Jalyn was very proud to be a part of his sister's big day.
My shy little love bug.
We went out to lunch afterwards, just the four of us. We had a wonderful time until...... Two people asked what was wrong with Leila's face and I cried. I am very protective of my baby and I couldn't find the words to put them in their place. I was ashamed of myself for not speaking up and angry at them for having the nerve to ask such a thing. The world is so cruel. I'm so thankful that our inner circle is so incredibly supportive and loving. Jalyn had no problem celebrating!
Her first strawberry shake! Think she's intoxicated from the delicious cream!

In need of some ideas? Here are a few of my favorite things. Maybe this will help you shop for that special woman in your lives!
My favorite perfume, Heavenly by Victoria Secret.
Stationary. A friend gave this to me as a gift once and I loved it. Things like this you typically wouldn't buy for yourself.
Jewelry is always a nice option, but this gals jewelry is amazing and unique! The Vintage Pearl. I would love one with my two darlings names (hint, hint Santa!)
For the woman that loves to cook/bake. This is one of my favorite cook books.
The most adorable hair pieces I've ever seen. Sophisticated yet fun! I have one and always receive comments! Bebecha.
An apron is one of the best gifts you could give this gal! Here is my favorite.
If your a grandparent, a loving auntie or a really awesome friend, the gift of babysitting so she can have a night with her hubby would be so thoughtful! Believe me, the best of gifts is giving your time.
My fav lip gloss in "You're Golden"! It's a neutral tone and looks great on everyone, even has gold flecks in it!
Well now, there you have it. If your sitting on the fence of indecision than hopefully your off it after reading this!

Today I checked in on my friend Lori's blog. She and her husband were in the process of adopting in Kyrgyzstan when a miracle happened, she became pregnant. I have followed her blog daily since. Today I was saddened and heartbroken at what I found.
Please read their story and send as many prayers as you possibly can up to heaven.
Lori, I am praying for you. I am praying for Matthew. Matthew felt more love in his short time here on earth than most children feel in a lifetime. May God be with you and your family and in time bring you peace.
