FIVE Years of Me

Today marks FIVE years since the start of this blog.

FIVE.YEARS.

That blows my mind, that I've been blogging that long.  That I've had that much to say, to share, to remember.  It just blows me away.  I've never kept a diary that long, never mind FIVE YEARS

Looking back on the years, I've noticed the decrease in my posts.  The decrease in scrappiness shared. The decrease of people stopping to say Hi.  It is what it is.  I'm not here to have people "follow" me.  If people like what I've got to say or share, & they leave a comment, that's fabulous.  However, I'm not doing this for any of that.  I'm doing this to remember.  I want to remember all the good & bad, though lately I haven't shared much of either...I know, I know, I'm trying to get back to being the "better blogger". 

I had planned to post my new scraproom for my "Blog-aversary", but life got in the way.  I've been working on Project Life (still catching up), & I need to tidy up the room a bit before I take pics.  Of course, between all this, the summer has kept us busy & now we're in full "back-to-school" mode.  The last couple of days have been spent clothes shopping & school supply shopping....fun stuff. 

Like I mentioned, I have been working on Project Life so I hope to have my June pages to share soon.  I would love to get caught up quicker once the girls go back to school, so I won't be so far behind.  I seem to constantly be two months behind & all the inserts slow me down a bit too.  I need to remember to "Keep It Simple", but I'll get a spark of mojo & run with it before I realize that I'm complicating something that's designed to be simple.  Story of my life.  Oh well.

With that, I do want to thank anyone that does take the time to read my words.  It makes me happy to see comments from people, I really appreciate the love, Thank You. 

Made with the Silhouette Cameo, just using the "Arial Black" font & a great quote I found on Pinterest.
