Return To Yourself

Your only constant is that you are you, that you have a core of truth within you and a path to walk, and if you allow your core of truth to tell you which fork in the road to take, if you allow that internal compass to tell you which mountain to climb, then you will do well indeed and have a fulfilling, interesting life. ........ You are everything you need to be, just as you are, right now. You are the center of your own life. You are the beacon that shines and shows the way. Be glad when others walk beside you, enjoy their company, connect as closely and deeply as you can, but always, always, shine your own light and walk your own path and allow them to do the same.

Shine out and show who you are, so that people who are looking for someone exactly like you can find you, do not allow setbacks or even major betrayals to dampen your shine and your being!

Happy Birthday Stella Jane!

Miss Stella turned 2 years old today. I can hardly believe how fast she is growing. She was very excited about all of her presents and especially loved her baby from her mama and her book from her daddy. I decided that I wanted to make her birthday cake this year and I think it turned out great. A special thanks to my friend Natalie for coming over to help me out! I think it turned out so cute!!

Its been a fun few weeks of canning! I'm not sure why i love it so much - but I do! Me and Natalie and Ashley have had our aprons on and water boiling. Here is what we've each canned so far.

10 jars Raspberry Jam
15 jars Apricot Jam
12 Quarts Salsa - 12 more to can on Saturday
10 Quarts Peaches - 16 more to can on Saturday

I'm hoping to find time to can a total of 40 quarts of peaches, and I'm going to try my hand at canning tomatoes next week. Any other suggestions on what I should be canning?
