wow.

it’s worse than i thought.  i just read my last post and i can’t believe what a slacker i’ve been.  i guess it’s mostly a  lack of motivation (and energy) to keep up with this blog…i’ve posted a little on my other blog.

anyway, since my last post quite a bit has happened.

  • i had a great time with my girlfriends and the etsy holiday homemade open house was great.  (i need a link to that, but i’m too lazy…if you’re interested, check out amy’s blog.)
  • my grandma died (mom’s mom…lived in atlanta…hadn’t seen her in 5 years, but she  meant alot to me).  she had a stroke or heart attack in her home and because she lived alone, her body was in the house for about 5 days before anyone found her.  wierd situation.
  • we had a great thanksgiving in orlando with ryan’s parents and my awesome sister-in-law.  it was even cool enough for a fire, which was a blessing.  (see photo at the bottom of this post)
  • i left on friday morning and drove (alone) to gainesville, ga to stay with my mom for two days and then attend her funeral.  it was a quick trip (headed home on sunday afternoon), but very well worth the effort.
  • it took me about 4 days to recover and get the house back together after i got home…i still feel very much in a whirlwind…things constantly swirling around in my head, but i started a few lists (camping stuff, christmas gifts, things to do, etc…) and i’m finally feeling a little more organized.
  • biggest news in our family right now: WE’RE HAVING A BOY!!  we found out last week and i am still seriously in shock.  i need to scan an ultrasound photo and post it…  so excited!!!
  • we’re going camping this weekend (thus the aforementioned “camping stuff” list).  i’m so excited!  hopefully i’ll have some cute pictures to post when we get back.

for now, here are two pictures of harper from the past month that i just had to share.  she is getting more and more beautiful every day. 

first, here she is on a ride at the Italian Festival that was held here in our neighborhood.  it was her first real carnival ride experience and she LOVED every second.

next, here she is on thanksgiving night…lying in front of the fire snuggled in a blanket, listening intently as her aunt erin tells her a story…ariel, i think.

  1. loving those pics 🙂 aunt erin must be a good storyteller.. she seems really into it!

  2. You better be careful. Your little girl is growing-up and will be a teenager before you know it. Don’t miss a second of her life between now and then ….

    I wish I had it to do over again ….
