I'm a blogger!
I never imagined I would be saying that. I do not have any plans for my blog other than posting my thoughts from time2time and showing some of my stamp work. I am always amazed by others creativity and hope I may inspire others.

The Tilly Invitational is this weekend. We have made it an annual event to ship the kiddos off to grandma's, while we golf. I love my children dearly and could not imagine life without them, but also enjoy this one weekend of the summer where I can be irresponible and let loose. I believe we get lost in the wants and needs of our children and forget that it began with just the 2 of us. We have to book this weekend a year ahead of time, so in doing that it can end up being bad planning, which is the case this year. Caleb will be leaving Sunday afternoon for Kansas City with his youth group. As much as I wanted to cancel golf and spend the weekend with Caleb I also realize you can not cram all your love into one weekend. You have to live it and say it daily! We do that in the Tilstra house and so by doing that we know without a doubt that we are loved by each other more than anything! The kids will bond with their grandparents and my sister and her family and Brian and I will also get to bond and on Sunday when we gather again as a family we will have a renewed love for one another.
God is Good all the time, all the time God is Good!
