Another thing I wish I could push the reset button for--actually, not reset, just PAUSE--is this pretty little angel. My niece and God-daughter Lily Claire was born last year on February 2nd, so Monday is her FIRST BIRTHDAY!
I was lucky enough to be able to fly to the West Coast for two weeks to help out right after my sister had her. Mainly I helped with Lily's big sister, Emma Grace, who was 2.5 at the time and is enough to keep four adults occupied at all times. But I got one good long night with Lily, too, when she needed to be held (and her parents very definitely needed sleep). Here she is after a bath. Isn't that yawn just too precious?
I didn't get to see them at Christmas because the
So Happy Birthday, Lily Claire! Aunty Cameron loves you even though she lives far away
This week I got some GREAT news about a friend who had a health scare (HOORAY!), some worrisome news, some sad news, some crazy news. Please, no one call me with any more news. No gnus is good gnus with Gary Gnu. I was "trapped" in the house for a couple days while it was snowing and I was a big 'fraidy cat about driving. I laughed for five minutes straight when Jason called me from work to tell me he was "fixin' to come home." I had my hair done... it's always just as lovely to catch up with my friend Cindy (who happens to be my colorist and stylist) as it is to have fresh new hair. Jason finished painting the dining room. I finished a ton of new Valentine's Day designs and I can't wait to photo and upload them to etsy next week. We played some Wii; I am a Sun Salutation Yoga Master (on my first try!). I also rocked the tightrope. I worked myself into a tither 1.5 times (or maybe 15 times) throughout the week and also assured myself a very busy weekend. DOH!
Happy Weekend, everyone. Stay warm!
