Mini Blog Makeover & some VIP news!

Look who got the Blog design bug again, yup ME. In between organizing my house, I took a wee bit of a time out to reorganize my blog too. Not exactly how I want it yet, but the small changes I've made are making me very happy for now.

Hey listen, I know I've been MIA for way too long, but I promise (pinky promise) that SOON I will have tons and tons to share with all of you. I've been working hard on projects all around the NEW house, and since that's what I'm doing lately, that's what I'm going to share.

I finally rented my old house, and I would love to take you on a tour of the place, now that it's all clean and pretty looking. I will be sharing all the pics next week! Oh boy, if you remember my FIRST POST you will see how absolutely funny it is, that I finally have a spotless house he he, and all it took was for us to MOVE out, lol. Go figure :)

I don't like spending money on organizing, so I've come up with some pretty cool ways to tame the mess, in a very affordable way. I can't wait to show you!!

I've been thinking a lot about if I want to bring Amaze me August back, and when I went to go look through some old link ups, GUESS what, they were all gone. Ooops my subscription ended and I didn't even realize it, so I'm going to decide what I want to do and let you know shortly. I'm pretty sure I will continue to have a linky party here, but it might be a bit different than before, lets see.

Oh and one more thing, I want to apologize to all my friends. Believe me when I tell you, I NEVER really forgot about you, I think about you all the time, but sometimes you just gotta let go, and take life one day at a time. (p.s. I've added a BUNCH of my most fav blogs to the sidebar on the left, go see..) It seems every time I had a plan to do the BIG giveaway, or start blogging again, (somebody else) always had a different plan. It has truly been the most hectic and CRAZY six months of my life, and I hope I'm not ruining things by saying I think it's getting better. I wish I could have done things better, but most days were simply too overwhelming too think of anything more than what's for dinner tonight, oh and.... kids do you have any homework, did you brush your teeth, what day is it today?

That is life I guess, reminding me daily that NOTHING is truly in our control. So thanks for sticking by me, and once again, I look forward to what tomorrow brings, and I hope that it will bring much funner days filled with laughter, health, and maybe even some blogging in between!

Here's to LIFE, cherish it, embrace it, and never forget how blessed you are even if it doesn't seem that way at the moment.


  1. Bella, this is such a great post- I really enjoyed the end message. We should be grateful even if we are having a rough time, etc. Some days just get away from us so don't feel bad! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us! It's so nice to catch back up- I've been following your blog for a few years now and I just love all of your posts! :)

  2. You are so funny Bella! Lovely pic of the house:) I haven't been blogging much lately either, I guess I'll see you around!

  3. I miss you so much friend!! I totally understand. It's so hard to get everything situated isn't it. I'm STILL not all together either. I haven't had time for my blog lately at all. But sometimes you have to step away for something so you can take care of all the other things that are going on. I've added TOO much to my to-do's to many times. One thing and one day at a time really have helped me out. Can't wait for you to be back! :)

  4. Welcome back!!! Glad all is coming together for you!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
