I think you all know me well enough to assume that when the blog is quiet, my wheels are turning. Always thinking is my little mind and the conclusion I've come to is that I'm tired of being ordinary. It has suited me well for 31.5 years, but the era has passed and I'm going to be extraordinary from here on out.
This year is going to be big. I promise nothing but am committing to the following: publishing SOMETHING. After several attempts at releasing a manuscript it's time to put something together that's timely and that makes me happy. I might try a magazine to start out with. If you haven't seen – Blurb (my fav publisher) has a new magazine format which would be an incredibly fun way to advertise or inform. That's on my radar.
I am also committed to spending less time on the house and spending more time outside of it.
I have big plans for Axel. If there's anything more difficult about being extraordinary in the Minnesota-suburbia-middle-class, it's raising kids who are passionate and unique. I will find a niche for this kid that encompasses the amazing human that he is.
Oliver needs to exercise those rapidly expanding brain cells. He's in for some exciting new adventures as we look forward to preschool (with or without pull-ups).
The other night I told Jahred that I wish I had enough balls to buy an RV and travel the country for the next year. He said, "why not?"
It could happen.
In the mean time I thought I'd share our DIY Valentines for the upcoming February 14th. Start snatching your paint samples – Axel had a blast making these bookmarks for his classmates.
NEW - I'm searchable!
