Thank you! Have we told you lately how awesome you are? Whether you are just joining us or have been with us from the beginning – thank you! We appreciate your visits, comments, likes and shares.
I get a little more reflective at this time of year. This time of year has been a cycle of amazing highs and deep lows.
Three years ago, Pauline and I were still growing Club Chica Circle and we were blindsiding by a summer in the hospital and rehab struggling to understand when my tween would be able to walk again. (Good news story – Miranda is 100%+ better.)
Last year, our readers rallied to vote for our blog for “Freshest Blog of 2013” at SocialLuxe Lounge. Our tweens graduated elementary school and moved one step closer to teendom.
This month, we became a 2014 Crafty Award Finalist for Cake in a Can:
But now we are blindsided by our other tween’s hospital visit for a broken wrist and road rash on all limbs. Maggie will now be sporting an orange cast for the summer.
Have we told you yet how awesome you are? We love that you stop by and visit our crafty circle.
