Hair And Make-Up

 Today, Morgan (who's the daughter of my dearest friend) came over to do a hair and make-up trial  for my show in November. My hope for my hair and make-up was that I wanted to look like myself only a stepped up version of myself, and I think it's safe to say that Morgan absolutely made that dream come true today!
I was in absolute awe of how gorgeous I looked! Honestly, I think this is easily the most beautiful I have ever looked (and felt) in my entire adult life! 
 And, as if this look wasn't incredible enough, I even managed to take a few good selfies too (something that pretty much never happens outside of when I am sitting in the car with my sunglasses on)! 
On show day I'll have lipstick on (and a spray tan!) and be in a blinged out bikini! It's going to be epic! 
And this is the gorgeous and talented woman who created my stunning look! I can't wait for the day she enrolls in beauty school! I have no doubt hat when she's done she will have an amazing client list! Thank you, Morgan, for working your magic on me and making me feel more beautiful than I ever have before! And, seriously, can you please come do my hair and make-up every day?! xo

Emma To The Rescue!

When there was finally a break in the torrential rain we had today the girls went outside to clear the drain in the driveway that had gotten cleared. I was doing a few things inside when I heard Emma call: "Mama! Come see what I have!" 
She had rescued this little worm (and a few of its wormy friends) from the puddles in the driveway. "I'm going to find a good home for him!" she exclaimed and quickly settled on one of the garden beds (that clearly needs weeding) as the perfect place. A bird yesterday and worms today. I wonder what tomorrow's creature will be?! xo

Today During Morning Lessons

Today, during morning lessons, we heard a bird hit one of the living room windows. The girls noticed that it was lying on the ground and went outside to see if it was still alive (it was). A quick Google search helped us know what to do, as well as confirm that it was in fact OK to pick it up. It took this sweet little bird about ten minutes to sit up, and then another ten minutes of sitting in Grace's lap before it finally flew off. xo

{This Moment} Together Again

{This Moment} A weekend ritual. A single photo -no words- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you are inspired to do the same leave a link to your moment in the comments section below. Wishing you all a lovely rest of the weekend! xo

On Fridays.....They Fly!

Being able to continue their aerial training now that the school year started is such a dream come true! The girls have enjoyed these classes so much, and with how often they are at the dance studio during the school year we knew that there was no way we would be able to fit in an afternoon or evening class at Born to Fly, too. Thankfully, Steve was up for adding in some classes for homeschoolers, and goodness are we ever grateful for that! Fridays at BTFP are definitely a favorite! xo
