My Memere

Where do I start? My Memere is strong, feisty, and a little rough around the edges. Well, let's just say she doesn't always think before she speaks. But, she has wonderful stories about how she grew up on the farm, worked in a bottle cap factory, and how she raised her eight children. I love visiting her, and seeing her interact with my children. It really is a full circle moment for me. I sometimes can't believe that I used to sit in her lap and she would rock me to sleep, she would hold my hand when we walked down the street, and I would sit at her dinner table for lunch. Now she does the same things with my children, her great-grandchildren. When I was over her house last Sunday, I noticed her hands. They were amazing. They not only showed her age, but her strength, her wisdom, her courage, her hard work, and her LIFE.

Thanks for all the lessons, stories, and love you have shown and taught me.

Jessica Sprague Class

I am so loving the Oh Shoot Photography class through Jessica Sprague's web site.

I am so inspired. I can't get enough of photography. I want to learn, experiment, be creative, and take a ton of pictures. I LOVE it!! Here are some pictures I have taken so far for the class. Thanks for letting me share.

Happy Birthday!

So my little Diva is another year old. I can't believe that she is two years old. Where has the time gone? I want to remember everything about your young life. I want to remember your smile, your laugh, your cute soft hair, your dimple in your chin, your tiny little teeth, your birth mark on your foot, your wonderful feisty personality, your spunk, and your determination. Nothing can stop you! You can do anything you put your mind too, you are one incredible little girl. A big kiss to you my big girl!She had a bird themed birthday party. It was perfect. You love birds, nature, and wildlife. I made birdhouses, a birthday banner, and cupcake toppers out of Amy Butler's scrapbook paper.

I also bought some bird shaped birdseed favors on etsy from Nature Favors.

I hand-stamped the little pots, put moss and candy in there, put them in cellophane bags, and tied them with a ribbon. Everything looked so pretty in the house. Everyone had a great time, can't wait for next year!
