I wasn’t sure what to wear… so I brought and tried on a couple of dresses and took photos in the mirror to see which I liked better… Russ’ “that one looks fine” to every outfit I tried on was not at all reassuring! This was the winning outfit 😉

It seems fitting that on International Women’s Day, I should post a photo of the women that I made… from scratch… and raised… and am so very proud of <3

It is such a privilege to watch them grow in a world where their rights matter and where their desires are worthy of consideration… there is still much work to be done – but times, they are a changin’ …  I can only pray that one day ALL women have the same opportunities as my gorgeous girls <3

This morning we took a trip out to Bingley Farms in Sutton to check out their honey extraction operation… I had no idea how it was done… it was really interesting… but I still don’t like honey – sorry guys 😛

It was a bit of a rough deal for fourteen year old Willow – filling in for Xan’s U18 indoor hockey team… for a 10:10pm Friday night game… but she stepped up and did a great job – not sure she is feeling so awesome right now, though! lol

My awesome birthday pressies… our first piece of real furniture bought for a specific place in our new house… not hand-me-down, not cheap second hand, not multi-purpose so we can use it in the next house… this was bought for THIS spot, in THIS house! … plus – as if that wasn’t enough – I was also given an awesome AMBIDEXTROUS wireless mouse!  A high end mouse that I can actually use with my left hand! WooHoo!
