About Me

Hi. I"m living in the Northeast with my supportive hubby, 2 great girls and toddler son. I run a home based business around scrapbooking and rubber stamping and love everything about those crafts! I also work p/t as a Physician Assistant in Internal Medicine...back after a 10 year hiatus to take care of the kids--loving that, too!

It's her birthday...and she's 11!

My oldest turned 11 today--even though this is posting the next day (I'm a night owl, what can I say?).  Hard to believe that eleven years ago, on March 23rd, at 5:20pm, she came into this world and made me a Mommy for the 1st time.  She is growing into a beautiful, intelligent young lady and we love her very much.  We are proud of her accomplishments and look forward to what the future holds.  This week alone, she earned her blue belt in Tae Kwon Do and performed for us at band rehearsal during a visit to her school.  Her trombone playing has come a long way in a few short months. Today, we went out for dinner and then came back to the house for a little cake--one of her favorites--Red Velvet.  Last weekend, we took her to Washington, DC-at her request-as her birthday gift from us.  We had a great time and she was excited to bring back some of DC's finest cupcakes to enjoy this week.  Here are some pictures of our trip and of our celebration today.  May you have many, many, more happy and healthy birthdays ahead, baby girl!
