I am so ridiculously blessed with incredible friends around the world.  I adore them.  Each one of them has a piece of my heart. I can honestly say that all of my good friends have supported us with such crazy love over the years.  I'm sure that every now and then they have looked at us and thought, "Rather them than me!" Ha! In a good way, of course.  Recently I joked with my friend Andrea … [Read more...]

One is adorable.  But I can also have TWO (and leave them in for longer than five minutes!). "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." ~~ Phil 4:8 Yes, I will.

Four and a half years later. I give you... ...THE HAILEE PONYTAIL! For the first time since coming home, little Miss is NOT pulling her hair out! We have longer,  oh-so-pretty hair.
