Everett’s One Year Portraits

I feel the need to document all of Everett’s milestones.  Much more so than I did with either Greenleigh and Hazeline at his age.  It might stem from watching his sisters grow so fast or the fact that he’s the last baby or my love for professional photo sessions…it’s hard to pinpoint, really, but I […]

Things No One Told Me About Pregnancy

Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s discussion. “I don’t understand why they don’t fit,” I mumbled to my friend amidst the rows of shoes in DSW.  “I’m a perfect 7 1/2, they always fit,” I continued, as I struggled to cram my not-so-perfect-7 1/2 foot into a 7 1/2 shoe.
