Has It Really been Almost a Month?

Hello bloggy friends, I have missed you! 
Sorry I stepped off the blogger train. 
I got a little off track. 
It's much easier to jump off a moving train than to catch back up and jump back on. 

In my mind I have written hundreds of posts.
  I guess you could compare it to planning on going for a run and never actually putting my running shoes on?
It's amazing how I filled up the time I spent blogging with other "stuff." I know you would all laugh at me if I said I was "busy," isn't everyone?   I'm no busier than any of you, I just lost my sense of time management for a bit, but I'm back and I can't wait to see all the wonderful things you've been up to.

We have had some huge changes in our family this last month. 
My husband is retiring from a job he has LOVED for the past 21 years and starting a new career in the private sector.  Our girls think their Dad's job is the "coolest" in the whole world and don't want him to leave it, but the timing is perfect and it just feels right.  It's happening so fast.  Very exciting and scary all at the same time.  We are definitely stepping out of our hula hoop (comfort zone) to new uncharted territory.
On top of that I'm coaching club volleyball and have been traveling to tournaments out of the San Diego area. 
Both my girls continue to be busy with their own school work, club sports, and school teams.

While I haven't been blogging I still am addicted to projects and here's a preview of some of the things I've been working playing on. 

Painting Project

Sewing Project

 Mixing It Up

 Rope Project

Spring Decor

I'll show you more soon and I'm excited to see what you've been working on this past month.

 Thank you to all my bloggy friends that sent me an email to check up on me, so sweet!

Thanks for checking it out.



  1. Hi Shannon, I've missed you! I'm glad that things are going well, and best of luck to your family and your husband in his new career. The projects you've been working on look great; I'm excited to see more of them. Especially the one with the rope! Glad you're back to blogging but I can so relate to how tough it gets to keep up with sometimes!

  2. Missed you, as you know! Glad you are back. Best Wishes to the entire family on your husband's job change. Can't wait to see all those projects of yours.

  3. I'm so glad you're back! I've been missing your fabulous projects!

  4. Glad you're back, Shannon.
    Sounds like a lot of change is coming! Good luck to your husband- I hope everything works out and that the transition is not too challenging.
    Breaks from blogging are good. :)

  5. welcome back, shan. so happy to hear about your new frontier. very exciting to say the least. congratulations all around.

    ready to see all your cool projects.

  6. I am so glad you're back! Excited for your family's new adventure : )

  7. Can you post how the pallet is coming along? Any changes good or bad yet? Sorry about your dog. It's just as bad as losing human family to me. But can't live without one very long either. This is my first time reading your blog. I really enjoyed your projects.

    I'm working on a garden and eventually then renovation and remodeling of a house but it's sloooooooooowwwwwwww going Right now while deciding what to do next I'm enjoying dreaming up different ideas/plans but I am chomping at the bit to do more. We've been on hold a few months due other issues, money mainly, unexpected dental bills (darn halloween candy), work projects, parents health, etc.

    I have a cousin in San Diego that is an architect or civil engineer perhaps is more accurate. He really changed everything about their house and now it's very modern and looks out over the city from that curvy road going up to a park? I've only been there once so can't remember the name now. Ok sorry for rambling.
