A New Baby in the Family!

Baby Ben

Baby Ben ❤

Back in my studio today for the first time since Tuesday. I got the call in the afternoon. My middle son called to let me know they were going to induce my DIL soon. They had enough time to run home, pick up their bags and get back to the hospital. After MANY (about 18 total) hours, my first grandson was born at 1:22pm on Wednesday, January 18th, weighing 6 lbs 7.7 oz and measuring 19.5″.

Mama, baby and daddy are all healthy and happy, if not completely exhausted! They came home from the hospital yesterday evening. It’s been all I can do to restrain myself and let them have their rest. My son and his girlfriend moved in with us in December so we could help each other out. My biggest worry has been that I don’t want to be a pain in the you know what about being grandma and in the same house!

I could see from their faces when they came home yesterday evening, they were so tired. I did get to hold the sweetie pie this morning, so my day has already been perfect. He is the most beautiful, peaceful, sweet little munchkin! My little Benny Bean! I’ve always known it would be awesome to be a grandma, but there is so much more to it! It’s completely indescribable. I feel like my heart could explode with all the love! I so look forward to seeing this little guy grow up. I think I must have been in shock for the first couple of days, I haven’t cried until this moment right now, loading photos of the newest member of the family. It’s such an amazing moment in my life and the lives of my family. I’m beyond grateful. ❤

Happy New Year!

2012 is almost behind us! It’s been a wonderful year and I hope everyone has an even better year in 2013! Lots of exciting stuff coming up for me and my sweetie in the coming months. I promise to get back to blogging more regularly in the coming weeks. More music, art, love and joy coming soon! Until then, enjoy your family and friends and never take anything or anyone for granted. Be grateful for all the blessings and learn from the bad which is really just lessons/blessings in disguise! I am so very grateful for the good, the bad and everything in between. Nothing more exciting than a New Year ahead, a fresh slate to start over at the beginning! Happy New Year everyone!

The End Draws Near….

The end of the year that is! What? Did you think this post was going to be all about the end of the world? LOL. Honestly, I don’t believe all that mumbo jumbo about the end of the Mayan calendar being the end of the world! I DO however believe there is a shift coming, a shift in consciousness, a shift in the way people act, feel and think. I can feel it coming, the “Age of Aquarius”. It’s not something that will come on a specific DAY, it has been slowly coming over decades and will continue to slowly shift over the coming decades. Who REALLY knows the future anyway? Not I! I won’t claim any special knowledge, all I can really say is that I FEEL it. I FEEL the love growing, I FEEL the change in the air!

As far as my personal and professional life goes, there is a LOT of change coming. I have already experienced TONS of change in this past year and it will continue into 2013. I haven’t figured it all out just yet, but I promise to keep you all informed. I do have to apologize for the LONG gap in between posts this last month or so. Honestly, I cannot even remember the last time I wrote a blog post. It’s been way TOO LONG!

December is a crazy month for us this year. On top of Christmas and all the usual busyness that comes with the holidays, our oldest son is getting married on December 29th! We have agreed to help with a few things, which translates to, I am baking the wedding cake/s! Plus, we have some shopping to do for the groom and his best men (his two younger brothers) for the clothes they will be wearing for the wedding.

This week is busy because my husband and I are working on recording a Christmas song, “Silent Night”, to release in time for this Christmas. Our folk group, New Mexico Sunshine, is getting ready to play a show at our local main library for their “lunchtime at the library” series on 12/12/12 at 12:00 noon.

Also, I am offering 25% off ALL purchases in my Etsy shop until This Friday, Nov. 30th. Just enter the coupon code: cybermonday when you check out.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a crazy busy month! I hope to get back to some semblance of a normal routine after the New Year. If I don’t get back here before that, may you all have a Happy Holidays (no matter what holiday you celebrate) and a very happy New Year!
