10 Years Ago.

10 years ago, I had just spent my first night at home as a mother of three.

I was exhausted, emotional, and totally and completely in love with the adorable bundle of blue in my arms.

Sweet Dubya was the most amazing baby. Chubby, laid back, self soothing, happy, and cute as a gosh dang bug's ear. 

We won't talk about the turn of events that happened when he turned 18 it was like somebody flipped a switch and my laid back baby became a bulldozer of a toddler and his mantra (you know, IF 18 month olds had mantras) was "WRECK ALL THE THINGS!!". 

Good thing he was so cute...and that sweet little "side dimple" near his temple would peek out every time he got that twinkle in his eye and grinned mischievously and gosh, how do you get mad at that?!

Darn side dimple. Gets a guy out of trouble every time.

10 years. One decade. I have been blessed immensely by being this amazing boys mama. I am so very proud of his huge, tender heart, his work ethic...and that old mischievous twinkle?

It's still there...right alongside that side dimple!

Happy birthday, sweet boy. You make me so happy and I am so lucky to be your mama!!!

We love you so much!!

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
