About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Aleck's First Birthday

I can’t believe a year ago tonight we were blessed with the arrival of Aleck. The past year has flown by. I spent most of the day reminiscing about the day Aleck was born. I would look at the clock and remember what was happening at that exact time one year ago. Today was an amazingly special day.

Aleck celebrated his 1 year birthday for the 3rd time tonight. We visited family in Alabama and Mississippi a few weeks ago, and had early birthday parties with our family. We celebrated his first party with Nana and Papaw Brooks, Tom's parents. We celebrated his second party in Mississippi a few days later with Mamaw and Papaw Hartness, my parents. I will post pictures from those parties later.

Tonight, we had a little celebration with Mike and Sami, dear friends that feel like family. Sami's daughter, Charli, was born 5 weeks after Aleck. Sami's Mom, Connie, cooked the best homemade Mac and Cheese...yum, yum! Joni, another dear friend, also helped us celebrate. What a special night! We are truly blessed.
