Ella woke up from her nap today crying and fussy. She hadn’t been asleep long, and I knew she wasn’t ready to wake up. I scooped her up from her bed and rocked her back to sleep. It has been ages since she has fallen asleep in my arms in the rocking chair. The sweet smell of her hair and snuggling were so wonderful. She slept in my arms for over an hour. I can’t help but wonder how many special times like this we will share before it is the last time I rock her to sleep. I know these precious moments are fleeting, so I am so thankful each and every one.
- 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!
