Good morning. Fall is in the air. Summer came and went. School is in full swing. We are well into our schedule and I finally feel like I can catch up on other areas of my life, like my blog!
Jett and Owen are growing at an amazing, fast forward, lightening speed! Owen turned 4 in September and Jett is going to turn 8 in a week! I can't believe it. I remember when Owen was born dreaming about the day when the boys would be 8 and 4. I thought that it was such a long way off and that those would be magical ages. Now, here we are! And it's magical. The boys are such great little kids. They are happy and pretty well adjusted. I know I'm painting a pretty picture, but believe me, we've worked really hard to achieve it! My whole goal in this moment in time is to create some pretty awesome human beings. They both love life and all that it offers. It's pretty neat to watch the world through the eyes of your kids. I'm really trying to make a conscience effort to let the boys show me everything about life while they can. While they still want me in it.
My journey into motherhood has been bumpy, but I'm happy to report that I finally feel settled and am enjoying the ride.
I also recently, started a new direct sales business called Stella and Dot http://www.stelladot.com/sites/ChristySHadland. I love it!! I'm having lots of fun with the jewelry and learning about running an online business. I know it's direct sales, and I never thought that I would find myself doing something like this. However, I really love the line and the company. They have a very different approach to the whole at-home-party-direct-sales-thing. They mail directly to the customer, so I never have to deal with inventory, returns or any of that mess. There isn't a "sales pitch" or "presentation" I love that!!!!! I love to wear jewelry, I love their product, so why not wear fabulous jewelry everyday, meet awesome women and go to parties! Sounds like heaven to me! (I'm such an over thinker and get heavied out by the messes of the world, that I need a creative outlet to be fancy, pretty, shallow, drink Champagne & eat cupcakes).
So that's a little of what been going on around here in the Hadland Household. I know I've been MIA again, but there has been so much "growing" going around here that I needed some space to just let it all happen.
I hope your having a great Fall and have a very safe and fun Halloween.
I'm posting my pancake recipe today in my recipe section of my blog. xoc
