Learning new things

I don't know why, but recently I have had many new interests arise. I bought an old canner at a yard sale this winter and when the summer came I canned my first veggies. Now it seems I can't get enough of it. I have 4 full shelves of canned goods in my garage and all I can think of it what more I can do.
Another hobby that sparked my interest was soap making. I just did my first batch yesterday after months of collecting my ingredients. It was exciting to finally carry out my interest. There are other things as well that I just all of the sudden took up such as organic gardening and nutrition.
I wonder if it comes with age or if I'm finally finding my niche- or maybe both? I enjoy finding a topic, doing the research and then carrying out the procedure. Who knows what could come of it. For now it just means a stocked pantry and clean, healthy bodies for myself & family.

My First Blog

I'm starting this blog because, as I get older, I realize that life stages change so fast. Before I know it my kids will be in school and I'll be headed for the next chapter. As of right now, Cameron is 3, Christian is 1, and my life is so blessed. I want to remember these times of making sippy cups and changing diapers. I never want to forget how Cameron makes a sword out of anything and the first thing that Christian does in the morning is look for his brother and start waving his chubby little hand to say "Hi" to him. Right now Cameron is so curious about everything. He loves to help and he asks a million questions. He's always laughing and fluttering around like a little butterfly looking for his next adventure. He is the most happy-go-lucky person I know and has no trouble being honest, even when it will get himself in trouble. He is wonderful. Christian cannot be held long enough. He snuggles and hugs and kisses. He giggles at anything Cameron does and refuses to eat baby food- although he has only 4 teeth. His eyes glow bright blue and everyone thinks he's a girl because he's so beautiful. I am so happy to be married to a great guy and have my two boys. I never want these days to end.
