Happy Birthday, Miss 16 {Family}

Dear Miss 16, Girl, you have been a source of joy and laughter since the day you surprised us at the doctor’s office. Nothing like going to the doctor’s for a tubal ligation and finding out that you’re pregnant… We should have known then that we were going to be in for a ride. I [...]

If You’re Stressing Over Christmas, You’re Doing It Wrong (Repost}

The other day I was watching CNN and they were talking about how to soothe the guilt over not being able to give the number and types of gifts one would like to give this Christmas season and I was kind of thrown for a loop. I always thought Christmas was about celebrating the birth of the [...]

A Girl and Her Guitar

Last week, Miss 15 begged me to take her to the store because she’d been saving her babysitting money to buy something very special… An acoustic guitar, which she’s teaching herself to play. Do you remember what you spent your first earnings on?

1957 Chevy Bel Air {Photography}

Yesterday, I got to spend some one~on~one time with the boy. It’s rare that he and I spend time hanging out with each other. I’m so not into video games and he could care less about crocheting. But one thing we do have in common is a love of old cars. Who knew? When we [...]
