Break's over.

So.....I've been on a bit of a blogging break. Why, you ask? [Admit it, you asked.] 

Because it was my last summer with my girl before we can no longer deny she's an adult.

Because I haven't been feeling particularly interesting. 
Because work has been sucking the life outta me.
Because adding one more thing to my to do list ... just. no.

And yet, here I am! 

At the end of a summer that was full of change and experiences and fun and events, perhaps I should just bite the bullet and start a little series of recaps. 

Going all the way back to mid-May, we had this happen at our house. 
Let's pretend I got everyone's permission to show this picture.
We had Prom Central here. Two of these girls got their hair and makeup done here, then the other two joined us for snacks and pictures before heading off to prom at Texas Stadium. (I know, that's not the real name now, but I don't care.)

This is my baby girl and the dress she picked. Remember the also-rans? She picked the right one.

I do not even know how this happened. She was a toddler 14 minutes ago. 

Once there, they met up with friends and apparently had a great time! Midnight "breakfast" at Denny's (or iHop, I forget) and sleeping in on Saturday. 

We've been so blessed with our girl and her friends. They are such good girls who have their priorities straight and know what they want in life. I can't wait to see what they all do in the next few years!

I could make this one entry about 10,000 words to catch up, but let's not. If the break is really over, I've got a half-dozen more things to post about. Here's hoping my days calm down enough that I'll actually do it!

I've missed you!


  1. She's just beautiful, Traci! You must be so proud. Hope she's going off to school somewhere close. :)

    1. Julie, she's going to UNT, about 30 minutes from us, and living at home for at least this year. I'm sure the commute will get old, but she's gonna give it a shot!
