I'm Finally Back!

Finally, it seems like forever since I've been here. As most of you know, my husband is deployed to Afghanistan. He left in May and during the month of June, our Battalion lost numerous soldiers...Double digits! With that said, the stress was beginning to get to me. We have 3 children, 4, 6 & 7 and they were noticing that I was stressed. So, needing a break from life, we packed up and went to visit family for a few weeks. It was a much needed break and I'm happy to say that I am feeling a little better. Please keep the family members of the fallen Soldiers in your prayers.

Okay, now on to a happier note. Before I left I received an award! Gigi from The Cricut Bug gave me a Trendy Blog Award. Thanks Gigi! Sorry I am just now getting it posted.

I now get to pass this award on to 5 blogs that I think are "Trendy"! So, here it goes....

1.) Kristen @ KAH-Wink-E-Dink
2.) Diane @ 1CardCreator
3.) Scrappy @ It's a Scrappy World
4.) Stef @ Glitterbabe Greetings
5.) Alison @ Hairy Harry's Craft
