About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Savannah is 11 months old!

Oh my gosh! We only have one more month before you turn a year old.  How did this happen?  You are starting to show me that you can live without me and that you don't need to be tied to my hip.  If we are at home, you will crawl into the playroom and start playing with the toys by yourself.  When I drop you off in the church nursery, you scream while I'm in the room but as soon as I leave, you stop and start to play with the other children.  I left you for 3 days while I went to visit my sister, and you were a perfect angel for Daddy and the babysitter. So my dear, you are headed to daycare next week while I venture back out into the office world.  And I'm pretty sure it's going to do wonders for both of us.

 You don't like your pack & play but you find joy in sitting in a laundry basket.

You love laundry days!

You are obsessed with socks and dirty laundry.  Bradley will say that you are storing up socks like a chipmunk stores up acorns.  It's hilarious to watch you gather all the socks you can find and tuck them under your chin.  Hilarious and weird.

You dressed up as Minnie Mouse for your first Halloween.  The Minnie Mouse ears were not a hit with you and they only stayed on long enough for a picture.  

 You don't often smile like this but when you do it makes me so happy!

 I'm not quite sure why you love dirt as much as you do.  
It's another obsession you have.

You love waiting at the door when I tell you Daddy is on his way home.

 Those big, beautiful eyes make my heart melt.

 You are a terrible sleeper.  We have quite the routine to get you to 
take a nap or to go to sleep at night.  

 You're very regular after your morning breakfast and we all have fun watching you with your extreme facial expressions.

 The look of pure annoyance.

  I love watching your little hands tightly hold your little bear or your bunny.  
Your face lights up when you are hugging these stuffed animals.

 Those eyes send out curses when your breakfast isn't hot and ready.

 You think you are all that when you sit in the front seat waiting at the bus stop
 for Bradley to come home from school.

I love my little Mainer!
