As 2017 comes crashing to an end, I realize what an exhausting year it was for me.  I started my Kimono business and it overwhelmed me.  It took away pieces of time I won't get back.

I still managed to get a new floor done in the farmhouse, spend lots of time with my grand darlings, work on the Dog Rescue, but damn, I am tired.

As I reflect 2017, I am grateful for the one thing I did not let go by.  HUGS!  We raised our son to be a hugger, he is raising his kids to be huggers.  I don't know if anyone realizes what an amazing thing a hug is.  I don't mean the quick pat on the back hug, I mean the , as our little Sebastian says,    "Pop your head off" hug.  When you hold someone and all of the love vibrates from you body to theirs.

That is something I will not let go by.  There is always time to hug, my husband, my son, my daughter-in-law, our babies, everyone I love will always get a HUG.

I am still going to work on my Kimono business but I am managing my time better for 2018.  No sewing after April 1st.  Living in Canada it is usually still cold until then so that is when I will work in the studio.

No matter how busy and overwhelming 2017 was I am blessed.  I am blessed with a strong, healthy, loving family, good friends and loving animals.  

So I hope you all have a HAPPY NEW YEAR and HUG SOMEBODY!
