Thought I’d stop by to wish you a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
Hope everyone had a safe, happy, and wonderfully fun holiday!

Can you believe how much they've grown since last year? Is it even POSSIBLE for Ro to fit into that dress already? T first wore it in 2009 when she was two, retired it last year at four. . . . when did they get so big!? Remember how small they both were on Rowan's first fourth in 2010? I'm SURE that Teagan's first fourth was also only a moment ago. I clearly remember being sad to have nothing special ready for her very first holiday . . . never let that happen again!
I miss this space, and am sorry for my absence. It seems as if time has been falling away from me like sand through fingertips - I can't find any at the end of the day, despite my clutching fistfuls. . . I'll keep trying. The time I spend alone and quiet, the sifting and sorting-through of thoughts, images, and memories of busy days brings me much happiness, and I have sincerely missed it - as well as reading all of the wonderful comments you all leave to encourage us on our way. Hoping to see you again very soon!
