I actually made something...it's been a while

So this past week has not been the best for me. I have been super negative and stressed out. Yesterday morning I woke up and made myself make something and anything because it has just been way too long. So I did. It was nothing special or super artsy. I made a mini tag book with clothing tags I have been saving and I wrote the lyrics to "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz in it. I got the idea from a similar thing I saw over here.

Last night, I had a family game night with my family and Cooper's family. (Ridiculous I know.) What teenagers ask their parents to join them on date night? Well, we did it anyway. We had a pretty heated game of Apples to Apples. It was a lot of fun, I have to admit. It was also refreshing to just do something as a group and talk and joke around.

I have some good news coming up in a later post and possibly a giveaway. I'm not sure yet, but I'd say there is a pretty good chance. The news has something to do with this and this and this and these.

P.S. My mom told me "You can't reach for all the stars at once." I think this is pretty good advice so you may want to take it into consideration whenever you are feeling stressed out.
