My Elle turned 8 years old. Hard to believe. Turning 8 is a big deal in our family because that means you get to be baptized. Elle's baptism is next Saturday. She is beyond excited and ready. I took her out tonight, just the 2 of us, to take some pictures to remember this special birthday. The sunlight on the hill was so beautiful. We had so much fun together. I absolutely adore this little girl. I often tell her that she is "my dream/wish that came to life". That always puts a smile on her face (and it's true!) It is so amazing to watch her grow-up right before my eyes. The picture with her walking up the dirt path makes me tear up. I just look at my sweet girl and that picture just makes me think of all of the LIFE she has ahead of her. As her mom, I want only the best and sweetest things in life for her. She is such a beautiful person inside and out. I am one lucky mama to get to call this one, mine.
I switched up our downstairs powder room a bit. I found the venetian glass mirror almost a year ago at a store that was going out of business. I've always thought venetian glass is so pretty and feminine. The little rug was one I found at Lowe's of all places. My very favorite item is the little antique table. I love antiques and love that they're usually one of a kind pieces. That space has been empty for years because I have never been able to find anything I like to put there. I saw this little table for almost nothing at one of my favorite antique/thrift stores. It's perfect and I love all of the carvings on it. My dream would be to wallpaper this little powder room but that will have to wait. For now, it's just perfect.
