13 years ago today

  Thirteen years ago today my youngest daughter made her way into this world.  She chose to make her grand entrance during the worst ice storm we had seen in years.  She was born tiny and has always been small in physical stature, but has a giant warm, sweet, wonderful, loving personality.  She brings us so much happiness and I am so very, very proud of the amazing young lady she is growing into.  She is beautiful in every way!  Happy, happy  birthday Hannah! <3  You overfill my heart and make my world a better place.

The grown up birthday card I made for her.

Up close.  

My beautiful birthday girl.

Have a nice day. Will be back soonest.

Siblings make the best best friends!

   Hey there.  Thanks for stopping by.  I spent some time going through some of my pictures today and thought I would throw together a digi page.  It is no secret that my very favorite scrapbook page subjects are my kiddos and since they are who I happen to have the most pictures of they are my subject for my page today.  I am fortunate to have kids that really get along well (most days!).  They are sincerely friends and that makes me happy.  Here is my digital scrapbook page:

A happy day at the beach.  I love this color combo and I sure love those kiddos. I made a similar page a while back, but I like this picture so much I couldn't resist using it again.   

Have a nice day.  I will be back soonest.

Happy New Year

   Well, today marks the beginning of another new year.  Time to reflect on the last year and make plans to conquer the new one.  Are you a resolution maker?  I usually have a long list, but this go around I have decided to focus on just one thing.  I resolve to appreciate the little things.

    Sometimes life has a funny way of yanking the rug out from underneath you and challenging your ability to get back up.  Often these times make you re-evaluate things in your life.  It all goes by so quickly and so I want to be certain that I am aware of and  properly grateful for the things in life that mean so much; both big and small.

    The card that I made and am sharing today is for someone quite close and indescribably important to me.

Punch art puppy all drool-y and full of love.

I love you, Mom. <3

Have a good day!
