Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

Holiday Cards

I ordered holiday cards. Already. Usually, I'm frantically throwing together a card right around Black Friday to catch a deal on photo sites and make sure I'm getting the cards in time to mail out. 

This year, my neighbor mentioned she had ordered her cards by Halloween, which prompted me to start thinking. Maybe I don't have to stress myself out 3 weeks before Christmas. Maybe, I can plan ahead. Maybe, I can take my time and get it all done now. 

So I did. There was still the requisite gnashing of teeth over which site to use, several projects started with various layouts of photos, and the final version that typically ends in "good enough!"
