When I started this blog, I thought, "I can post everyday"...that didn't happen. Posting  every week hasn't necessarily happened either.  What has happened is LIFE.  The good, the bad and the ugly.  I had to experience the days as the stay at home mom with the sick kid, unexplainable migraines are not a pretty thing. I had to experience the work crew not getting things done on time.  I had to endure the endless, "I am sorry mam, the item you are inquiring about is on back order."  I've had to change plans, redo schedules, and be a WIFE and MOTHER.  And, deal with the separation of my parents, one too many times.  I type all of this to say, I appreciate all who can blog daily, produce great before and afters, but I will be one to comes first for me, and while I'd like to have the daily show and just ain't happening right now.  Life however,  is.  Raw, real, and painful.  We have many projects in the works. Little by little we are accomplishing them.  But, when real life circumstances get placed before us, they come first.  So, for those of you still with me, thank you...the reveals will eventually come, but for now...real life awaits me, and expects an answer.

Life always comes first, so right! We'll always stick with you here.

Ps. I was reading the One Thousand Gifts book today and thinking of you. It's such an amazing book. I'm starting my own list of 1000 things I'm thankful for.

Praying for you, that you can learn from and overcome anything that life has in store for you (: xo M

I couldn't have said it better myself Lauren. I often wonder about those bloggers who devote hours and hours to posting when they have a family to attend they just get pushed to the wayside as they try to stay in the forefront of the blog world? If it ever gets to be a competition for me, I will bow out. I've seen some other bloggers whose personal lives have really suffered because they have let blogging take over their lives.

We will be here for you my friend, take care of yourself and what's important in life.
