Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Going Private


Hey all, I am about to make our blog private. Don't worry...you still get to enjoy adorable pics of Austin and our endless home reno projects (2 underway currently that will be blogged about soon) but we are just limiting the access to friends and family...and friends of friends of friends! Since I post a lot of info on here about where we live, what we do and most importantly the journey of our little boy growing up...I just want to make sure not to divulge that info to the wrong people {insert mental image of creepy internet junkies doing bad things to good people}.

Space is limited so either email me (shannon.r.jex@gmail.com) or leave a comment on this post with your email address so I can add you to the approved list. I won't make it private for a few weeks to make sure and catch all of you that may not visit often.

And don't worry, if you are a friend of a friend or my sweet IO Metro staff that started following us by accident when we mentioned the Room Planner on a post...then come along for the journey too!! I would love to have all of you follow even if we have not met yet....just promise me you aren't a creepy internet junkie doing bad things to good people. :)

So send me your email so you can see more of this sweet face....
