LOVES


Loves turned 10 for goodness sake! I turned 36.  My 26th birthday I woke up to strong contractions and 6 hours later welcomed my sweet Loves into this world. I have not nor will I ever regret that. I feel so blessed to be able to help raise such a kind, warm soul. She believes, as do I, in that little spark of hope within everyone that if nurtured and held dear, blossoms into such beauty that it astounds even the hardest skeptics. She loves to love that gorgeous Loves.
For our birthday we went swimming in an outdoor pool with my sister-in-law, something we both adore, and then that same sweet sister gave us an ice cream cake to take home and we went to my mum & dad's and devoured that delight. Ice cream cake and cheesecake are really the only way I like to cake it. We then took my mum and watched Maleficent at the local 2 buck theater. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I felt so wrapped in love and so full of ice cream and post-swim peace --- I was like in the mecca of fantastical feelings. No crap could penetrate...that's how I want life to be always.
