& yes, it is totally out of focus. which happens sometimes when you use self timers on couch cushions & the camera moves. whoopsie. but I don’t care. still love it.


I’m a pretty happy mom. We maintain a pretty loving home. As a result, I have a pretty happy & very loving daughter who amazes me with her sweetness every day. She is definitely a little spitfire, but she is just as loving as they come. She’s all about giving kisses & hugs right now, and I can’t even begin to explain how warm & fuzzy that makes me feel.

I was reading an article in Kiwi Magazine this week (it’s one of my faves) and found my new favorite quote on parenting. Now I have got to read the book that the quote came from…in all my spare time. Why, oh why, must the internet steal me from books?! Well, it does, but this quote is going to live on my pinboard above my desk as a friendly reminder. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
