Summer is here!!!!!!

Well I'm back...I've been away for a while. I needed time to take care of some family things and to get organized again...I swear when something happens in your life it's hard to recover, but I'm back at it and ready for SUMMER!!! The kids get out of school...tomorrow!!! My little Ryder has been so excited...he can hardly stand it. My middle son keeps trying to convince me that he doesn't need to go until later in the morning, because their not doing anything...SORRY!!! So as soon as the last bell rings for the school year...around 3pm it will be official...SUMMER BREAK!!!

I truly love to have the kids home...I know longer have to be up at the crack of dawn. We can all sleep in , stay up late, watch movies, swim. stay outside till 10pm and watch my little one enjoy the neighborhood's those little things that I enjoy most. I know some mom's dread for summer with the kids, but I totally love it...most of the time. We really have nothing planned...I'm sure Chicago will be one trip we all love to take for a long weekend and hopefully just swimming, visiting and enjoying family and friends.

My goal this summer is to really start getting this Blog up and going...My mind is constantly racing with ideas, projects I want to complete and books to read, recipes to try and decorating and repainting something in my house...LOL!!! It's always something...but honestly Blogging is something I really want to start doing and get my creative juices going...posting pics of my family, friends, how to projects, our garden and the Fresh Veggies will have this summer, food I've prepared and craft projects, websites I love and of course NEW things coming to Modern Charm. So I have have a lot to do and it's not even tomorrow yet...hahaha!!!

So a couple of times a week I'm planning on taking my laptop outside while I get some rays and share my life with you...Crazy most of the time, but happy and content all the time. I look forward to giving you a glance in my hectic and enjoyable life and share the many things I love about Summer!!

Until next time...Y

Spring Break!!!

Well, it's day 3 of Spring Break and I'm ready for a vacation from home...wish I was able to spend my days in the sun drinking fruity drinks, watching the kids play in the sand looking for shells and enjoying  the evening sun set...UGH!!! Instead I get to work and finish up taxes and watch the weather change from sun, rain and snow all in 1 week...I'm so glad that April is here and SPRING is in the air. The flowers are starting to bud on the trees, the grass is starting to turn green and you can leave the house with just a light jacket instead of your heavy coat...NICE!!
Everyone always feels better when the sun is shining and birds chirping and flowers's a RENEWAL...REFRESH...from the Winter BLAHS!!!! And I've had my share of that lately, so I'm really getting excited about Spring...which always means NEWNESS!!! I've been very busy looking for New Artist and Crafters to place in my shop and let me tell you...I feel like things are finally starting to look up...Thank God!!! I've been talking to some really talented people lately and honestly the most friendly group of ladies I've been lucky enough to meet online. I've got a little of everything from children's clothing, jewelry, handmade purses and women's handmade tops...everything is so darn cute!!!

I promise I will have pics so you can see what I've been looking at and what will be arriving in the shop this Spring and Early Summer!!!

I'm also making a few NEW items to place in the shop as well...once completed I will share with you and post pics!!
So, I'm going to go for now considering my accountant is waiting for some numbers, so I need to go...LOL!!! Thanks, for visting my blogspot and I will start adding more this month with pics, more favorite sites I love and NEW things arriving soon.
I can't wait to chat more...xoxo -Y-

Spring is in the air....

Finally the month of March...Yipee!!!

It has been a very stressful year so dad passed away a little over a month ago as my spirit left me...his passing changed the way I look at life and how I intend to live my life.
It's a New Beginning for my family!!! I'm ready to get back to work and start where I left off. I have many exciting things I want to share...and having a blog featuring my Business "Modern Charm" was one thing I've always wanted to do.

 So, yesterday I thought I'd take a trip to our local  Joanne Fabrics trying to get inspired and came across this book called Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey. I've heard about it and thought I'd purchase it and see what happens...I honestly couldn't put it down. I sat down on the couch last night while everyone was sleeping and started this fun adventure of blogging. So here I am writing my 1st exciting!!!

I'm really looking forward to connecting with crafters and artisans from all over the US and hopefully get my mojo back!!!  So please post websites you love and can't live without and if you have a favorite blog please share with me. 

 I can't wait to talk about some of my favorite things: Shopping, books, fashion, decorating, cooking...favorite recipes, scrap booking, and music, but more than likely you'll hear plenty about my crazy life at home with my kids...LOL!!!
