I'm baaack!!! (Warning: very picture heavy post)

Hi All.....

I'm going to start by apologizing to you about the 6 month delay in posting anything.  I've been out enjoying life.  Oh, believe me, I've been making projects too so no need to worry, I'm back on the posting bandwagon.

I don't usually share much about my personal life but I feel like since it's been 6 months since I've shared anything, I'll let you know what I've been doing.

We enjoyed a little snow up here in North Idaho and got to watch some of the wildlife cruise around.

My husband and I drove around a lake to go eagle watching and came across a group of guys who created an ice hockey rink out on the lake and were playing a game.   I thought this was note worthy for sure!

After about 3-4 months of snow and cold and cold and snow, I kept shouting:

and then I remembered - I bought a new headband at a craft show!!! I'm good to go!

OH, I had a birthday in the last 6 months and got this really awesome, unique vase as a gift from my grandparents.

In May I went to California for my Aunt Kim's wedding and to spend some much needed time with family.  I got to catch up with my beautiful cousin Amelia. 

 My grandparents who hold a place very close to my heart.  We laugh like no other every time we are together.

 I spent some priceless time with my wonderful nieces.  I miss these girls like no other!

This is the beautiful chaos of fun and laughter that is my parent's home.  There is so much going on in this picture and every time I see it I can't help but laugh.

Look, they can be still - only for a short time while eating. 

After my trip to Northern CA to see my family and celebrate my aunt's union with her amazing husband, I only had to wait a short time before my best friend in the world came up to visit us.  We went to a Luke Bryan concert and had a blast!  Another friend of mine came with and we all ended up getting pit passes to be right in front of the stage.  Such a great concert.

In June I was honored to witness my sister-in-law marry her best friend.  I first met Shaina when she was just 11 years old.  I cannot express how proud I am of the woman she has become and her husband compliments her so very well.  I can't possibly say enough positive and happy things about these two!

 Almost all of the cousins, now scattered through the US were able to get together for a picture.  

 Yep, lots of silliness and laughter was had by all.

In July we had yet another grand occasion happen.  Grandma turned a young 70.  We snuck family in from out of state to surprise her along with a nice dinner boat cruise on Lake Pend Orielle in North Idaho.  It was a perfect evening and yet another great time with family, making memories.

Well, that just about sums up what I've been busy doing - spending lots of time with family and laughing more than it should be legal to do!  
We've done some pretty normal things too... fishing at one of our many breathtaking lakes in the area or painting our craigslist steal shed.

Well, that about sums up my past 6 months.  I have had so much fun with family and friends.  A lot of memories were made, and I'm looking forward to many many more.  Who knows, maybe I'll do this once a year or so to let you know who the face is behind the crafts you see.
