"I love you 


(most beautiful


more than

anyone on

the Earth

and I like 

you better

than everything

in the sky."

Thank you E.E. Cummings, for expressing my feelings into words; about my beautiful boy. 

Oh Ella

My daughter is awesome.  She is original, funny, weird and I ADORE her! She is sometimes like a sour patch kid . . . first she's sour, then she's sweet. But when she's sweet, holy moly, she is sweet! I've captured a few silly Ella moments over the past couple of months I just had to share. Hope you enjoy her as much as I do!

This is a self portrait by Ella, taken on my phone. (She loves finger mustache tattoos.)

 We cleaned out her toys right after Christmas, this is the attire Ella felt was appropriate for doing this chore. 

 Ella lost her two front teeth within 3 days of each other! I LOVE this gummy smile! :)

 My little princess sleeping - isn't she graceful and serene? (Like the gloves? Ella loves to accessorize and nighttime is one of the times she really piles on the stuff!)

Pure joy watching the bank teller cartridge get sucked up the tube.  It's the simple things in life. 

Thank you Ella Jane for making my life full of fun and love.

Lunch with my favorite girls!

 I had lunch with some of my favorite people the other day - my sissy, my cousin and their two daughters, along with my little girl.  Ra was our choice and we sure did tear it up for a Saturday at noon!

I had to post pictures of my sister's parallel parking job. Granted she did it because I was way too freaked out to, but holy cow! You could fit a Prius next to my car with how far she is away from the curb! :) I made her pull in the driver's side mirror so it wouldn't get clipped from a passing car on Scottsdale road! :) Love you, Megs!

Oh these little girls . . . T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
Mmmm . . .  sushi!

Somehow I don't think this will be the last time these three will be clinking glasses!
Yep, all my favs on on park bench. My heart is full!

Happy Valentine's Day!

For all my special babes . . . 

 Happy Valentine Faces!

From the loves of my life . . . yogurt with granola and fresh flowers. 

Thank you for my special Valentine's! So blessed that I have so many hearts to be thankful for!

I love silhouettes. I love the simplicity of the pictures, the vintage feel. Yes, sir, I really love silhouettes.  An artist came to one of the kids' store we go to and I had to have him create for my kiddos.  He cuts the silhouettes by hand, just looking at the munchkins' profiles. It was so cool! I love how they turned out. Don't you?!
