Today is my birthday!  I made myself finish up a good chunk of Quilt Festival responsibilities yesterday, so that I could have the day off from the computer today, and I’m so glad!  I’ve had a great day, celebrating with the family!

Over the last few years that I’ve been blogging I’ve often felt that I’m on the right path, but last weekend, at Market, was a huge dose of confirmation.  And I thought I should share here since this space and all of you have made this journey with me!  I really like this song, and have for a while, but lately I’m not relating to it as much as I have in the past.

I feel blessed to say that I’m no longer waiting, but that my real life has begun! My life as wife, and mom has been blessed each and every day, and with my creative passions being fulfilled…Life is GREAT!  All the work that I’ve put into my blog, writing a book and now planning the Sewing Summit is coming to fruition and being well received!   Not much more that this mom could ask for.  Well maybe a laundry/housekeeping fairy – hahaha

I’ve still got a bunch of goodies to share from Market, I really didn’t want to take away from the Festival, and so I’ve waited…this week, I promise!

Thanks for being on this journey with me.

Blessings ~ Amy

    What a great perspective! I’m often feel like I’m waiting for life to begin, too. Working full time with a little one at home and waiting for my husband to find a job so we can switch roles. I often feel like what I’m living isn’t quite my life, if you know what I mean. But, I suppose, if I’m always waiting for life to begin, then I may be missing what I’m living right now.

    good luck amy! you certainly deserve good things for all the kindness you send to all of us who take part in and/or enjoy the festival. it’s also my little grandson’s 2nd birthday…he beamed everytime we’d say happy birthday to him and answer “older” when we asked him how old he was.

    I love that song too. And I love that you are no longer waiting!

    I guess right now, my real life is just super busy with little people. Soon my real creative life will begin, but for me, the timing is off right now.

    I love having been here to see how much you have accomplished! It’s totally inspiring!
