A year...

Its been a year since my last post...I had no idea it had been that long. Life has gotten so busy I rarely have a moment to myself. Recently I have decided that has to change. I love my family and I love being with them , but I have HAVE to find time for myself...if not i will lose who I am. Therefore I am going to make sure I set time aside so that I can do things I love and things I need for myself. Im desperately trying to find time for exercise and for my hobbies and I hope to keep up with the blog again. So lets do this!   :)
