It's a girl!


Private Collection

When my sweet niece, Hailey, was born, her parents gave everyone a box of chocolates. The pink ribbon and the tiny gold, baby carriage announced the arrival of their new little girl. Now, I am not terribly sentimental about material things, but when it comes to my nieces and nephews, I totally am.  I love to save all of their little trinkets, but it is my auntly duty, right? I think so!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!
