beautiful things.

I brought this big fella out of storage and into the nook where I do yoga a little bit ago. It's a shitty mat job (I did it myself years ago without the proper equipment - it's sad) but I love him. I called him 'the bone daddy' after Jack Skellington form The Nightmare Before… Continue reading beautiful things.

thoughts about my first born on her 8th birthday. 

Can I be sappy for a minute, please? (Let's be real. I'm typing this whether you like it or not, with or without your permission).

I learned a really cool thing about God yesterday that I should probably already know... But hey, I'm a hands-on learner. So anyway, this is how the lesson went: Yesterday, I had a really great day overall. But there were a few things, just little things that got under my skin.
