Yeah, I wanted a fairy tale wedding. I got it for sure…but you know the best part? Even though it takes work (and lots of it sometimes) my marriage has turned out to be pretty fairy tale-esque. I have a husband who adores and supports me, and children who are great, well-behaved kids. So yeah, happily ever after does happen – the fairy tales just forgot to mention that you must earn it! 🙂
Speaking of fairy tales. I am writing that style for the NaNoWriMo contest, and it started getting a little too Disney fluffish for my tastes. So I darkened it during some word sprints last night. It’s now going in the direction I orginally wanted. Always intimidating, because my tendency is to write fluffy, happy-ever-after-no-work-needed stories.
But real life isn’t like that and I am actually starting to like making my characters suffer. Sadistic I know.
So I took a break on the 30 Day book list, but I am not finished with it yet. Just have a lot on my plate right now and need to prioritize.
Played with play-doh today and Bella loved it when I made her a castle, a princess, and her knight. The castle turned into a basketball hoop, and she’s still playing with the steadily drying dough. I love seeing her smile. One of my favorite things. She is making her prince and princess dance to the Christmas music I have playing right now…
I am thankful for being a mother!
