    Look at that sweet face of joy! You did something that is far better than “dolce far niente”… you took time to savor life with your girl and the results are evident. Plus you got a stylish new hairdo.

    Sigh… I miss those days.

    Ok, so your post made me tear up a bit – aren’t we all guilty of ignoring those moments with our kids? Mine are 18 and 16, and I kinda envy you 🙂 By the way, your hair looks awesome!

    The expression on your daughter’s face says it all. She is in heaven.

    And thanks for the link to Cate’s article. You’ve convinced me that reading this is WAY more important than me finishing my post for tomorrow and going to bed at a reasonable hour. 😉

    Love it. I need to put the to-do list to the side more often.

    And yeah, I agree with Victoria. Let her do your makeup! 🙂

    I, too, read Cate’s post over and over and over. So good!!!! Also, you should wear your hair like that all the time. Especially if it means seeing that sweet face so so happy! Oh and I went for some RANARP goods myself this month! LOVE every single item in that series.

I love your comments!
