Love at First Sight


Tears of joy fell from my eyes

as I gazed into hers

it was love at first sight

My new little granddaughter Noelle Marie, only moments old.

❤ ❤ ❤


Hi friends!  🙂

I don’t have much time to write at the moment, but I wanted to send out this quick post to share the happy news that my sweet little granddaughter has arrived!  Omygosh you guys, she’s sooo precious, I love her so much!

She was born via emergency c-section last Wednesday, and boy was that ever traumatic.  I’ll try and share more about it later – right now I’m a bit sleep deprived.  😉

But I’m happy to report that both mother and baby are doing well, and are here at home, gradually getting settled in.

It’s hard to put into words all of the emotions I’ve experienced over this past week, but the one constant is overwhelming love…


I will try and stop by your blogs soon to catch up on what has been going on in your world.  Until then… be well, much love, and many blessings to all of you!


Here are a few more photos of my little blessing…


“I think, therefore I am”   😉


I give my grandma’s arms a “thumbs up!”


Oh you know… just “hanging out” with my grandma


Morning snuggle time at home ❤


Look grandma, no hands!

Warm Embrace


Beyond that eastern horizon

beauty, passion and love beckon me

And as dawn’s light kisses my eyes awake

I reach out toward you

longing to be wrapped in your warm embrace

Happy Birthday Baby


An unknown future

filled with hopes and fears

will include lots of laughter, and some tears

You’re giving birth

to a life brand new

not only for her, but also for you

Beautiful daughter

such a precious treasure to me

I have no doubt a wonderful Mother you’ll be

24 years ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, and now that baby is a grown woman getting ready to give birth to a baby girl of her own.  It will be any day now.  My heart is so full…

I wish I had more time to ponder, reflect, and share about all I’m feeling at the moment, but we’re off to celebrate the day!



I know this photo is quite different from those I usually share and I hesitated whether or not to share it, but I love how it turned out, and my daughter does too – she’s actually been waiting for me to share it.   So I thought on her birthday as she’s so close to giving birth herself would be the perfect time.

Happy birthday baby!  I love you!

Dawn Breaks


Dawn breaks

through  frosted glass

shattering the darkness

on a new winter’s day

Feather Light


Feather light

images of you fall softly from out of my nighttime dreams

into the wintry dawn as I arise

Awakening my heart with love

and with hope

that one day you’ll fall out of my dreams and gently into my arms

embracing each other forever

feather light
