Welcome to my fresh start...

This is Sam!
I bought sam at the flea market
I spent $5 on him,
but the person who sold him
suspected there was value he did not see!
I was beyond thrilled!
Immediatly I knew Sam represented something bigger then it seemed!

Welcome to my home..
welcome to my life...
welcome to my fresh start!

Sam is the first Item bought,,
for the first home the children and I
have ever lived alone in..
from start to finish...
the first home I have ever been responsible for..
the breadwinner within!

Sam is the start...
and yet there is so much more that shall follow
I know there will be moments that all will seem lost..
and I know when climbing out a hole
you sometimes fall back in..

But, its a start!
and a good one...

so welcome to my life...
take your shoes off..
get comfortable..
stay as long as you like!
I am not going anywhere...
and thats quite alright with me!


  1. I bought a Sam, too... except he's living and breathing and his name is Sundance :). But he was definitely my fresh start... and I've never, ever regretted him :)

  2. Congrats on the purchase... he looks so cool. Best of luck with him and the fresh start!

  3. Here's to fresh starts!! I have a feeling both of ours will lead to good things. :)

  4. He's so cute! What a great find and a great new start.

  5. Congratulations on your new start. Sam is your landmark for new beginnings. I too have landmarks, they are important. Nice blog as well.

  6. How cute! But with 4 kids I never could see taking on a pet too. Good luck!

  7. Sam is your new mascot! What a great choice!!
