Growing Up Too Fast

Here is another layout of Marisa enjoying her "new room". She got some big girls furniture this past week: twin bed, tall dresser and night stand and mirror. We topped it off with a Tinkerbell theme and she is having her bedtime water with her Tinkerbell tulip cup.

I am Me

This was taken at my friend's bridal shower in the garden. I wanted her to look at me and smile and she wouldn't because she is "miss independent", stubborn and her own person. She is also the sweetest little girl in the world and she is all mine!!! Love you baby girl!!!!

Gosh, how I love the fall season. Back home in Utica, NY you would get the best of the best. The trees leaves would turn the most beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange. The air always had a crispness and the aroma of wood burning in fireplaces. This photo was taken when me and my husband went back home in the fall of 2006 for a family wedding. It was the best as I had not experienced the fall season in five years. :)
