Because We Try


A layout and a song. It's been a crazy good week here. Lot's of exciting things going on (scrappy related and otherwise). I've been asked to write a feature article for Magazine which will be out in June. I was sent an email by Tammy letting me know that I was on the CatWalk this week over at Scrap In Style TV! I was nominated by Wilna too which made the surprise all that much more the sweeter because I love her work.

Ethan and I are quickly approaching a new season in this life together and we are embracing it with both arms and running. It's so cool when we both are reaching out and getting something in return. It's been a joy to see all the work that we've done together as well as individually come to fruitation. I dare say that I am proud of us, if only for the reason of seeing to the tending of our lives.

A quote that I saw today (on Tammy's blog) that has left me thinking as well is this one by Margaret Young.

"Often people attempt to live their life backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do,in order to have what you want."

Kind of fits right in with what I 'm thinking here and where I'm at right now.

I've added some more music to my playlist (see below at the bottom of my blog if you want). Finding new music is always a good thing in my book too. New to me I should say, I always have been a day late and a dollar short when it came to being "hip" when things were actually considered to be "hip." The song in this post is We Crawl by Polyphonic Spree. Really like this one and how the message evolves along with the song. Anyways, hope all is well your way and that you can see the blessings before you even when it may seem a bit dark.
