Having Fun in the Sun

June 22, 2010

Yesterday, TT, Bessie and I spent the ENTIRE day outside in the sun and had we LOTS of fun! Sometimes, let's be honest, most of the time, it is very hard for me to pull myself away from work and really enjoy myself.

Mission Accomplished!

April 23, 2010

Every few months, I sit down with my Lova, Evan and come up with goals for OTR. I've been setting goals for myself as long as I can remember- a habit that was forced upon me by my mother.

Well, by day 4...

I work hard every day, I make beautiful things, and I get to spend almost every waking minute with my beautiful, rambunctious, spirited, and smart baby girl.Not everyone can look at my life and see how wonderful it is and sometimes that hurts me. ...

However, stories like Working Overtime: Christy Rose of KBShimmer -I can relate to...well, sort of. As I have mentioned before, I have a job...
