Life. Is. Good.

Life is what you make of it.  I truly believe that.  It’s all about choices.  Following your passion.  Being true to your values.  Not being afraid to admit your mistakes.  Rising to the occasion.  Being faithful.  Offering and accepting forgiveness.  Having hope.  Trusting in a higher power.  Laughing out loud often.  Giving lots of hugs.  Celebrating friendships.  And successes.

And with each passing year of my life, I learn these lessons a little more deeply.  Understand them more clearly.  Find peace in who God created me to be.  And not worrying about what I’m not.  Just loving what I am.

2011 is going to be an exciting year.  I’m finding my feet.  Enjoying the journey.  Celebrating the successes.  Small and all.

There are handful of exciting things that I have dreamed about for years.  Watching dreams come to reality is an amazing, amazing thing.  I’m so excited to share with you one of these exciting things coming on the horizon for our family.

I’m going to be working on a new show for PBS called It’s Sew Easy. {insert joyous laughter and hugs here!}

In December, I went for a screen test and had so much fun!  I’m really looking forward to working with the crew and the other experts on the show.  I have NEVER done anything like this in my life – and it is SO much fun thinking about doing something new!  Meeting new people, finding new challenges, learning and sharing.

How cool is this?  YOU could be on the show!  BurdaStyle members can enter the competition to be chosen to do a guest spot on the show!  Go check it out and read all about how you can hook up with Burda and join in on the contest!

The show will be broadcast nationally across the US on PBS.  We begin taping in March and I’ll have many more details to come with great links for the show and projects and more from It’s Sew Easy. {eeeee!!! so excited!}
