I'm Alive!

So it's been months... years....and butt loads of hours and days....but guess what?  I'M ALIVE!!!!  My bad for not keeping up with this wonderful virtual diary for the public...but so much has happened, that literally,  my life as a wifey has forbade me time to keep this blog updated. I am, with time, all caught up...and hopefully I will keep up.  Anywhos.....let me catch up, cliff notes style::

I have since had a little boy, named Camden.  Because of this little boy, I have become more responsible, and patient, and I have become one of those parents whose phones are infested with videos and pictures like so:

Random baby body part pictures of your little one that only you and your hubby can enjoy, but think everyone else will squeal just as much as you do....

Mommy and baby that it doesn't look so self absorbed....but yet you really want people to see how cute you are because your'e a mom.

So yeah....I'm a parent.  Never thought of me as a parent type, but turns out I love it!

Secondly, I am no longer residing in beautiful rainy England.  Meh.  Our time ran out, and were destined to move farther away...this time Asian style.  We are now residents of Japan.  Land of the rising sun, peace signs, and sushi galore.  

Although my tastebuds are loving life right now....I'm not so sure this part of the world is my cup of Tea.  I would much rather get a taste of Earl Grey rather than Brown Rice.  I mean, don't get me wrong, the landscapes are BEEE-U-TEE-FUL, the people are amazingly nice, and the culture is rich and inspiring....but like I said...I'm a more Earl Grey type of chick.  Just trying to make the best of what life has given us, which is the only thing to do with life.  Otherwise, I'd be the grumpiest most unpleasant person you could meet, that would curse the world whilst carrying huge signs condemning all people who are happy.  And, I mean, life is too short to live with that type of attitude.

But I must say, Japan is pretty quirky, and I learned to love all its quirkiness.  I mean, what other country would sell kid pants with the word, "Bitch," sewed on the pant leg, or ear plugs that looks like someone is growing out of your ear?  To them, that's normal, for me, that's pretty badass.

OK, so baby: check, Japan: check, Money making: here we go....

So, on top of being a mother, housewife, and having a social life, I decided that, that wasn't enough and that I would like to pursue my business a bit more whilst living over here.  So, Aimes Design has been resurrected and more of my time has been invested in creating something that allows me to create for others.

I love my business.  It makes me happy to see that my creations make other people happy, and their parties look pretty.  It's just an awesome feeling. And creating has always been very therapeutic for me.  It's a blessing.  A blessing that can stress me out when business gets busy, but still a blessing.  Can I show you what I have made?  If you don't, scroll down, cause I'm gonna post my shiz anyway , HA!

From Ninja parties... Milkaholic baby showers..... TMNT..... Willy Wonka.

I'm everywhere when it comes to orders....but I love it!

I kinda also became a bit of a Arts and crafts Bazaar whore while at it too.  Can't help myself.  I love makin paper!

So with my son, housewife duties, and money making was impossible to catch up on this blog biz over here.  Seriously, I'm hoping that I keep this up, it's tons of fun doing this, and I love having people see what kind of life us military wives living overseas live, no matter how hard or blessed it may be.  

So Cheers to life!  I'll see you soon!
