I'm back from a long blogging vacation lets see what I've been up too

Oh boy it's been a while. I am sure that I wasn't missed much since there are so many great and devoted blogger out there.

It's been a while and there have been many reasons for my little (scratch that long) disappearance.

For one my business has me so busy making sure all orders get out that I really don't have much time for anything else besides my number one job, being a mother and wife.

Recently my youngest daughter was also diagnosed as Autistic and it just so happens that she is on the lower scale which means she is a low functioning autistic. Now just like I wrote when I found out our oldest daughter was diagnosed with high functioning Autism, this label does not define her. She is still a sweet spirited and adorable little girl and nothing will change the love I carry in my heart for her. It's been a while since, she has 4 different kinds of therapy (speech, behavioral, occupational and a second speech and she is in the UC Davis mind institutes PATH study for infants with Autism. She is starting all these classes and therapies and I know that she will just continue to blossom each and ever day and the more time I can devote to her and her learning to more everyone else will be able to see a difference. It has been hard and stressful creating long days and even longer nights but I know that my husband and I were meant to have these amazing children and each day we teach them, in reality they teach us more about life everyday.

For a time my husbands health wasn't the the best and it sent us to the er and many doctors. He is much better now and has lost 23 pound, eating healthy and stabilized.

Then of course launching this new line of high end leather products took a lot of time designing, patterning and and learning the leather craft business. I have a few products right now up on my websites but its just the beginning. What I am working on now is going to be amazing!

Oh and I re dyed my hair so now I am a burgundy brunette...

People are more than what they seem

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
Oh Monday and your mounds of weekend fun now piled messy everywhere

People are more than an event a moment in time
People are not a single fight.
People are not a nasty sentence
People are messy and choose to show a side sometimes not always good. 
People are more than moments.
Remember most people you might never Truly know.

and that is the baby

You may not know their battles, there own fight with in themselves
to this I say show kindness
For one day you might say something you wish 
you didn't, you might share an unkind side of yourself
and you will wish someone was kind to you 
because kindness might be exactly 
What they need.

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

To live a life of abundant kindness
could be the greatest legacy you could ever hope to leave.
In our simple lives and dirty world 
fight against with abundant kindness
Shock everyone and infect them with your light of abundant kindness.

...Just read it.

We are the authors of our lives and while people evolve and adapt and share pages of themselves with others, that light we carry can either be drained or you can shine so bright that those around you bask in your glow. These authors run their lives trying to catch, steal or find it. That glow, that love affair with life mostly forgetting. We are the authors of our lives.

Raw Honesty

Complete honesty
raw, real and genuine
How raw?
Is too raw?
No makeup,
wired up hair
Mismatched socks
cleaning solution and baby puke
I am this
Raw mother
I find myself saying everything my mother use too
When I was a child.
Childhood is the rawest moments of your life
It is real and unreal
It is both
I honestly wish I knew peter pan
but don't we all
Now that is real honesty
Raw and real
We are all searching for the un-real though
chasing what is not here
When whats here
is a moment.
a choice
This exact moment is what is only real.
What I am choosing in this moment
is real and raw
writing, evolving my tounge
over the pile of reality and bills to pay
is a real choice
though a real choice is moving on
and passing
Peter Pan down
to my own children.
That is time's raw reality.

Defining Sucess

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App 
{p.s. I dyed my hair again}

 I have been thinking a lot about Success. My success. The shops success.
What does it all mean? What is success?

Success is this thing we are all chasing after and searching for. All of us trying to figure it all out in this big world. Find our fit in society and always wondering how big that "fit" it.

How do I define success and much do I believe in myself to get there. Am I capable of big success? Do I want that? To be successful in my career, a big success.

Defining success is what my mind keeps coming back too. It's just to complex to define in a sentence  It might take a book to define this one word. I think though, that success is to each it's own. Success is reaching a point in which you are happy but consistently growing in it.

My success mean defying what I think I am capable of and stretching it out. Pushing myself, pushing my confidence and believing in self-faith.

My thought for the day. 

I will no longer be searching for success. No, Today I will Define it. 

Today I will relish in the possibilities I am creating. I will plan with care and dive into the idea that my dreams may scare me just a bit. They might be bigger that I am, but change and drive will lead me. My passion will fuel this hunger for growth and success. 

Today I will be only passionately curious and working harder than ever before to get there. Where ever success is, that is were I will be going.

Excerpted from me

Excerpt from my Diary.


"...If nothing else, I hope you know that I love you with every ounce of my being. I hope you realize your importance not only to me but to everyone who has been lucky enough to know you. I hope you know that when you're feeling down I have only ever strived for your happiness. I hope you remember that no matter what, I am HERE for you and fully intend on staying in your life for quite some time. I hope you recognize the fact that I appreciate and adore you without restraints and that this will never change.

Happy new year!

Living with out a computer for 2 weeks was so hard for me, but I am finally up and running!
I sure missed writing. So much so that I started journaling again. It is amazing how sappy I can get with pen to paper. My mind just explodes with thoughts and passion and feeling. 
I might even share a poem or two here and there. 

This past month seems to have flown by so fast I didn't even know what was going on. Prepping for Christmas made the holidays pass by so fast. Isn't it amazing how when we were kids we time seemed to stand still and a day felt like a week and a week felt like a month and a year felt like forever! Now a days I can't seem to find the "pause" button. 

Anyone else feel like that?

I am so amazed that 2012 is already over and 2013 is a fresh start and exciting new beginning. I know  that  this year will hold new and exciting possibilities and that we at a family unit have only begun. The life we want, the American dream is totally in our reach. Its just up to us to power that drive and get there. 

I know that life is now. 
Enjoy it. Share it. Love every amazing moment. Even the terrible moments allow us to know what good moment s feel like. Know that little moments are really the big ones. 
Expand love and lose dissatisfaction and hurt. 
Life a balanced and whole life, all the while knowing that it may not be perfect ever, but creating a version of perfect is what creating this journey is all about. 
My challenges this year will be to let go of things I can not change.
This year I will not have a list of the normal goals. Like losing more weight (even though I do want too). I will not list "stress less" and I will not have a unrealistic bucket list. 
This year will be simple. 
Love life. Soak up the moments. Cherish each of these childrens' young life memories. Grow my business and work hard everyday. 
Strive to be healthy with some "free-bee" days. 
Surround yourself with family for the core of ourselves are with in them. 
Be open and available for new people in our lives. 

What are your goals this year?

Enjoy some pictures of my kids opening presents. There are just a few today.
