|a pretty a day is here and away|

Documenting life's beauty, as seen through the eyes of a lady blessed with everything a girl could dream of, and more: five gorgeous kids, patient and providing husband, an adorable dog, a very cheeky frog, and still time enough to get crafty and creative in the kitchen or with my trusty needles, thread and yarn!
The joys of being Queen of the household! Rejoice, and the world joins in!

Hey Mimi, you're so fine! You're so fine you blow my mind!

I love watching my kids grow older and just more and more beautiful and talented.

Mimi's just turned 17, and we're all so proud of her stellar showing at the O levels!

Here's the Mimi of Yesteryear, aged 6,
always drawing stares for that beautiful head of silky jet-black hair (if I weren't her mother, I'd be sooo envious!) and porcelain-doll look. Not to mention her penchant for adorning her hair with all sorts of hair accessories. I remember a day when she went to school with probably ten or so different hair clips, and another day when she insisted she wanted "Allegra's Hair" - this puppet girl on an evening TV show who had hair in ponytails ALL OVER HER HEAD. I sighed, obliged, and survived the fits of giggles that ensued.

Here's the Mimi of Today, newly-minted SEVENTEEN
No prizes for guessin' what her birthday wish was this year! ;)

To the World's Most-Pampered Middle Child,
Happy Seventeenth, make good use of the opportunities Life brings!

I love you, Mimi!

Your mom, best pal and occasional confidante
