time flies.

Spring break is over and I was sad to see my little Bella leave for school this morning. 9 more weeks until we can sleep in and leisurely get up and have the whole day in front of us. 9 more weeks with just my youngest. Granny goes home this weekend and that makes me sad too. Why does time fly by when you get older? I NEVER thought I would be 30. Oh well, I've heard the thirties are better than the twenties so I am going to slow down and enjoy every moment of them. Especially my babies. I spent a good part of yesterday ordering year end books from My Publisher and organizing my digital albums. Did I really once have babies? When did they get so big? I can feel myself tearing up just typing this. WOW!

Anyways, I plan on enjoying these last 2 months with Jude and I spending "quality" time together. He starts school next year and that fact is very grim to me. Just last night he was telling me he wanted to homeschool. You see, I think he will miss me as much as I will miss him. At least until he starts school and realizes how much fun he is having and how boring I actually am! FYI...he just told me "you're the best mom ever, you really are!". I've got them fooled, but that's OK, right?

Don't Kill Me...

So, this morning while making GAK for an extremely bored 4 year old, I got a phone call from my sister in law. She asked if I was mad at her. I was a bit confused and tried to think back to previous conversations. Why would I be mad? She told me she drew a picture of me. I was a little scared, not because of her talent (she is amazing), but I HATE any picture of me in any form. I was curious though so I quickly ran to my computer and pulled up the email that said "Don't kill me". Well...let me tell you, I was beyond amazed at what I saw. A portrait of me & my camera. It's beautiful! Thank you so much Celeste :) I love it! Just when I think you've found your niche, you surprise me with something different. Let me tell you, this girl can do anything and I mean ANYTHING. Just ask her for her recipe for homemade Lara Bars or her cashew carrot soup. She exudes creativity in every aspect of her life from her home, her style, her art, her cooking and entertaining. To top it all off, she's beautiful on the inside and out. All I can do is make GAK! I am so proud to be her sister :)
