Keep your head up

Well I was going to make this a long and fun post but then I stumbled across some old pictures and got sad. So this will just be filled with today.

Tried my hand at winged liner for the first time today. For a first try I was pretty pleased, though you can't see it that well in this picture.

Few things are as much fun as jumping on crunchy leaves!

Off course had to take a mommy and baby shadow pic with our recycle bags!

Found my old headband today!

We recently started geocaching and this was our second find. Look at my little adventurer!

Our "treasure" from geocaching!

"Hold your head up princess, your crown is falling."
It has now been 6 months since he left. I'm making it.

A New Year

Well I did it. I made it through 2013. I was the best and worst. Full of love and heartbreak. I'm glad to leave the year behind but I'm also sad to see it go. I had such high hopes. But now its a new year; new hopes, new dreams, maybe even a new love.

I got to finish of the year by getting a 2nd degree burn on the back of my leg. Great way to finish off a not so great year, huh? This morning Melody woke up at 5 with her first bad sore throat and cried for almost 2 hours straight, my poor baby. So we were able to just stay in and watch movies and play games. I really wish I had more Melody time, she's so wonderful.

She got the Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game for Christmas and she is in love with it! Which I'm glad, I'm a huge board game fan and I wasn't sure how she'd do since she's so into imaginative play but she really enjoys it. Speaking of Melody and love. She has a boyfriend. Like they hold hands in school and when I drop her off he stops what he's doing to go hug her. Then randomly at home or the store or anywhere I always hear, "Mommy, I'm going to marry Lincoln. We're going to dance at the ball. He's very handsome."

She slays me. And now I am slightly regretting talking to her so much about marriage since she always ends those talks with, "Mommy, why aren't you marrying Ryan anymore?" or "Don't worry Mommy, we'll find you a boy to marry." Thanks kid.

Well heres to a new year and hopefully a new and better me.
