After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Lissy's Rock Collecting Dress

I wanted to call this her Cranberry Forest dress, based on the colors.  Perfect for Winter coming up.
Felicity, however, apparently thinks this is the perfect rock collecting dress.
I'm just glad she loves it.

She and I had a hard night last night.  So much so, that I wasn't eager to finish this dress, even though I told her I would.  But after that rough evening, I needed sewing therapy anyways, so I finished it up.  I'm glad I did.  The sewing therapy helped, and when she woke up and saw the finished product, she was thrilled.  We had lots of fun picking out her tights and shoes, brushing her hair, and taking these pictures.....which is why there are a lot of pictures.  All is good again.
Oh my sassy, feisty, handmade loving girl.
