Charmed Life

Honestly, I went through my itunes to feel inspired.  I had a collection of memories from today, and how to express it in words had to be stimulated by music.  And so I fell for the beautiful voice of Joy Williams.  And I felt like twirling with my darlings in my arms, but instead she's fast asleep and he's off playing Halo Live.  So I sit to blog.

...to blog about things that are lovely and pretty.  



...to blog about the confidence I awake to each day as the love of my life reaffirms me with his look that keeps me cuddling a little longer and blogging a little less, and the fact that he'll take pictures of my new found confidence.



...to blog about silly faces that wipe clean the filth of anger and frustration and the image of the young girl that stands in front of me that replaces the image of the baby I had just months before.  





...to blog about my day of chasing a life made so perfect and stunning in the daughter I've been granted to  love.  











I live quite the charmed life where all my needs are met, my heart is full of LOVE, and where the breath of my daughter sends chills of excitement that I get to be her Mommy!

  6. "I live quite the charmed life where all my needs are met, my heart is full of LOVE, and where the breath of my daughter sends chills of excitement that I get to be her Mommy!" I couldn't agree more, except mine is a little boy.

    I, too, go too am so inspired by music. Joy Williams is a good one.
