Did ya know?

I feel like spewing off some random 'Did ya knows' about me for fun so you can get to know me better. I'm in a weird mood. Here goes..

-Being a mom is everything to me.

Carter and I, Oct. 2009

I think that's it for now. I'm having trouble hitting the publish post button because this is all a bit personal and some of it's kind of embarrassing for me. Do I really want the world to know these things?  Isn't that part of having a blog? It does feel a little empowering to let this all out there and not care what anyone thinks. And publish.

Hey, cuz - I'm a total purse-a-holic. It's hard for me to pass up something cute, especially with vintage-style!
