Happy First Birthday to my Niece Livy

Today my niece turns one year old, I cannot believe that one year ago today I was at the hospital with limited time waiting for Miss Olivia to come to this world.

Thank You To Linda and Dana

My daughter was lucky to receive not one but two books from two authors who have fantastic writing skills! Ki was able to open a book she received in the mail just in time for her Thursday birthday and I allowed her to open the mail. You would imagine her surprise when she opened a signed copy of I DOUBLE Dare You! (Mom’s Choice Awards Recipient), that even had her birthday date and Happy Birthday wishes inside the front cover. Ki was able to open a book earlier today at her birthday party from Linda who writes Katie & Kimble […]
