I've been spending a lot of time shipping lately. This is something I used to do all the time. Every spare moment I had, I was either sewing or shipping, and then later even more shipping.

l-r: Hazel, Olivia, Henry, Mackenzie. The girls are 16, 10 and 5. It's like the three stages of being a girl. <3
Last night our schedules aligned and Ryan brought his kids over for dinner, hanging out and Wii fun.

If later you see a photo of me on fire in the snow with a Viking helmet and a dress made out of library card catalogs, now you'll know I agreed to it. . . . → Read More: Oh, also…
This is Ryan. He's a photographer so he's used to being behind the camera, but not in front of it. He's getting better at letting me take his picture, see? I think I'm getting better at letting go of my intimidated inhibitions and taking his picture too. It's all working out nicely.
