Just a note to let you know that I've got the Holiday/Seasons blog up and running. I will be posting tips on how to prepare for the holidays and Christmas (especially gift giving) so that we won't be hit especially hard in the bank account when December rolls around. Please feel free to visit at frugalluxuriesseasons.blogspot.com. I'm still working out some of the kinks on both blogs, but eventually there will be lots of great ideas from the book, photos and FRESH IDEAS galore! I'm really excited to share them with you, but I'm doing these blogs around my life...which includes (number one) taking care of my family. Included is:
- our youngest daughter Rosie (she just started her Junior year of high school a few weeks ago - our older two children have left the nest)
- my best friend and husband, Mike
- we all help a lot with Mike's mom who will be 87 in a few months
- my dad, who is doing well, thank Heaven. Sadly, we lost my mom to complications of Multiple Sclerosis two years ago in October.
So much of the reason I haven't been doing any fresh books or "career building" during the past several years is that I dearly wanted to spend time with my family while I had the chance. Looking back, I have absolutely no regrets regarding that decision. I know I've said it many times before but, it's worth repeating...
"...remember what is truly of value in our lives--
our time, our loved ones, our inner sense of prosperity."
As is my way, I do digress. Thank you for visiting and please look for our holiday posts on the ....Seasons blog if you think they might help you or someone you know.
Warmly, Tracey and Family
