Hello friends who are my readers!! I know, I know You must be thinking Where have you been, Jill? Right? And I’m sorry about that. I truly am. I will repent just as soon as I finish this post.
Okay so first off–how are YOU? I want to know. Leave me a comment below and let me know the ONE MOST REMARKABLE THING about this year so far. Do you have one? If not, please let me know how you are doing! I pray for all of you and hope you are doing the same for my family and me. Thank youuuu!
Okay so here is the TRUTH. I have been so busy with good stuff that I haven’t done much writing except in my journal. Acquiring another kiddo–our beloved Lilly–has been a transition but in excellent ways. Honestly this has been the easiest most wonderful time, to have her living with us. She’s a gem!! Give a shout out to her in the comments if you can. Welcome her to the blogosphere! Here’s a picture of all of us while we were on Spring Break in Kentucky. We went to Lake Cumberland and it felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves. Very Last of theMohicans with a little Friday the 13th thrown in. Nothing bad happened but it COULD HAVE because we were the ONLY ones around for MILES, except for the creepy gift-shop attendant. My creative mind blathered on for hours about all of the COULD HAPPEN scenarios until I was just plain ready to go home.
Luckily Bode made us Green Lantern shrink-dink rings (yes I operated the hot oven), which made me feel a whole lot safer. Well, and my husband is a stud and never would have let anything bad happen but still–the imagination overdrive, people!
While on said vacation Lilly and I decided something kind of BIG: she will help me write and photograph for this blog! She’ll be offering up ideas that I’ll write about and doing some of the photography for me. She is blessed with two creative parents (at least, hey, I think that’s a blessing), so of course she’s creative. Plus hey, she’ll be able to add this crazy blog as a bonus on her college applications. Whether this will help or hurt her chances of acceptance is yet to be seen.
Here is another family picture. At least the children look presentable. These goofs are the people I love with abandon. MY PEOPLE. I also have MY WOMEN, of whom you are a member.
Stay tuned for art projects and creative endeavors with MY PEOPLE and MY WOMEN. I promise to fill you in on all of it!Love and a
