We met for the first time 6 years ago today.

He was perfect.  Everything I had dreamed of and so much more.

I was young, delirious, clueless, and head-over-heels in love.  I’ve kind of been smitten every since~

Those were the days; just the two of us hanging out together in our little house in the peach orchard.

Those big blue eyes wide open… taking the whole world in.

He’s not a reckless guy

But he loves life and he wants to see it all.

Try everything. go all the time. explore. meet new people

He wants to know how the world works.

He is anything but aloof.  He has a huge heart and a tenderness that melts me.

He notices everything.

He loves big and sometimes he falls big, but it never seems to leave him gun-shy.

I pray that somehow he holds onto that love, that wonder, that tenderness, that strength~

Happy Birthday my love!  Your Daddy and I couldn’t be more proud of you!

*You may or may not have guessed that there is no Show & Tell Wednesday this week.  Sorry!  I’ve been working on some projects but they aren’t finished yet, and I didn’t want to rush them.  It should be ready for next Wednesday.  I’m sorry some of you (make that most of you) have been missing my Show & Tell posts.  I’m afraid it was a case of operator malfunction.  I was typing my Show & Tells ahead of time and saving the post as “private”, but when I changed it to “public” I neglected to change the date and the time on the post.  Which is why they weren’t showing up in anyone’s news feed.  After 4 years on Xanga I’m still learning the ropes :)   Lesson learned!

Have a lovely evening   ~  April

    Happy birthday to Jude!!! and only a few more days of school and then “congrats on being a big 1st grader”!

    The Wed. posts did show up in my feed just a ways down the list wherever they fell in time with posts from others.

    Happy birthday to your little man! What a beautiful baby he was, wow! I can see how you were smitten! :) I love to see your delight in your son. I think he must be a very secure person, because it’s obvious he is so loved!  He’s a blessed boy!

    Happy Birthday to your little guy!
    I did the same thing with private posts awhile back and then making them public and then wondering why no one commented.  :)   Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on:)

    @grace2be - Thanks Amber!  There’s just something about those blue-eyed boys… am I right? 

    @foreveranoatneygirl_n2Hisown - I don’t usually let a full week pass without a post but the week just flew by!  I don’t think I hardly picked up my camera and the sewing room has been rather quiet.  School is out in another week so hopefully we can relax a little.

    @celebration_of_life - A first grader!!  I can’t believe it. Will I see you at the Walk for Life on Sat.?  I’ll be face painting.

    @SheilaPeer - Thank you so much for your kind words!  Jude is the oldest of three.
