Every now and then I will thumb through a magazine and see a picture from the Cottage Style shoot a few years ago. The photographer and publisher own the rights to all those pictures, so I never know when one might pop up. This one (of our master bedroom) is in the latest edition of Vintage Style.
This one is speeding faster and faster towards his teen years each day. Burst of emotions come out of nowhere- extreme giddiness, frustration, sadness, and silliness all bubble to the surface and spill over, fast and furious. I see so much of myself in him that I feel the need to apologize to my mother. And thank her.
