{ my girl... }

Have you ever met an angel? I have. 

Bella @ 2 by you.

Eight years ago today, at 8:34 pm, this perfect December angel fluttered into my life and would forever change it {in the best kind of way}. She's had my heart since the second I discovered she was on the way {though I didn't know she was a she} and when my sweet Bella finally arrived on that 5th day in December, I was totally and completely, head over heels, in love at first sight with her.

Her daddy's long, thick eyelashes and those sugar plum fairy lips were the first thing I noticed, and I soon discovered that this tiny new person in my life was already perfect to me in every little way. 



That she's turned out to be smart, charming, funny, adventurous, independent, curious, kind, my one and only--and my friend--makes the joys of motherhood all the sweeter.

I am off for a weekend of celebrating with oodles of sparkle, gingerbread houses and other sweet delights.  I'll be back to catch up with you all next week--I have many, many holiday surprises that I can't wait to share with you in the coming weeks. Until then,  I wish you all your own happy, happy weekend!    xo ~Suzanne
