It's been brought to my attention that I have not written anything here in a long freaking time and it's true! I've been really busy with living life and I haven't made much time to write about it.
So what's been going on with us? Well, let's start with the kids since that's what this is all about.
Miss A turned 13 a couple of weeks ago, though we all know she's been a teenager in mind for a while...No, she's actually blossoming from an amazing child to a wonderful young lady. I am very proud of her! She went on her first airplane trip by herself to visit her Nana in Utah. They went to the zoo, an amusement park, and her very first concert! The baby who made me a mommy isn't much of a baby anymore...
CC is coming into her own as well. She's definitely becoming her very own person: smart, talented, and has her very own interests in things. She's got opinions about everything. The biggest challenge with her is teaching her when it's appropriate to express those opinions and when going along is the best option. She's got some spunk in her and I love it! She'll definitely be one who gets what she wants out of life and she'll do it by force if need be.
Hubby and I have started our very own business. You may or may not remember that we switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping a while ago. Part of getting on board with that, for us, was learning to make our own e-liquid, or e-juice. It was important to me to know how it was all made. I needed to know that I was moving away from something really bad for me and toward something that was going to be better. A lot of research went into really committing to vaping and that lead me to become passionate about the flavor of my e-liquid. Needless to say we developed some flavors and released a juice line: Shades of X. We are doing well and are loving every minute of it.
Of course we both still have our jobs. I don't know that this will ever become something I can do fulltime, but it's fun and we are helping people. That's the point.
I am going to try to find time to write at least once a week. It's a really good exercise for me, even if no one ever reads it. It's good to find time to reflect on life and find out what really matters. Life can get pretty overwhelming if I never take a step back and look at the bigger picture.
If you're reading this, how are you? What's new in your life?
