there is still my kids that make me smile each and every single day.
There was a murder in my hometown this week, actually right across the street from my home. We are a very small rural town and this shook the town to its core, and definitely me, too. Makes me feel soo good to see it not phase my kids as much as I thought it would, cuz they still want to play, they still want to take walks, they still want to go swimming, and they still want to BE KIDS! So I took this opportunity to snap some photos of them. They make me smile when I see how carefree they can be.
I cherish every moment even more now and when they are starting to wear my patience thin, I try to remind myself just how lucky I really am!
And on a scrappy note, I got a WONDERFUL email this morning notifying me that I wont the contest over at the Pagemaps Blog!!! I will receive a $50 gift certificate from EAD Designs. I can't believe I actually won!!
