Send A Wish Upon A Star

"Lullaby"
Send a wish upon a star
Do the work and you'll go far
Send a wish upon a star
Make a map and there you are
Send a hope upon a wave
A dying wish before the grave
Send a hope upon a wave
For all the souls you failed to save
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
Send a question in the wind
It's hard to know where to begin
So send the question in the wind
And give an answer to a friend
Place your past into a book
Put in everything you ever took
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well

Something about Rusty breaks my heart into a million pieces. Do all moms feel like this? I could weep with the pain in my chest I feel for this girl...watching her grow. She's finding her own style now, and rebelling against "norms" and making me more proud than I ever thought I could be.

Oh How I Miss You All....

The Carroll kids were some of the first people we met when we moved to Virginia. Niamh, the oldest, still has quite an accent from Ireland and for some reason when I met her I started talking in an accent too...badly. I called myself on it and said "I don't know why I do that, talk with an accent when I am around people with different accents. I really shouldn't." She goes, "No, it's dreadful." I knew I loved her from that moment on. Hannah is just such a happy kid. She's always in a good mood and kind of always has food on her face and a song in her heart and doesn't really care what you think of her. I wish we could all be like Hannah. Gabriel is...hmmm. You can always tell where Gabriel has been, because as my Rory likes to say, he "de-recorates". We would often find dog food in our shoes, and our coasters in the oddest places. He says things like "diabolical" and "interesting" while doing things that fit both of those descriptions. He is a handful, and some days I am not sure how his momma does it, but boy, is he cute! I think that may have saved his life a time or two. It helps that he LOVES her more than words can say. I miss these kids so much..but I really miss their mom. I hope they are all happy and snug back in Ireland...while I drink my Diet Coke alone over here..sniff sniff.

Get In the Green!!

So. I took these photos for prom back in May and never posted them (because I am sucking at life). These two are not only a gorgeous couple who make high school dances look effortless and classy, they are the NICEST couple in the world. I am sure they were confused about my obsession with all the greenery...(I am used to more of the desert landscape) but they put up with my shoving them into the woods. Ian and Rianna...I heart you guys.

I can save you 15% on car insurance....

There was a gecko exhibit at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, MT when we went, so I took my camera and tried my hand at gecko photography. I think I will stick with people (although they DO hold very still).

Somebody Stop Me!!!!

This is the Molloy family. They looked like models, dressed like fashionistas, and acted like lifelong friends. I hearted them.
