Celebrating Baby James!

Ok, I thought about just making your typical list with my 28 words, but what fun would that be.  We know I’m all about having fun. 


Welcome to Baby James’ Celebration


I know God personally hand picked Baby James to be mine.  I’ll probably never know this side of heaven exactly why, but I know in my heart that I was picked.


February is a horrible month for me.  I go thru the motions of celebrating Valentine’s Day, but this year I’m going to change that.  When I circle the number 14 on my calendar  this year, I’m going to look forward to a day that is all about love.


I’m going to buy candy for my girls, make cards for people who I know could use a little lift for Valentine’s Day.  My husband is going to get something sinfully sweet, chocolate and lots of it.  I’m going to talk to Mr. Perfect AKA Shane about doing something special for his girlfriend maybe a special date.   I’m going to say, “I love you” to the people I love and mean it.  I’m going to figure out someone who needs flowers on Valentine’s Day and deliver them myself, I don’t think I’ll do traditional roses.  When I kiss Mr. Wonderful goodnight on this love filled holiday, I’m going to do it with the knowledge that I didn’t exist thru another Valentine’s Day I lived.  I’m going to teach The Baby about the saint that is responsible for Valentine’s Day and because of this saint I don’t think this photo challenge would be complete without a picture of your local jail.  How many of you are going to admit to googling St. Valentine because you didn’t know what I was talking about?  (I didn’t know until I googled Valentine’s Day for this post…ha!)


So I hope that being challenged to find pics from this list you’ll add some romance to your life, figure out how to be cupid to someone, it doesn’t have to be about gifts, remember Christmas and the idea that so many of us had about handmade gifts, let’s keep that going with Valentine’s Day.  Our sweethearts will appreciate a gift made with our two hands much more then anything we could spend our money on.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
