Where Whine Meets Wine

I Choose

There’s my sign. There’s your sign. As I begin another journey. I’m telling you, you can begin yours too. No matter what you’re doing, where you are, or who you are… there’s your sign. We’ve all been waiting for something, right?

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out who I am and what I want to be, or do, in this life. It’s good to know that no matter what point I’m at, it’s never too late to choose another route.

And so today I am leaping in, with both feet. A new horizon. A new career. A new start.

Today I am thankful for the people in my life who encourage, support, uplift, and call me to tell me to take a deep, cleansing breath. I am thankful that with them, and often because of them, I am strong. I am determined. I am starting anew. It may not have be the life I pictured as a little girl. But it is definitely the life I want as an adult. It’s been a journey to this point, but as of today, I am choosing my life. I am (continuing) to live with intention. And I’m being intentional about it.

*Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts! Cross your fingers, this is a big weekend for me! Full of lessons, note-writing, training, and probably not a lot of sleep! Plus Littlest will be spending two nights IN A ROW away. (For the first time.) I already miss him. Hubbyman has promised to tell the grandparents that they can drop Littlest off with his daddy at any point over the weekend. I know they won’t, but his words were comforting to my mama heart. May you all have a weekend filled with new adventures, incredible food, and unending wine bottles!


Very Pin-teresting

What do you do when you’re sick? What do you do when your kids are sick? They actually haven’t watched too many movies this week, as we’re all feeling a little run down and blah. We have read countless books, done lots of snuggling, and turned the house into a disaster. I tried to convince myself to stay up last night and get some things done, but I only lasted about 20 minutes.

I also have found a new love. I joined a while ago and thought it was cool but never spent any time getting to know it, using it, or anything else…until now. (I had to find something to do while the kids watched a Barney Halloween for the third day in a row.) Pinterest. I can tell already it’s going to be an addiction. I really think anyone and everyone will love it. But if you have any special interests, such as cooking, decorating, crafting, or anything artistic…you’re probably going to have to warn your spouse, significant other, best friend that you’re going to be busy for the… foreseeable future. Ok, maybe not that extreme, but seriously, once you start pinning, it’s hard to stop! There’s just so many completely awesome things!

I came across this and seriously, I feel like telling my daughter this every night before she goes to sleep (I won’t, but I hope she really, really listens to this.).
