Taking Stock April

Sharing the candle duties with his sister on his 15th birthday. (Note Jess and my awesome cake skills)

It’s time to take stock again.  It’s such a great thing to do and I love it when I see others doing the same.  I really love reading about their hopes and wishes and what they are doing right now.  It’s so very interesting to me.  It love that it makes me stop and think about where I’m at, where I want to be, am I progessing, or am I stuck?  I think it’s the latter most of the time.  But nevertheless, it’s such a good practice and I want to continue with it.

I’ve also been asked/nominated by the lovely Tracie, to do a 5 Photos 5 Stories Challenge which I have promised to do and will follow up with later today.  It seems easy and then I look at my photos and don’t know which to choose.  Gahhhh!    Anyhoo, photo 1 shall appear later today.  I’m hope I’m not too late.

Speaking of late I have some links at the end I’ve been hanging onto for weeks that you have probably seen a thousand and one times.  I hope you find something interesting.

Have a lovely day and if you have taken the time to pop by and visit, thank you sooo much. xo
