AEIOU launch link party April 2012

Greetings all,
Welcome to the first/ maiden/ inaugural AEIOU: a mid-month-list-link-party of self-belief, improvement, acceptance, love & learning!!  It's a middle-of-the-month get together of life’s highlights. Your AEIOU might go a little something like this . . .

Awesome – something you baked/ created/ photographed/ a bargain you found
Exciting – share your news/ event/ holiday/ a gorgeous butterflies-in-tummy moment
Interesting – teach us information/ discovery/ facts/ a chance to show off your quirky side
Opportunity – embrace the unknown/ put yourself out there/ show off a new experience
Understanding – learning to appreciate/ forgive/ love/ unleash what helps you grow
. . . you might like to do a full AEIOU or just one or two particular themes . . .

To kick things off, here is my AEIOU list.  It's been a busy month here with Easter, school camps, sports clinics & finally school holidays.  My AEIOU is a light & breezey one.  Next month will be heavy as we're in the final countdown to handsome soldier coming home!!
Awesome - as our children grow, so do their needs, like a communal computer area.  I played swapsies this week: pinched this desk from a bedroom, swapped for an armchair, et voila, a whole new space has opened up our lounge - for the price of 3 tractor stools - not to mention awesome cook book storage.

 Exciting - my 3 youngest had their school camps, it was my son's first & the independence he showed getting organised, leaving & since he's come home, has been amazing.  Camps overlapped, leaving my eldest an only child = Japanese dinner & the  Mirror Mirror movie (fabulous).  I was giddy just making ONE lunch each morning, glee!!
Interesting - enjoying FatMumSlim's photo-a-day challenge this April.  Wait until you read about what this bracelet means to me.  Millions of images are involved, now that is some following Mrs Slim.
Opportunity - i did over the high schooler's bedroom today (she shares the front of the house with my studio.)  New desk (seeing hers went missing??) & arm chair + new size (i pushed my fabric racks deeper into my studio.  The middle girl is having a sleepover in the huge new space - look at them, sisters, makes me heart sing!!  Please ignore the outdoor German Shepherd, opportunist!!
Understanding - even though we're not religious, we appreciate what religious festivals are all about.  My high schooler has Religious Education classes & is teaching us, while we munch on Lindt Bunnies who were hiding in toadstools.   
Now it's YOUR turn . . .
do join in . . . links go live on the 15th of each month, this is a party to celebrate you!!
I hope you enjoy the large icons, random order & long text space to share your AEIOU link, enticing visitors from our beautiful blogging community to follow the link to your blog.  Don't forget to link back to this post & pop the AEIOU logo on your post/ blog side bar too if you wish.  Thanks for joining in - it's open all month, love Posie
PS what a lovely way to spend my 550th post with you all, squee!!  About time i started a link up right??

Jennie this is GENIUS!

You will see in my linky that I was so inspired that I created a poster to remind me to keep my eyes, heart and imagination open to be able to play along each month.

Happy day Lovely & thank you!

I love those toadstools! And how awesome to be able to get into a teenagers bedroom and give it a good sorting - exactly what I need to do around here! xx

Thanks for taking this opportunity to mention this, I'm strongly about it and I benefit from garden greenhouse structures this subject. When possible, when you gain data, please update this website with new information. I have found it extremely useful.
