MIA

i have soooooooo been missing blogging about my wonderful family! but i am midway into an intense business course through an AWESOME organization called women's economic ventures, and all my spare time must be spent in the homework and business planning activities that go along with it. currently i am delving deep, attempting to more narrowly define our style, our niche, research our target market and specific demographics, assess the feasibility of the business, and create a marketing plan. i have too many business ideas, but it is actually one of the better things to be plagued with. at least i am not suffering from the opposite problem! anyways, the class ends in may, at which point i will either get busier as we start this business for real, or we will put it on hold for awhile depending on what God will call us to for the summer, and i will hopefully have a bit more time to keep up with the blog. thank God that at least i know writing is one of my major callings, so it is a priority for me to do this. and of course my first calling at this time in my life is to be a committed wife and mother. family blogging is a part of that, as i am building family stories and weaving our history. i still read bits of my friends' stuff now and then and keep up the quotes and photos. i will see you all on the other side of may.

I emailed them and it is just a local thing in Santa Barbara but the lady emailed me some info up in Portland and some more stuff I can do via the internet. Sorry, Doris. . . . I don't think SB is where I'm suppose to be. I know that God can send me anywhere but I just don't have peace about living in such an expensive place. I'm not even 100% sure about Oregon. You may find me over in Austin, TX. You just never know. But I am hoping to make it down to SB for a visit. If so would you guys have a couch for me :)
