Spring Break 2014! It started with Easter and ended with my Grandmother's 85th Birthday Party. I took a few days off and Stella and I made the best of the week. Instead of just writing about it, I decided it would be better to show in pictures. It all started with a visit from the …

Pedicures and Cupcakes – The Perfect Start to a Three Day Weekend

A Very Happy (and Successful) Easter 2012
Easter for Stella started on Thursday. We went to our local community center for an Easter party. It was a bit of a struggle getting Stella out of the house, but once she got out of the car and saw the egg hunt, she was excited. Stella loves hunting eggs (throughout the year, she will …
