Since I laid on that ultrasound table and heard we were having a girl, I have dreamed of a girly-girl. You know, with tutus and bows and pretty dresses. A girl who wants to wear her high-heel play shoes to dinner. A girl who asks to wear her dress-up clothes to the grocery store. A girl who MUST have ribbons in her pig tails.
Today, Evie and I went to lunch together. As we were going out the door, Evie insisted on wearing this yellow hat. Kind of silly, but perfectly girly. She wore it all during lunch, like she was at high tea or something.
I have been married for more than 11 years to my fantastic husband, Chris, and we have two beautiful and energetic children. Evie is 5, and full of spunk and sparkle. Ethan is 2, and has taught me about trains and construction vehicles and Buzz Lightyear - and about sweet boy cuddles.
I strive to be gentle and kind - a reflection of the love Christ has shown to us. I don't always live it perfectly, but I am working towards a life of gratitude, joy, and love!
