THREE years already!

Three years ago today I entered Blogland with this little post. No fanfare, no comments. Three years later I'm still at it and some days I still feel like I'm talking to myself, but that's OK. I have made a few friends along the way and my world is a brighter place because of you! I hope yours is too!

I'll admit I'm a bit biased, but seriously, isn't my grandson too cute? He really is a character! Fortunately he loves having his picture taken. His mom took these great shots.

The journaling tag on the second layout says:


I love that you styled your hair just the way you like it!

I love that you knew what you wanted and went for it!

I hope you always do!

On a lighter note...

I just finished the journaling for this layout I made last weekend. I wrote:

Sadly, I don't know much about this picture. I think I was 2 or 3. That would make my mom about 23 or 24. I think we were in Kansas at my dad's relatives farm, but I'm not sure why I think that other than the fact we were sitting on bales of hay! Maybe we were on our way to California from Florida? So many unknowns :(

What I do know for sure is that I love everything about it! The colors, mom's hair, the scarves, her over sized flannel shirt & green corduroy capris, the walking stick & hay, my red sweater & the ruffles on my dress & socks, my shoes, her sandals. Like I said, all of it! Because it all speaks to me and reminds me of my mother's love and our bond. It has always been there and always will be, though I miss her terribly still, and always will.

And just in case you are needing some encouragement today:
