And so it begins...

Let's hope the third time is a charm! I've attempted the blogging thing a couple of times before and it didn't work out so well...and now I'm mad about it, because my kids are funny, and I've missed documenting so many of the cute and charming things they say. Oh well, better late than never!
A little about me:
I love all things vintage. Clothing. Shoes. Jewelry. Purses. Movies. TV shows. The tv show "American Pickers" about finding dusty, discarded treasures in people's barns. Vintage speaks to me.
I live in Seattle, where it rains a lot. (Like you didn't know that). I have come to really love the rain. And if it is sunny too many days in a row I start to get grouchy. Kind of backwards, huh?
I can't sit still for very long. I feel like I'm wasting the day away, and I must occupy myself immediately... hence, my love for crafting and sewing. I'm certainly not very good at it yet, but I have hope that I will be someday.
I love so many things, and I truly believe in the happiness brought to one's life by focusing on love. Who/what do I love?
God. My husband, who also happens to be my best friend. My children, who are my absolute treaures in life. ("Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." -Matthew  6:21). My mom and dad, and my brother, and my aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents-- some are in other states, and some are in heaven-- no matter, I love them all deeply and miss them all tremendously. I love walking by the ocean and walking through the city. I love watching trashy reality television shows and reading beautiful poetry. And US magazine. I love to shop at Value Village and Goodwill and Target. Nowhere more expensive than that, because it bugs me to spend money on something if I think there's a possibility of finding it cheaper. I love singing and babies and cherry pie and black-eyed peas (the food, not the group) and all kinds of music and Disneyland and hot baths and tattoos and laughing. I love a lot. And I think I'm generally happy a lot.
I hope to share my love, and my happiness, and funny stories and crafts, on my blog.
