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.

Yeah you are back. I have been missing your posts. I love your hair, very cute. Congrats to Sam. I love hearing about the new things my sweet little niece does, however she is looking so old now. When did she get so much hair. I can't believe how big she looks now. It wasn't that long ago that I saw her. Give her a big hug from me!

they do grow too fast, don't they? Amazing how that works. I love the new haircut! I know I always tell you that when you flip it under, I think different is good. I am too chicken to go drastic, but if I looked like you, I probably wouldn't be so afraid! You always look awesome! :)
