1st Post....Let Me Explain

I decided to try blogging again after the birth of my first child! Blogging is definitely a skill that I need much improving on! Hopefully I can make this blog interesting or helpful in some way! Here is my story:

I am now a stay at home mom and had my first baby the end of May! I have learned so much by my baby and have been inspired to try many new things! I figure why not post all the recipes, crafts, photography and sewing adventures that I am taking on?! I love photography and do it on the side, mostly as a hobby! I love to craft and sew (still trying to master sewing). Living in a small town with no fast food/Resturant places means I make dinner every are a must! I moved to this small town after I meet my hubby in college. We bought a house, fixed it up, had a baby and now here we are! Living in a small town takes planning and craftiness because you can't just run out to Walmart to grab whatever you need! I will never take that convenience for granted ever again!

Family and religion are very important to me! I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! What Iove about being LDS is the it is centered around families! I am so grateful that I am sealed in the temple with my family for time and all eternity and not just til death do we part! In my ward I am Primary musical director and sunbeams teacher with my hubby!

In September, I am going to have a preschool! In our house the basement is just the perfect size for one! I went to school for elementary Ed with an emphasis in early childhood, but since moving, I never got to finished! While going to school I got this feeling that I needed to move to the teeny tiny town that my husband is from! I kept pushing that feeling away and never discussed it with my hubby! I worked at Ihop and went to school and my hubby was just working! Life was good, our apartment was small but updated, I wasn't gonna complain! That feeling still lingered and I kept pushing it away! The more I pushed it away that more stressful life got! At work I wasn't getting enough tables or tips, my hours were longer! My schoolwork became super hard and stressful! I failed a math test miserably that I had studied so hard for! My hubby had a hour and a half commute to work over the mountain and since it being wintertime, meant longer driving time for him and less time for me to see him! Then my hubby got in a car crash and that was the tip of the iceberg for me! A few days later my hubby walked in the front door to me crying! He said babe what's wrong (thinking someone had died) then I told him for the past month I have been getting the feeling that we needed to move! He was happy but was trying to contain it cause I was sad! I didnt want to quit school or change the content life we had but that feeling got stronger and life got more stressful until we moved! The Lord knows what you need in your life and we just need to trust him! It was a lesson I will never forget! To get back on track, they only have one other preschool here and last year they had so many kids they were turning people away! I figured for preschool you don't have to have a degree or license, just a business license! I have all the schooling for it and even know CPR and have my food handlers permit! With the preschool in my home I can work and make a little extra money while not being away from my kid (kids in the future)! My in law lives four houses down and is more than happy to come over during class and play with my baby, so that works out perfectly! I will post about how it is going with pictures! Well...I think I have rambled on enough and if you are reading this....thanks for reading! I hope it wasn't a totally bore!
