Remembering of 9/11

Today, Jacob and I, have started a tradition that we plan to take part in every year on september 11. We are going to send a special thanks to our american heros and many others in our community.  Our hope is that no one will forget. Instead of focusing on the hate that brought on those events, we will remember how our nation came together and stood tall as a very strong entity.

This year we chose to send thanks to our local fire department. I really got lucky to have Daves family donate merchandise from their paving business In Line Paving. Not bad right??

I'm really hoping this act of kindness will be a tradition my kids will pass along to their children.

Did anyone else do anything for 9/11?? I'd love to hear.  Jacob is already taking notes for next year.

Just a quick thanks....

I want to send a big thank you to all my new followers!!! I've had alot of traffic to my blog since my recent link ups. I thank you sooooooo much!!!! I feel extremely encouraged by all my readers and fellow bloggers.

I would like to apologize for my improper post; if you're like me,i only like posts with pictures. We're currently rearranging the living room and we need to reroute wiring for the satellite and internet. I'm really loving our new furniture layout and I can't wait to share my first craigs list purchase; but until I can get the man to complete all the dirty work (I'm just kidding,i just need him to tell me what to do) our computer is going to be out of commission.

I have lots of projects in the work; living room layout, painted kids room, and my next decluttering project.  Hopefully, by next week everything will be complete and I can share our progress.

But until then thank you all so very very much!!
