Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Hello to all of my lovely stitchy friends!

I have missed everyone here and have lots to update you all with.  I'll make it a short post though since I have limited time with a busy toddler. We ended up moving from Vancouver to my old hometown, Prince George! The decision was a hard one since we really loved where we lived and made close friendships with the parents in the neighbourhood. But we felt since Vancouver was becoming more and more expensive, that we had to make a move before Nathanael was of school age. 

So far it's been a good decision.  I have a new full time job which keeps me busy.  I get home by 4 pm now instead of 6 or 7 pm.  I don't spend 3 hours of commuting to and from's about 20 minutes in total! Huge difference in quality of life.  We still don't have a vehicle but we are working on that.  My family is so happy to have us here and we have been doing all sorts of family gatherings and outings in PG.  Our house is nice too.  We are renting right now.  We may buy in the future, which is more realistic here than in Vancouver.  There's definitely things I will miss in the big city but not the crowds or the commutes, that's for sure. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Oh, and I've been stitching my son a little Prairie Schooler ornament.  No picture yet but I'm eager to get it done for our January 7th Christmas....I still have time!

Hope you enjoyed the update!!!

WOW How long has it been?!! One Year!

Not sure if anyone will read this but hello out there!

I've wanted to post many times but had difficulty getting into my blog until now.  Not sure why, perhaps it has to do with all the changes to blogger since I last logged on.

Now an update.  My little boy is two! Time has flown by as a full time working mama with a busy toddler.  No stitching has been done but I've been feeling an itch to stitch! My replacement hobby has been making essential oil products for me and my family.  I've got quite the collection growing and love studying about each essential oil and their benefits. 

Really not a lot to say here other than a big hello from me and it's been lovely to see so many of my blogger friends on Instagram.  It's the easiest platform for me to use on the go.  I do miss blogging though just a wee bit.  I still would like to update every so often and not take over a year to pop  in.  Hopefully I can upload a few photos for you to all see!

Cheers and big hugs from me...

Hope you enjoyed the light sprinkling of photos! There's been so much going on it's hard to make edits!
