Do you ever feel like you have bulldozed by a Mack truck going 90 miles an hour? Do you ever feel like life is slipping away from you without you really ever realizing it? So you ever feel like there is just never enough time in the day, and then, when there is… you don’t do anything at all and can’t figure out why you can’t get motivated?

Well, that has been me in a nutshell this summer. I have hardly picked up my camera(which is why I have once again failed in the 365 project) and that is not like me. I have hardly blogged, which… I am very frustrated about, but honestly, if I were blogging, it would probably be me whining like a little baby about things that don’t really matter. 

So, here is the deal. I am letting myself off the hook. Which means, I am not worried about taking a picture each day. I am not going to punish myself over these things that I am not getting done, and am going to celebrate the little things. 

I don’t have to blog every day. 

I don’t have to take a picture… every day. 

I just have to be a good mom and wife. 

I need to be happy.

I need to celebrate life, each and every day. The big, the small and the insignificant.

Thank you for listening… we are taking a vacation soon and I am praying that when we come back, I come back with the Candace that I used to be.

Lift your head up!.......You're doing fine.........better to not keep up with a picture a day or your blog than to keep up with those things and not your adorable little ones.
I so can't believe that little guy is almost 1......where did the time go?

There are so many things that I wanted to blog about and it just never got done........and so I just have to let it go.............life is most important!....And we're all here.........whenever you get to it!.......

Take care.........
