My Heart Aches...

Tonight my heart aches.

For a couple who will be going home with empty arms and broken hearts. A nursery full of beautiful gifts, but no baby to sleep in it. Unfulfilled dreams, unanswered questions, a door slammed shut on visions of a baby girl in pig tails and pink ruffles.

I am raw, drained...and I cannot begin to imagine what they are feeling. What I know is that I have to remember that as unjust as life can seem, God has a plan, we may not understand it, but He had a need for that gorgeous baby girl to be with Him.

So, tonight, I will pray.

I will pray for that couple, their families, and their sweet baby girl. That God will raise them up and walk along with them through this nightmare. That He will mend their broken hearts.

I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!

So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
