Now for some of my thoughts:

Crazy sisters!

Meet Jess - my sister! She is 7 years younger than me, but you wouldn't guess that. We get along so well, and we are kind of like twins. She has been living here with us for 5 weeks and let me tell you, it has been the best 5 weeks! She left today to go back up to Utah State for her final year of college. I can tell you I am so proud of her, but I am so sad that she is gone.

Having fun at the park!

She taught me how to laugh more and to not take everything in life so seriously. She showed me that cooking can be fun. She showed me how you can find humor in any movie - I mean any movie - its been such a blessing to have her with us. I miss her already!

First day of School

The school year is back in full swing and full days are here! My daughter was a little nervous about that, but she came home the first day from school telling me that school wasn't long enough. She is so grown up now, time really does fly - but I am so grateful for each moment.

My little boy turns 3!

So this little guy just turned 3! He is so grown up! His birthday is the same day as our business anniversary. Hard to believe it has been 3 years since we packed our bags and moved our family 300 miles away to Saint George. We moved 4 days after I gave birth and my first memory of moving into our home was a very large bug scurrying across the floor in the empty house. I looked at Clint in disgust and said "that's a cockroach, isn't it?" He told me not to worry about it and that it wasn't a cockroach - I had never seen one before - anyway, I learned real fast that the bug guy is my best friend and it was a cockroach and that Saint George is an amazing place to live. We plan on being here for a very long time.

So, in the past three years - Clint and I have learned to work together and be home together all the time. We have learned that hard work and persevering makes it possible to live out your dreams. We also learned that you need to keep your personal life and business life separate and that we need to date to keep the romance alive (another reason we are going to miss Jess, our built in babysitter!)

So, summer is pretty much over - life continues to go on, (reality will always be reality) kids grow up way too fast, but I will be focusing on enjoying the journey!

Well, if you are still reading this I wanted to let everyone know that I started a Flickr account and I would love it if you posted pictures of your quilts that you have made using Green Fairy Quilt patterns here.

Also - I am working on a little something that I am stumped on so I need your help. Okay - here it goes, just ask me what you would like to know about long arm quilting - leave a comment and that will help me out. I won't be able to answer these questions right away, but you will see the results of these questions at some point in the future!
