Hallelujah for Hazey!

It’s been quite a while since I have purchased any hair goodies for Gwyn’s hair because they simply just wouldn’t stay put.  She has so much thick hair and they’d slide down, not grasp enough hair, or simply just fall out, so I gave up on bows and would only use little hair ties to keep […]

Just, Hand it Over

There are certain things I like to do for my family. As in, I like to be the one to do them because I actually can do them and want to show my love in that form. In a more recent instance, I’m referring to making a birthday cake. My son’s 2nd birthday is quickly approaching […]
