This sparky, sunshine turns 8 today. I just can't. Let me tell you a little bit about her past year. After spending her whole life waiting for the little sister she'd dreamed of, her wish finally came true this past year. But while all the other siblings were embraced by our new love, she was seen as a threat. She rolled with the punches of the initial rejection. She pressed in and kept loving, and in the end she earned herself a new best friend. And I am so dang proud to be this kiddo’s mom.⠀
Hubs and I are headed to Europe in 2 days to celebrate 17 years of marriage and surviving the first year of 5 kids. And to eat. Of course to eat.⠀
When I pulled this up on my big screen, all I could see is the exasperated eyes of the sea gulls.⠀
Those hydrangeas though.
