Happy Birthday Madison!

Twelve years ago today, well yesterday actually, I was admitted to the hospital to be induced because the little lump in my tummy refused to move out.  She was stubborn even before she came into the world.  Somewhere around 16 hours, a fainting Hubby and a c-section later, Miss Madison blessed our lives.

Today I/we want to wish her the very best 12th birthday any little girl young lady could ever have:

To my beautiful baby girl that I accidentally dropped on […]

A dear friend reminded me that I haven’t posted my 100 Random Acts of Kindness list this year!

I’m so sorry that it slipped my mind!

Not to worry – there is still time to do a few pre-Holiday good deeds, and RAK’s really don’t have to end on Christmas day….

why not make it a challenge to do 100 Random Acts of Kindness in 2018?!

 

Here is my list, please print one for yourself and share on Facebook and Pinterest so that others […]

(Faux) Metal sign

Are you a Joanna Gaines fan?

I’m not really country or farmhouse chic – but there’s something about her style that appeals even to me.  Maybe it’s the warm and welcoming feel.  Maybe it’s the metal sign she hangs in every house.

Where did I go?

I’m sorry I was AWOL last week – I promise I wasn’t abandoning you for binge-watching Grace & Frankie (although I did do that) – last week was a bit crazy with “stuff to do”.

We went to Florida for March Break, so last week was all about ‘catch-up’ – the worst part of coming from vacation.

Yes, given that this was my vacay-view, I certainly won’t complain […]
