I honestly look forward to Leila’s birthday all year. For me, it marks not only another wonderful year of being a mom, but it also marks the beginning of spring and is twice the celebration as we have both Leila and Sawyer to spoil. This year it was a little bit more like Christmas since Thea and Quincy also received some gifts…Quincy who was only two days away from his own birthday, and Thea who likes to steal other’s new toys. It was tons of fun watching the kids enjoy each other, and their new things and I particularly enjoyed the time spent with my awesome family!

"What I want to say to you is that sometimes life catches you by surprise and you feel unequipped to handle what it brings you, but every bit of life you've lived before that moment equips you to live through it. That's what I would give to you."
-Fanni Victoria Green-Lemons (talking to her daughter)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, there is nothing more to it than that.
"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
