This weeks roundup

Weekly roundup: this week has had some rocky moments but it has finished on a good note. We opened our home up to a teenager who needed a place to sleep so he could keep going to school. Not a permanent thing, but he now knows that our door is always open & that he is now an extended member of our family. I was in the same position when I was his age but I chose to leave school to get a job to pay my own bills. It was the biggest regret of my life.

Here's to new beginnings.

It's a new day. Today is the first day of this blog. Happy day of birth to my little blog! I am not new to blogging as in my former blogging life, I used to blog at Sew. Cook. Laugh. Live. Blog. It was my thing. But as life changes & families grow older, things change within ourselves. This blog is for me.... The mother of 2 teenage daughters, the wife of a man that I have been with for over 18 years, & the woman who is now closer to 40 than 30. My life is going in a new direction and I am embracing it with open arms. I have wanderlust running through my veins, I have a thirst to learn new things, I want to live a more simple life & I am going to share it all here. My thoughts, my dreams, my travels, the new things that I learn & the things that I may find time to make along the way. I will use this as my little place to store all the things that inspire me so that when I am needing to remind myself to live a full & happy life, I can come here. An online journal which is what blogging is all about. 

I want to live a life that is full of love. I want to speak my mind freely and clear my thoughts. And with that, I will raise my glass of & say "Here's to new beginnings!"

From Jos with love.  xx
