A New Journey and a Winner!

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today I am embarking on a new journey. Today is the first day that I will be home schooling my daughter Gia. Home Schooling has been something I have juggled back and forth in my mind and when I decided to ask the Lord to help me make the right decision, it led me to make the decision to home school. I do not know about many of you out there, but I just did not feel safe anymore sending my daughter off to school. A school that continues to leave their main doors UNlocked! After the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings took place, a piece of my heart broke and went out to all those parents and that is when the lightbulb went off in my head that I needed to pull my daughter out of school. I feel completely comfortable with this decision and look forward to teaching my daughter and watching her excel and grow.... with my help. Each day that I get to spend with her is a blessing! So please keep me in prayer that I am able to succeed in this journey with Gia and I plan on documenting and taking photos to scrapbook. This is definitely a big change for the both of us and we often forget to scrap our every day life versus the events that take place (Holidays, birthdays, etc). It's time to reflect on the small things in life and capture and journal those things, as those small things are actually huge. =)
I want to take the time to say THANK YOU  to everyone who has left me sweet comments on my blog makeover and for taking the time to follow me here, on pinterest and for stopping by Kellie's blog and following her. It truly made me realize that I have some wonderful friends! =)
So with that being said, lets get on to the winner of my mystery bag & Ac Moore's gift card giveaway! generated a sweet comment left by.....
