My Girl

"Mama always said, life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
-Forrest Gump
Isn't that JUST the truth!?!

You really never do know what you are going to get in life! But, good golly I am soooo glad that this girl showed up in my life 8 years ago today. Such a sweet, fun girl who is growing into such a beautiful young lady; so willing to help and learn and grow. Oh, how my heart beats outside my chest for this doll. She runs around and I see my heart just tagging along in her pocket, hangin' off the bottom of her shoe, or whipping around in her hair.

Eight is half way to sixteen! Time is moving too quickly. I am not ready for eight!! I kind of liked 8 months, or 16 months or even 2 years. Eight Years Old, already?!! Well, I hope that you have the hap, hap, happiest birthday my precious one! We will do plenty of special things to mark the day you turned eight. . . even if we are not in our house, but in a trailer instead!!
Watch out world... she is havin' a FUN day, today!! :)


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Hope your day is FILLED with FUN!! We all miss you!!

  2. Happy, Happy eighth Birthday Branch!
    Know your mama has lots of fun things planned for your special day!
    Such a sweet post Elm! But I am really bummed because none of your pictures are coming through to my computer. :0(
    If you get a chance, could you email an address to mail cards, etc.?
