Sometimes it's ok to be a follower

Hello Everyone,

I finally receive my boots. Yay!! I had given up on getting them and left for the afternoon. After being gone for a few hours I find that it had been raining, for quite sometime. I checked my tracking number to see where my shoes were and you guessed it, sitting on my front step. Suede shoes sitting in the rain, all I could do was laugh. When I got home I was thrilled to find that the delivery person had wrapped them and a plastic bag and they were completely dry.

(I did a little happy dance when no one was looking.)

Then over the weekend, the best event ever.
My little guy looked up at me
little arms stretched up 
said Mama

First time. I melted. It was so wonderful.
(Major happy dance)

Nadia Cuddlebug Cuties

I started a new art journal and Nadia is the first cuddlebug in it. I'm still working on her set of pages but I'm enjoying a fresh start in a new book. I enjoy having dozens of blank pages and imaging what I will create on them. So much fun.
