Do you ever look at yourself sometimes and wonder How did I get here?
Not in a bad way...but just WOW...where did the time go?
In many ways, I still feel like I did when I was in high school...in other ways, I feel MUCH, MUCH older.
In other ways, it kind of scares me how old I've become.
Time has just seemed to fly past me.
Last night my Dear Hubby took "Mini Me" and "The Daredevil" on a Father/Son campout with the other men in our Church. They went fishing, camping, and had LOTS of Smores...a guys dream.
"The Perfectionist" had his 8th Grade dance last night.
He's quite the social bug and was super excited to go (even so much that he missed fishing..which he LOVES to do.) He and his "buds" went out to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner and then on to the dance.
When I picked him up, he was GLOWING. It made me as a parent so thrilled to see him enjoying life so.
It's amazing what we go through for our children...and Kim really put her heart, soul, and time into this beautiful redo. I am the worst seamstress EVER, so the fact that she completely ripped this dress apart and got it back together again really amazes and impresses me! I would never have the courage to take that dress apart. But the final dress is almost as beautiful as this sweet girl!
You totally need to go check out Kim's gallery...it seems everything she makes is beautiful. Her paintings are just amazing. That's one talent that I DO NOT have but just envy. I love her breadbox...it's so delicate and gorgeous... and that sweet toy box...it is just to die for! Such amazing work. (Have I used enough adjectives to let you know how amazed I am by her work? I am totally going to have to go check out her shop.) And if you go and check out Think Smink and become a follower you can enter to win one of her creations. Check it out on her blog HERE.
