Wow, today's prompt is a doozy! Well if time and money were no object, then I would jump into researching my family ancestry more. I am fascinated by my roots and where our family has come from. The only way to know where you are going in the future is to truly understand where you have been in your past. I've actually done a decent amount of research by I have been stuck at my great-great-great grandparents. I have discovered that none of our family on any side ever came through Ellis Island in fact our family came through Miami, New Bedford and Nova Scotia. I always wondered why no family name appeared at Ellis Island when I visited it as a kid. Truth be told I felt a little cheated during that field trip, still being too young to understand the complexity of immigration. Ideally I would love to research and find family we have no idea about in other parts of the world... how fascinating that would be.... to discover something new that you can pass on to your own children one day.

Projects.... mmmmm the very thought brings to mind grade school days filled with crayons, construction paper, markers, paint and any other odds and ends. Now as an adult, I love to brainstorm ideas for new projects! You see I secretly love making lists of things to do, projects I have been inspired to do, etc. Visit my Pinterest site and you will find boards upon boards of crafty or creative things I want to try but somehow never quite manage to complete and some even start.
Some people have a little black dating book but I have a little black project book! and then crossing a nice crisp line through them. I find that as I make lists and start projects that I am often inspired to start another project. This is actually how I started blogging! I happened to be working on a literacy project for my old alma mater.... Bridgewater State University, when I became inspired to blog about various "mom" or family related topics. It has since grown to involve other Moms and professionals of Cape Cod as well as opportunities to review products and classes! So while my little black project book may never get all the items crossed off, it certainly inspired me to grow in new directions to places I never thought possible!
Do you like starting new projects? Are you able to stay on track and complete them?
