House (Site) Cleaning

It's been a minute... to the point where I forgot how to even access this space. I'm excited to share that I'm still here, just with a lot of life updates and changes.

So much time has passed, that it might be best to do a quick review of what's been going on:

  • The boys are now 8 and 9.
  • We're still in the Raleigh area, and still absolutely love it. It has definitely become home, and I'm thankful for our lives have evolved here in the last 9 (what, 9??) years.
  • I'm still keeping up with crafts, but they've also evolved with the growth of activities in our lives.
Let's dive into that last one a bit. I'm doing less sewing and baking, but lots of needlework crafts: knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, etc. More so because those projects are portable and often quick to complete. We do a lot of camping (we bought a camper, sold it, and got a slightly bigger one!), so all of those crafts are very conducive to traveling and transporting them on the go.

Around the middle of last year, I also started bullet journaling. A co-worker had gotten me into it and it helped me feel a little bit of control with chaotic life activities. Bullet journaling also appealed to my sticker-loving, pen-hoarding heart, so it was a no-brainer that I'd instantly become obsessed with it. It's help in juggling kids activities, my hobbies (beyond needlecraft, I've also taken up tennis, and I'm still doing a lot of workout coordination and planning), and of course, I have to pay the bills, so work task management.

I'll occasionally post with craft updates and maybe some favorite recipes.
