I just got home from watching the movie Julie and Julia. What a great idea. I loved the concept behind this movie and, even though it was really long and slow moving in some parts, I thought it was inspirational and I'll tell you why. Here are two women that want to do better, be better, and make something of their lives, and after searching they find something they love and they follow it. That just speaks to me. I don't know about you, but I feel that way every day. I want to find the thing that makes my heart sing and follow it. I think that we can do that in all sorts of ways and for me it is not in cooking, but in creating things. I love to create. So for me, it is finding that thing each day that I can put myself into and make better. What is it for you? What makes you feel alive? I love that we can rediscover ourselves everyday and do the things that help us to become that person that we know we can be. What a great thought to end the day. Goodnight:)

Thanks for sharing this. I have had the best and worst summer this year. My kids are raising lambs again for the fair(s) and we have had the best times and the worst times, but I love being with them teaching and learning and even when Ashley gets me up at 5:30 to go running the lambs I hate every minute of it until it is all done and I realize that is the only time I got to spend with her alone for the day. We talk and sometimes she shares things that she would not share if the boys were around. They grow up so fast. I have had time this summer to realize how important they are to me. It has been so good. Thanks for sharing your family with us on your blog. Sugar misses Kira and wants to visit all the time. As soon as the fair stuff is over we will have to call. Sarah
