Now Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Program...

Hi everyone, I'm back from my bloggy break! As I mentioned earlier this week my break was anything but restful, but for all the hard work I'm happy to report we're (99%) unpacked, my sweetie is on the mend and we are more than ready for our lives to return to a calm normalcy.

Oh, but guess what?!
October 1st marked the one year birthday for this blog!

I can't believe it's been that long already. I started this blog as a means of journaling our learning fun so our family and friends could stay in the loop while we're living out here in the ocean. I never would have believed it was going to be such a blessing in disguise. Through the process of blogging I've discovered my passion for homeschooling and Montessori, both of which have changed our lives for the better. I've also been blessed by all of you! Your ideas, your advice, your support, your overall amazing-ness has helped me to become a better mother, wife and friend to myself. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that.

In honor of my bloggy birthday and because I want to say thank you (again!), I'm excited to have not one, but TWO giveaways this month with another one in November. Hooray for good (and free!) things! :) Be sure to check back tomorrow for the first giveaway!



~Thank you for your comments!~
