Lost. and Found. Mostly.

My kids and I have grown, in different ways...these were taken last summer. I absolutely love them. I will soon post single pics and expose their personal lives one by one, lol! Once again, Kellie did a fabulous job, and it's just about time to have them taken again! A lot has happened in the last few years. Many good things and many not so good things. I will share eventually. Some things are just too painful to relive just yet. I AM going to try to post more, if only to keep a family journal of sorts. I've never been one to take millions of pictures and I worry that my kids will wonder if I even owned a camera! (Um, yes, I do...I just forget it all the time.) So...I'm workiing as an AmeriCorps member and I am in charge of a volunteer reading intervention program at Brighton and Rosey's school. Hard to believe, but Mia and Mack are in junior high now.  And of course, I'm still 29 years old ;) I am still in college full-time and my world needs a few extra hours a day! More to patient.

Happy Birthday MiaLeigh!

MiaLeigh Marie,
Eleven years old. Really, I can't believe it. Time does fly, I was so excited for you to come home. I spent many sleepless nights dreaming up hair styles and fun things for us to do. I prayed for you to stay little, but I guess you eventually had to grow up. You are quiet, determined, sensitive, sneaky (in a good way), brilliant at the piano, an excellent friend, and one of the greatest joys in my life. I depend on you for too much, and you handle it so well. You take charge of the little girls so that I can study and freak out just a little bit. I hope you find all the happiness you deserve. You are beautiful, outside and inside. I love you so much!
Happy Eleventh Birthday!
love, MOM

I am going away for awhile. Not really away...just away from this blog. I am going to find myself. The real me has been away too long, and I am finally going to find her. (No, I haven't lost my mind...I've finally come to my senses.) I got lost a while ago. I feel bits and pieces of the me I love trying to surface and it feels like bubbles inside of me. They make me want to giggle out loud. I can't wait to find the whole me, again. Good things are coming, I can feel it. Don't worry about me while I am gone. I will be okay. I always am :)
~Love, Amy

Dear Spring,

Try harder. I could really use a little more sunshine and flowers.
Can't wait to see you.
