Helping clean her room recently, I noticed some old ink writing/scribbling on my daughter's nightstand.

When I gaze upon her, sometimes it makes me feel like the world has gone mad because this is my baby girl!

I do celebrate my children growing up -- birthdays are always a big deal in our home, and I realize that growing up is suppose to happen. But that doesn't mean I like it.

When my daughter, nearly as tall as I am, can slip on my shoes and borrow my clothes without them falling off, it completely melts me. She's got the movements of a girl but the growing body of a young woman.

So, in regards to that ink scribbled on the furniture, I think I will always leave it there as a sweet reminder.


  1. Awe...sometimes we must just step back and savor the beauty of the moment!

    1. Life is busy, but yes, sometimes it's fulfilling to take a step back, a deep breath, and absorb that around you. We overlook so many little things in our lives.

      How the heck are you, btw? How's your blog coming along?


I am incredibly grateful for your comment! I will respond as soon as possible. XOXO, Mandi
