True Love

I've spent much of the past eight years grateful that I waited on true love.

There could have been a few other men who took my husband's place, had I not waited.

And, I would likely be sorry for it.
But, I did wait. 

Even though the time was painful and felt like it might never come. 

It was worth it.
Now, I wake up joyfully and delight in the life all around me.

I have an amazing man who would no doubt give his very life for me.

And two adorable children who can make me smile at the drop of a hat.

I know that I am one blessed woman.
And I give all of the credit to God. 

For leading me and guiding me.

And always answering my prayers in his perfect timing 
(even when I am impatient and "want what I think I want right now!".)
I'm reflecting on love with Valentine's day just around the corner. 
Christmas decor is down (insert my super sad face here). 
Anyone else think it came and went all too quickly?

But I am looking forward to what this new year holds. Good things I am sure.

I have reopened my Etsy shops including my photography shop which has been closed since before Owen was born! I am finding a lot more time to create and work on the computer during naps and after their bedtime.
The image at the very top of this post is titled, "True Love No. 1" and is my latest work available over there. All of the other images in this post are also available in my shop with more coming soon.

Hopefully, I will find some time to list more handmade and vintage items in my other shop (that I recently renamed "alicewcollection" for those who remember me as "aliceslookingglass"). 
Got to take advantage of those nap times during the day!

Hope you will stop by and look around! 

Blessings for the week ahead.
Till next time...

    Yes, Christmas came way too fast. Had I been more organized I might have accomplished all I wanted to but the season was nice anyway.
