I'm trying to post every day or at least more than once a week, I am starting to feel like I may be losing my blogging mojo and that saddens me. I could easily go a week or so without even thinking about my blog and the thought that I may actually stop blogging one day, just doesn't sit well with me.
This little blog of mine has been a huge part of my life since 2006, so many memories, happy moments, sad moments, pics of my children growing up etc., has been shared here and I would hate to see it all end.
But to be able to continue blogging I need to find something to blog about, get interested again, and I think daily features like this Five on Friday may just be what I need.
Anyway, I'm once again linking up with Amy over at Love Made my Home. Go on over and say hi if you get a chance :)
1. Missing my kids being little.
It's been a huge issue for me this past week, I don't know, but I just have been missing them being toddlers. Sometimes I see moms taking their little ones to the park to play and I miss those days. I miss pushing them around in a stroller or watching a cutesy cartoon with them. I actually wrote a blog post about it yesterday, you can check it out if you want.
2. Devouring documentaries
I tend to go through these phases where latch onto something and for a few weeks or months, that is all that I want to do. Movies, books, documentaries, historical events etc. Lately I've been devouring documentaries of any and all kind. Some of my latest watches have been Alcatraz, Hard Time, Escape from a Nazi Death Camp and Witch Hunt: A Century of Murder which is brilliant. You can watch the first part below:
3. Fall is in full force around here
The trees are changing, the leaves are falling and I have such a fun time finding evidence of this season all over the place.
The kids are both struggling a bit with the amount of work they have on their plates. My daughter is in 11th Grade and my son in 7th and it really is quite a big work load. I know they get frustrated at times, but I keep reminding them both that when college comes around it will be even worse so it's good to get some good experience now.
5. Adorable Candle Warmers
My husband bought me this candle warmer last weekend, he knows how much I love country looking things and chickens and barns. How absolutely perfect is this?
