I am happy

Again, months have passed and I have stayed away.  Oftentimes I feel like I don't have anything to give here.  I need to remember, I'm not giving... I'm keeping.  I have PLENTY to keep, y'all!

Since my last post, things have changed.  Big, beautiful, drastic changes!
November 26, 2013: Last day at the office job! There is said office behind me, where it belongs!

For the last six months I have been a stay at home aunt & housewife(housewife?  homemaker? I haven't decided which sounds less June Cleaver yet...)  Anyway, that's what I am.  It's what I've always been deep down.  I just want to take care of people, make them smile, make myself smile, laugh, make a difference, spread some love.  Everyday I wake up happy and looking forward to the day.  My girls and I, we have the best time together.  I feel so blessed that my siblings trust me to help raise up their littles. They make my heart burst on the regular, y'all!

In about a month, my sweet E will be moving on to big girl school & my nephew, A, will be coming to stay.  I am looking forward to having the little dude, but already tearing up thinking about not having E here regularly.  Thank the good Lord these babes are related to me and I can see them just about whenever I want!

And, THAT folks, is what I have been up to!
Pretty great, huh?

2 love notes:

  1. I related to what you wrote above so much, but it is hard to fully verbalize, more a feeling. I would be so happy to stay home, take care of a house, clean, watch little ones...I don't think I was ever meant for the career, business world. My sister recently asked if I would consider watching her little one who is almost 1 if she went back to work part time, but it would require me to move...that would be my dream job and why I so wish family were closer. I love that you love what you are doing and have the opportunity to be with them, so wonderful! :)

  2. LACEY! It's so great to read your posts again! I was checking in now & then to see if you had written anything since LAST SEPTEMBER!! So great to see you back, girl! Congratulations on your newfound job happiness! xo


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
