I am headed from South Florida to South Dakota for a family wedding. And I don’t have my crochet hook, knitting needles or a skein of yarn with me. 😮I can’t tell you the last time that has happened...years. My goal during travel time of this trip as my wonderful husband is back with my kiddos in Florida is 2020 prep and read Capital Gaines.
My 2019 word was Boundless. I can’t believe that I sit here thinking about 2020. A start of a new decade...do you remember approaching the year 2000? I feel like it was yesterday? And the whole Y2K scare☺️ Funny to think at how far life, technology and society has come in that time.
I feel that my word boundless has represented my year appropriately. Personally, my husband and I sold our home we built in Ankeny, Iowa this summer, along with everything that we own. We had a goal to focus on family, show our kids the U.S. and show them that you can do anything you put your mind to. It’s not that we didn’t love where we were at, we lived in an amazing suburb of Des Moines, our kids went to fantastic schools, we established life long friendships that we cherish greatly and we grew our family in that town. But the hustle of everyday, cold weather and being away from each other as my husband traveled really made us want to simplify life TOGETHER.
So in June set out...and haven’t looked back. Our kids imaginations have blossomed, they are best friends with each other, we have slow mornings that we cherish, they have experienced and been to so many places in their short lifetime than I have in my 34 years. We are boundless... b.e.happe is approaching year 4 come February. From a mom of three who taught herself to crochet from the internet in 2016 to a mom running a business in a 350 sq ft RV with 8 other females on her team. Not only do we sell online but have expanded to wholesale and now popping up in small boutiques. We have expanded our giving to hospitals across the country as our family travels. We are boundless... I have my potential 2020 words but have not nailed one down yet. But when I do I will share. What has 2019 taught you?
