A Different Kind of Post

I've been on an adventure...did you know? Not an adventure I planned, but one I've taken nonetheless. During this adventure, there were moments of victory and hidden pitfalls that slowed me down. It may have taken more effort than it should have...in fact, it definitely did. In the end, it's those moments of victory that matter most. Like having a healthy Awesome Guy and two little redhead beauties.
Like dressing those little redhead beauties in embellished outfits...a bit of embroidery and a vintage linen tea towel.

And letting them know that any time is a good time to wear a fancy hat.
Like having such good friends that not only understand this principle, but can also share two of the most enjoyable hours with you among old and dusty treasures.
And teaching these fairly new treasures, that no matter what, every girl deserves to be treated like a princess.
We are all on adventures. Sure, there are pitfalls. Sometimes they are hidden and surprise you completely. Don't let them stop you...you never know what victorious moment is just ahead. With moments like that, surely there must be angels among us. :)

What's your latest moment of victory?

My latests moment of victory. . . getting out of bed! It's been soooo cold, those warm blankets just seem to call me to stay. :)

What a wonderful post. My last victory was today, hanging with 2 preschoolers and a wickedly sick husband. I haven't lost my head.....yet!
Cheers,
