I've been a little MIA lately. I don't really even have a good reason. Except that I've kind of reached that point in my pregnancy where I become really mean and nasty. My mom is the lucky one who gets to hear my daily rants about people who bug me. Thanks, Mom.

And I've been slammed with orders lately. That's normally a good thing, but lately I've been working with some really intense people who have a hard time understanding that making paper goods isn't my full-time job. I've considered closing up my shop for a little while, just to take a breather. I think I've decided against that for now.

Ready for me to stop complaining? I recently got into canning, and I've been busy with 25 pints of jam and some dilly beans. What? Never had a dilly bean before? You're really missing out. I'd offer to share, but you'll have to go through Bryce to get to them, and I doubt he's really willing to part with a single bean. Also on the bright side, I finally reclaimed my kitchen after a week or two of heavy-duty cooking.

I took the picture above on a rare family outing a few weeks back. It's the first time all four of us went out of town in over a year. So despite a few mishaps and a bee sting (that really didn't help Hudson's phobia of bees), we had a great time.

I've got some really fun Halloween activities planned and nearly ready to share with you. So hold tight and I'll be back when I'm in a presentable mood with something fun to share. :)

Don't at all feel guilty for taking care of yourself!
I got your sweet message the other day and I am glad you are enjoying zumba.
Looking forward to seeing your cute Halloween projects.

It so hard juggling it ALL!!!! I think you do a spectacular job at balancing sixteen million different "jobs"--- :):) I've also been thinking about "closing shop" on my biz... it's hard when you love what you do, but we have the REST of our lives to be buisness women, right!? I hope the little miracle within brings you joy, even in the moments of frustration. xoxoxoxoxoxo
