Valentine's Day Mural

I love making these posts! Sweet, short, specific, little posts.... I can tackle these no problem! But please, before we get started, look back at 2016 Valentine's day shoot to reminisce if you want and the boys mailing love cards here a few years back.
Okay, now on to a new project! We have a shed in our backyard with this empty bare wall. I've thought about making it a rock climbing wall. Painting a mural. Mounting planters all over it. Etc.
But I figured using it for every major holiday's background would be more fun. 
So here you go, a Valentine's Mural just for fun (behind the scenes pics at the bottom). 
And just so that this post doesn't disillusion anyone, photo shoot day isn't perfect. 
Here are some major fails: 
Major. Meltdowns. Please don't tell anyone this had to be photographed on two separate days because OH
MY
GOSH
Being a model is SO hard. 
And like I promised, here are some behind the scenes:

Have a lovely Saint Valentine's Day everyone! Cherish your loved ones and treat them nice!

She's 3 now....

That's right. Looooong ago, I had the most beautiful water birth in my mother's cozy home in the middle of rural Texas. It was literally a labor full of love. Family gathered, held, sang, swayed, and oooh-ed over her. In fact, everyone still Oooh's over her. She walks in and everyone's eyes light up. Her little eyes scan you to see if you're safe and she'll scurry behind me at times. She is the smartest little squishy thing I have ever made, owned, and loved. And today, she's 3. 
She wore a tiara around town and let everyone know that it was her birthday. She loved all the attention and invited complete strangers to her unicorn birthday party this weekend. 
An even longer time ago, I had little boys who were 3 too. Here they are in comparison to Elena. 
And here are all my nuggets that I squish and love and kiss and hug everyday because I can't get enough of them!!! 
I'm so honored to be their Mom. My hands are always full, but never in comparison to my heart! 

If you'd like to leave Elena a note, please email me so I can read them to her: sanlynet@gmail (insert the dot com...)

Have a beautiful day today! We hope to see you at her birthday party this weekend in Dublin!
