Hadley Dress for Baby


I have a new Neice! I usually make blankets but this time I thought I would try my hand at this pattern.
It's The Hadley Dress by Create Kids Couture.
The pattern was easy enough but really got lost on the tie sash step. I could not for the life of me figure out when I was supposed to stitch I together. I'm sure it was just me.
If I was a new enough sewer I would not of been able to wing it like I did.
Can't wait to see it on her! 
I'm sure the fit will be perfect.

Pillowy French Bread


So I have been baking bread now for 7 years now and this is The Best Recipe Yet
The kneading process in this one has to be what makes the difference.
My husband keeps complimenting me on it.
The soft texture is so beautiful haha
My son is sick today so during the last 10 minute rest I let it rest for more like 30 minutes
I also cut the recipe in half and just made one loaf.
Happy baking

Kuddos to The Baker Upstairs 

My Husband took a bite out of the top for no apparent reason. 
I am just as confused about this as you are.

I Was A Mother


My darling  daughter,
Every year I am one year closer to seeing your sweet face. I know you existed. No one can convince me otherwise. No one else's agendas, no political footing, no one can take the knowledge of you away.  No one else's acknowledgment of you or ignoring of you makes you go away.
You were a baby, my sweet baby. You grew in my belly until you were a small bump.
For 12 weeks your little body formed and your soul was inside of me.
I never enjoyed being used so much. :)
Your soul.
That so nice to type sweetie.
One day, oh darling, one sweet day we will meet face to face inside Heavens gates.
I know you are waiting for me and I am so grateful to God that Heavens time is not Earths time.
I'll see you soon.



It does not matter that on this side of heaven I never got to tie your shoes or nurse you. None of that makes me a mother. You made me a Mother. Love you
