There are areas of my life that I wish I could keep hidden forever. A little impossible to do when you have friends and family that have no problem being blunt and calling your mess for what it is.

A Little Extra Love

My baby girl never ceases to amaze me. She is filled with so much love for those around her. She notices people in need of a little extra love.
