Three Things Thankful

Guys, the stars aligned for me this week.  The hubs was out of town for work so I was on 24/7 mommy duty.  It happened to coincide with Babe sleeping 13 hour nights and taking 3 hour naps.  This will probably never happen again, but it made me thankful for just about everything I saw.  I […]
