Sunny's Smile

Look at what we found in the woods! So fun, smiles on trees and logs all along the path. 
(Do you suppose that this means nature is smiling back at us? ;) 

It has been way too long my friends! I have never been away from this space for such a long period of time. To be honest I'm feeling nervous, or perhaps hesitant, coming back. Or, maybe I am just feeling so far behind in my posts that I wonder if I will ever catch up and be able to share all that I want to share. There is also a small part of me that wonders if there is anybody even checking in here anymore. I chuckle as I write that, but it's a nervous chuckle. I feel a bit like I am writing to myself...but that's not it of course, I'm writing to S. What I write and what I post is always for S. So I am here now and I will catch up slowly I suppose. I hope no one minds hearing about our summer gone by, as now it is autumn and things are slowing down more. My hope is to find myself cozied up in front of the computer with coffee, tea or hot apple cider in the next weeks to come, pounding away on my keyboard. I will leave it at that for now I guess. I have been busy. I of course missed posting about S starting kindergarten and how much she is loving school, her friends, and her new found freedom away from her mama for a few hours a week (gulp.) I have some cute pictures of her first day of school...plus her school photo just came back! So many firsts for her, and for me! I now get mama time 2 to 3 days a week for the first time in 5 years and I can't even begin to tell you how good that feels. I have been going for long walks as soon as I drop her off at school and they have been wonderful!! Truth is, the only reason I have not been posting is because my computer has been running painfully slow for months and I dread even trying to get on in fear of it locking up and I loose every I have been working on. Posting pictures I have found is almost next to impossible. One (or two) at time for now I'm afraid. The hubby worked on fixing it up while I was out the other day (what a pleasant surprise!) but I have noticed that it is already locking up again. I know that it is either a virus or the fact that it needs updating, but unfortunately, we haven't had the extra money for such luxuries as fixing my computer. That's another story though, I guess. I hope that this post finds all of you well and enjoying life! I never really thought that I had a favorite season, but oh how I have come to realize how very much I love autumn and all that it has to offer!! Enjoy my friends....I hope the warm sun is shininng on your face (and hearts) today. :)
