Miss me?

How do you let an entire month pass you by without blogging? Or really even notice that an entire month has, in fact, passed you by? I thought that all of my loyal (or maybe not so loyal anymore) readers deserved an update.

It seems like Hollie has transformed over night. She does something new every day, from howling like Snoopy (which is hil-ar-ious!) to bringing me a da-ba-ba (bottle) when she's hungry. I mentioned a diaper earlier tonight, & she went & found me one. I sometimes forget that she understands everything we say. It seems like yesterday she was my baby. Today she is this crazy toddler that knows exactly what she wants & when she wants it. I see so much of myself in her already. Although, apparently her obsession with unloading every cupboard in the house came from her Daddy. Thanks for that, Sweets. As much as it makes me sad to see her grow up & away, I absolutely love watching the process.

Boy Sam is still as patient, happy & loving as ever. He just received a yearly award for Employee Engagement at work. He'd never toot his own horn, so I'll toot it for him. Way to go, babe! I just adore him. I couldn't ask for anyone better.

And me? I'm just caught up in living. Trying to savor the good moments & learn from the bad. They're mostly good, though. I needed a change, so I chopped my hair. It feels so good. We'll see if I regress back to the flip. It's an addiction I can't seem to break. ;o) But for now, I'm loving the change.

Tonight I pulled out my camera & just played. I had 2 sessions today, but I guess I didn't get enough time behind my lens. It's been such a long time since I've just played with my camera. Just for fun. Just because. I loved every minute. I've never really captured "me". So, these "selfers" are my attempt.

Happy birthday to me...

See what I got...

Only mine's white & a 2007. And yes, it really does have a beverage cooler in the glove box. How cool is that?! At 25, after many, many years of waiting, I finally have a new car.

Baby Will

Our new nephew, sweet baby Will was born on Feb. 6th, almost a month early. He's so tiny, but healthy & strong. What an amazing experience it was to witness his birth. The spirit is so strong as they leave the loving arms of their Heavenly Father and begin their journey on this earth. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this beginning for him.
