Home is where MY heart is...

It's that time of year again.... CHA... the hustle and bustle of all things new in the scrapbook industry laced with the scurry and organization of manufacturers preparing for yet another big trade show :)

This year is a little different for me... although the stress still lingers, our family is now a part of this great event. Having my husband work side by side with me it is inevitable for the kids to hear a thing or two...and well give their opinions :) I used to be the one telling them about the industry... now it is a family affair :)

We are also in the process of buying a new home here in Colorado. It has been almost a year since we have been here... and we have loved every minute of it. We have sold our house in California, and found a beautiful home here in Colorado that we are now the proud owners.

So as you can see... it has been busy in the Hicks household...lots going on for all five of us but the investment is worth it, whether it be time, money or energy, working towards this goal together is a beautiful thing and worth the investment into our children :)

Since we are speaking of homes... here is a piece I created for a special friend... Moving into a new home... I am always in need of a reminder that HOME is where MY heart is... no matter how big or small your home, belongings or family is... your home is ALWAYS where you heart is... my heart is in my family, so where ever they are that is where my HOME is.... so grateful for this.
