Memorial Day...

Today is Memorial Day...a day to remember our fallen soldiers and an opportunity to thank the ones who are currently serving our country. Our US military, and their families, make me so incredibly proud and humbled by their service...I sometimes find myself in tears.

So, with that...thank you. Thank you all SO much for what you do and how you give.

I am an incredibly grateful US citizen who appreciates the men and women, and their families, who sacrifice so much to protect our freedoms and what American stands for. I am amazed at your dedication to our great country, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

All my love, respect, and admiration,

PS...if you haven't seen the submissions for The Pioneer Woman's "Coming Home" photos, you should check them out. They're amazing. Breathtaking, heartwrenching, and simply amazing. Make sure to grab a tissue...


  1. Oh man! Not sure I should look at the pictures. I'll be a sniveling mess. BUT...I'm off to do it anyway :)

  2. Ok, had to stop looking at the pictures--I'm at work, on the middle of the unit, and I'm crying! I gotta quit!

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 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!
