A Year In The Life of Abby

She'll knock you out with the cute. Boom. Flat on your butt.

Okay, so I’m a tad bit late in getting a project finished. Shocking I know with the amount of crafting, cooking/baking, and DIY’ing that I do. Pinterest, for example, is a fantastical place to be inspired and get ideas for all of the aforementioned.

Except at the rate that I (and all others it would seem) am “pinning,” the reality of making all of those Pins happen? Doing all those projects? Not happening. I would much rather waste my time in the dark recesses of video editing; cutting and snipping and gathering and knitting together a fabric of show-stopping magnificence.When I say “show-stopping magnificence,” this is not to be attributed with my mad video editing skillz. Not in the least! I’m referring, rather, to the little people that I have born. The ones who my make my everyday a huge event. It’s in their company that I want to savour every moment in the present and capture enough memories to savour when I’m old and grey. To share with them and their children in the years to come. To share with their friends, g-rents, extended family all other adoring fans who aren’t lucky enough to savour the everyday.

It’s important to build up all of the gooey, golden moments and treasure them like the huge shining beams of awesome that they are. It’s what helps us (me anyways), get through the less than savoury moments of which there are a plenty. I’ve posted the video on my personal blog today. This was a project that I had meant to publish in honour of Abby’s 1st birthday. So while I may be a couple of months late, who’s really counting? Surely, not she.
