I've got several things to share with you today, so you might want to grab a cup of something to sip in case this runs on for a bit.
Got your cup? Ready? Okay, let's see...
First off, I have to thank my dear friend Angela from BlogMommas for bestowing this upon me:
I'm always a little flustered when I'm on the receiving end of compliments (I have a hard time believing I deserve them), but I'm grateful and humbled that Angela would think of me to bestow this upon. Thank you my friend!
Secondly, I'm sure my regular readers (all three of you!) recall that I mentioned back in..umm...what month was that? July?!? Seriously?!?!? Oh for crying out loud, has it really been that long? Yes, much to my embarrassment, it was in July when I announced that I was taking a break and would come back with lots to say and a new blog design. (Apparently, my ability to estimate how long it'll be before I get something done is seriously flawed. That certainly explains a lot!)
The point is, I've got a new blog design. I've even got a button you can grab (hint, hint!) I must give major kudos and floods of gratitude to Rocio Cobos of Mami Picture for all her patience in trying to figure out what I wanted this blog to look like when I hardly knew it myself. I'd love to hear what you think of it, so please, please leave me some feedback, okay? Good, bad or indifferent, I really want to know what you think!
And while I'm picking your brain, perhaps you could answer another little question for me. I've been thinking a lot about what direction I'm going in...in life, faith, homeschool, the farm, everything. And since this blog is, basically, an extension of my life, I'm wondering about the direction I want to take it as well. So, I'm curious....what kinds of posts do you enjoy? What things would you like to see me write about more? When I tell people about myself (homeschooling mom of five on a 3.5 acre farm) I generally get a response along the lines of "You must lead a pretty interesting life!" But I'm suffering from a case of "I can't see the forest for the trees." It's my life and I'm kinda used to it by now. Perhaps I'm taking for granted certain things about my life, things that maybe aren't as mundane as I think they are. Any thoughts? Anyone?
