Photo Slamming and Catching Up!

I'm taking a few days off talking and talking and talking! I'm falling farther and farther behind in my work, my shopping and my feeble attempts atbaking. I'll definitely be by your place, though, no worries!

And so while I'm getting caught up and doing what I know I need to get done, I pulled together some of my favorite photos to share--with many of my favorite people (not all...gosh that'd take forever!). And it occurs to me when I post these photos there might be someone out there reading this holiday season who's hurting and who isn't smiling and sharing their time with family. I want to take a second to {{hug}} you and assure you nobody's life is filled with joy all the time. Mine is far from perfect and there's plenty of heartache to go around here. More than I even care to think about. I think it's fairly typical, really, it's just not typical to announce it is so!

And if you've found yourself here, say hello, I promise I'll email you right back.

I took a picture this morning for y'all--it's my message to you as I get busy busy busy. Enjoy! Or click off the page, idk. Either way, just don't tell me you clicked off the page, that'd be mean. And then I'd have to come over and click off yours and stuff, it's how I am! xo

The pictures are great!!! However, I see something behind the smile that I recognize only too well. You are not alone....She is with you always, don't forget that. She is all around you. Wishing I had that magic wand........Love you.
