So when I was sitting down to write this blog, I wasn't exactly sure where to start. There has been sooo much that has happened since my last update! I realized that I haven't written since October 23, 2018 and therefore immediately started feeling guilty... I have a tendency to be really hard on myself. Hopefully you all will be more forgiving of me than I am of myself... lol
Well... let's pick up where I left off with my last blog. The second half of show season was amazing. After the Fall Diddley Craft show we had "A Country Christmas" at Crystal Lake South High School. This craft show was a new one for us this year and we couldn't have been happier! Plus my husband is from Crystal Lake and we have close friends who work at the school. So we had lots of people come out and see us! I was exactly 30 weeks pregnant at that show.
After that, we had U of Wisconsin Parkside craft show, which we have been participating in for years now. I love this show, because we always have a lot of people who come back from the years before to get their new hat! This is such a blessing to hear. We finished the year with a few other shows and we couldn't have been more proud of everything we accomplished this year.
However... I was unable to attend the last craft show I had signed up for BECAUSE our beautiful Daughter was born. This was truly a Christmas Miracle. She came 5 weeks early and was only 4 pounds 15 ounces. Our Sweet Baby E is everything I have ever prayed for and so much more all wrapped up in her teeny package. And after an 11 day NICU stay, she was able to come home just days before Christmas.
Adjusting to being a new mommy has been amazing! I am so beyond blessed to be able to stay home with our little gift. She has already taught me so much. She has grown so much from her little peanut size at birth. I feel like every time I close my eyes she is bigger and able to do more and more. She is ALREADY double her birth weight and soooooo SMILEY!!!
So.. 2019!!!! I can't believe that it is April already. Little E is 4 months tomorrow.
I thought finding time for crocheting before I had a baby was difficult... hahaha was I wrong. As I'm sure any parent would have told me... LOL
Julie is already way ahead of me in terms of her role... as always!!! So I have been desperately trying to catch up! She is what I need in a business partner to keep me on my toes and she ALWAYS does!
The race to Craft Show Season has begun and I am already behind my super tight schedule. Speaking of Craft Shows... I have updated the Calendar with all of our shows as of right now. Head over to the "Events" page for everything that is coming up!
Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I look forward to continuing to fill you in with all the exciting news and updates as we continue through the year.
Talk again soon!
