Change at Hickory Hollow

It's Me!
Can you believe it!
Gone from blogging for almost 2 years.

But, I ran across a blog and saw that Hickory Hollow was still on their sidebar.
I realized that I have really missed blogging.

With time, comes many changes...
New Cottage Herb & Flower Garden
New Victorian Back Porch
New Pets
New furniture
New job!
My fondest wish is to blog once a week.
You see, I work full time now.
I have for almost a year and a half.
Not just any ole job.
I teach.
Wonderful 4th graders!
Was it hard for this stay-at-home mom to go back to work full-time?
Oh my goodness yes!
Do I miss staying at home?
Oh my goodness yes!
I feel God's hand guiding me to the classroom.
I know this is where He wants me to be.
So I pray to accept my new circumstances.
I still have to live in my own little world, though
the world of Hickory Hollow.
Where I capture moments
that make my heart sing.
I see much more sorrow & struggle.
So I feel the need, now more than ever,
to find kindness, beauty and goodness.
So I hope you will join me on my new journey,
Hickory Hollow

I'm coming back home!

Welcome back! You just popped up in my blog roll like you were never gone. I work full time also and it's hard to blog regularly, once a week is a good goal. I'm excited to see what is new with you. Take care!

Yay Jill! So glad you are back! I missed you, too. :) Wish you could be my kiddo's 4th grade teacher...I know you are right at home in the classroom again.

I was so excited to see your name pop up... I ran across your blog during the years you were on break, and I so wished for more posts. Do you still have your sweet chickens? I am sure your classrooms amazing. I am a teacher, too... High school language arts. It's great to know I can look forward to a post every so often. We have Friendly Village dished from my grandmothers. I love that pattern. Love your flair and excitement.

Had to backtrack and see what you've been up to. :)

Don't you just love 4th grade? I teach 4th and 5th grade mild special education. We can swap stories...or ideas.
