Christmas in the Bedroom

A little touch of Christmas in the bedroom....


My snowmen ornaments have found a new home on my white Christmas Tree that is now adorning my new bedroom... perfect way to start a wonderous season!

My First Child

Where do the years go? I don't know. I sit here today on my daughter's 26th Birthday. I am in awe at what a wonderful woman she has grown into and how much she continues to surprise me with her talents.
Twenty-six years ago, I was in Mercy Hospital in Portland, Maine awaiting the arrival of my firstborn. I was scared and excited at the same time. My mother was there to help me through this and very excited as this would be her first grandchild.

Raising a child is a challenging task. I am thankful for my husband who helped raise my daughter and for the loving extended family who gave Jessica a wonderful childhood and bestowed gifts(even if age inappropriate).. all her life.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful little girl who has grown up to be a fabulous, inspirational, intelligent woman. A village helped raise her.....so I am grateful to all those as well!
