I think I might have to change the name of my blog.
What started out as a great plan with lots of ideas has fizzled out a little bit. This is due to many things but in essence, my mood has been too low to be truly creative and have the energy to make all the things that I want to make and to spend time making my home as beautiful as I'd like to.
Recently I've been visiting a few of my finance's friend's homes and it has depressed me no end seeing how beautiful their homes are. But that's not our fault. We've gone through so much and had to flee our home so we don't have the means to do what they've done. A lot of them have lived where they are for years and been together double the time we have been so it makes sense that they have 'grown up' and lovely homes, but I can't help a little bit of the green eyed monster being around.
I know things will get better. They have to get better.
I keep saying this to myself and I have to believe it: The hard time will make the good times better and the tough times will make us stronger as a couple and as a family when that time comes. If we can get through what we've been through in our lives so far then we can do anything we want to!
Instead of focusing on what I haven't got, I'd like to focus on what I do have - right now.
I have a wonderful fiancé who loves me just as much as I love him and I can't wait to become his wife (whenever we can manage to pull a wedding together).
I have my fantastic little Roofus, my playful boy who gives the best cuddles.
My amazingly beautiful Dakota, with her love of cuddles and her swishy little tail
And I have one slice of my delicious (and first ever) Victoria Sponge cake left in the fridge!
I might not have a lot - but what I do have is enough to make me smile today.
Now....what to rename this blog?
