I thought this tied in well with Monday's post.  In full disclosure, I edited the ending because originally I said we were getting a hummingbird tattoo. We still haven't gotten it yet because life happened, then the pandemic happened. But my mom and I should do this together this year once it's safe. A bird… Continue reading Hummingbird

One Word Holiday- Ella

Let's finish Ellie's birthday month with a little reminder of how amazing and funny she is.  Back in 2015, I had several of my friends, blog friends, and family members fill out some answers to questions I came up with. It was a lot of fun to read everyone's responses and also, I didn't have… Continue reading One Word Holiday- Ella
