Fum Friday

FUN FRIDAY! F is for FAMILY. What do you love about your family? what do you dislike about your family? Your family or extended? U is for UNEXPECTED. What is something unexpected that has ever happened to you? N is for NATURE. What is it, in nature, that you absolutely love? Anything that just make you reel in awe of God's creation?

Family- I love my family so much! They are my world. We are very close. I love how close my sibling and I are...I love how close my mom and I are. My children absolutely adore my dad! Their cousins are more like brother and sister. I love my childre
n more than life itself. My husband and I are the best of friends.! I could not ask for a better family! Some of the things I don't like about my family is that they can be very opinionated and nosey! Other than that we are cool beans!

Unexpected- One of the most unexpected things that I happened to me in my life was finding SCRAPBOOKING! It was totally unexpected. My daughter was just a little baby. I was reading an issue of Parents magazine, and was blown away by an article on Memory Booking. I was so intrigued, I ran to Michaels in search of Memory booking material. I bought about 5 different kits and came home lost! I was overwhelmed. I called Michaels to find if they offered any classes and low and behold, I found out that they had a 3 day class! The rest is history. I have met so many wonderful people that enjoy the same hobby as I do. I have experienced such wonderful things. I dare say, it has made me a better and well-rounded individual. I am so passionate about my hobby. I live, eat, and sleep scrapbooking. I don't know where I would be, hadn't I found this WONDERFUL hobby. It allowed me to tap in to my inner child and my creative side! I love it!

Nature- Having grown up with my grandmother who is Native American, I have a great appreciation for nature. I love the smell of grass, walking on nature trails, swimming in Lake Michigan, gazing at the stars. I am a true rugged outdoorsy girl. One of the most, wonderful things, is going out on my moms pier overlooking the lake, and watching the ducks. It is so soothing to me. Watching the long neck cranes come down and nourish their bodies. Watching the rabbits frolick and play. Its awesome! Of all things, I love autumn, I love the colorfulness of it! Watching the trees turn colors, the wind has a different feel, the smell of Autumn is so different. It is my most favorite time of the year!

Until next time..... Dana
