Thank you for visiting my blog; it is an exciting venture for me and I hope this will become a forum for moms and homemakers of all types to share stories, frustrations, and triumphs. There will be recipes, pictures of my latest and greatest soap creations, and anything I think will be interesting to Enthusiastic Homemakers.....

Can I just start over today?
I woke up this morning feeling very excited about the week ahead, and wanting a "do-over". We had several not-so-great things happen this weekend, along with a very sad thing; which of course, made me sad; but also impressed on me the preciousness of life and the importance of living every day, not just to its fullest, but living up to our best self every day. I feel that I haven't been doing that lately, that although I have been waking up every morning giving it my all, there are several very important areas that I have fallen down quite severely in. I hope that all the yucky things that made this weekend, well, not great; will be a catalyst for improving those areas. I'm determined to make this week better, by being more present and patient for my children, and making my currently messy house neat and peaceful. I also need to take better care of myself, allowing myself the time to; imagine this...sit down?! In that spirit, I will be posting some items and pictures today, on a much lighter note, I promise! Ok, now that I'm done being Debbie Downer, onward and upward!
