Her Birthday looked SO full of what EVERY child's special day should look like! After a long day in NICU..taking care of "abstinence" babies...( Withdrawing from various drugs) it warms my heart so much to see what a completely majical childhood experience you are giving to your little baby girl! I have said it before...but if the world were FULL of people like you and Andy..what a wonderful world it would be! XXXOOO I LOVED her dress by the way...she rocked it...and the hat!

This is JUST the thing I was looking for Amanda!!! Perfect timing! I even have what looks to be that VERY shade in a lovely madelinetosh! Thank you for also including the link for the beautiful shawl pin! I was just catching up here this morning, and I know I am late to respond on your post the other day....First, let me just say it saddens me that ANYONE would utter a negative word about you. I found you YEARS ago...right after gaining custody of my first grandchild...I can only say, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed...and then I found you. From the beginning your gentle ways, and nurturing ideas have helped me tremendously in raising a new little one...who is now 12, and bigger than me! We have every book you wrote, and also covet our treasured Taproot magazines! Thank you for ALL that you do and share....You are absolutely one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL people in this world!!!!
