new obsession!

hello!
happy weekend!
i want to just say hi to all my NEW...(and old....)
friends
who are
my
latest
followers!
thanks so much~
it means
so
much
to
me,
to see and hear all the super sweet
comments
you
leave
me.
i
do
appreciate
from the
bottom
of my
big
pink
heart!!

so the blog post title....
i am in
love
with
this:


it goes hand
in
hand
with the
fall
theme.
sweet, cinnamon, spicey.
i
heart
it.
i have
had
two
cups in
the last 1/2 hour.
delightful.
you must
try
if you
heart
tea
like
me!

i also wanted to share a special something with you.
as most of you
know,
princess # 3
is a senior in high school this year.
yes.
a
big
senior.
little does she know she will always be
my
BABY GIRL.
but anywhosies, she is an amazing runner AND soccer player.
well, two years ago, she tore her
anterior cruciate ligament...aka. ACL
her posterial cruciate ligament aka. PCL
AND her
medial cruciate ligament. aka. MCL

she tore these while scrimmaging boys at a soccer camp in PA, at the start of her
sophomore year. boo. out the entire season.
she had surgery to repair and they replaced all those ligaments with cadaver parts.
yes. cadavers.
she went thru about an 8 month recovery period with a brace and physical therapy. she was
total non weight bearing for the first 8 weeks. crutches.
not fun when you are 15.

fast forward beginning of junior year.
tore
her
flipping
meniscus. aka. knee cap.

holy. heck.
again, another surgery. out her entire junior year....
so now,
it is her
senior year.
she JUST finally stopped wearing the brace. literally for two years she has worn this thing.
and she is doing so well. GREAT, actually.
so wonderful that this is what a reporter quoted:



um, awesome. i am so proud.
proud
that even
thru
all she
has been
delt,
she
stuck it
out
and
she
is still
recognized.
~xo~,to my princess#3.

k, sorry....just a bit of mom bragging. with all of her injuries, it is unlikely she will
get a scholarship for soccer....
but
remember
god
has a
plan
and maybe hers is something else.
everything happens for a reason!

k, onto something that made me squeal in pure delight.
uh, please look at post title, date and sidebar titles....
yes. right there.
i, DID it.
i finally got the freaking codes to work.
hollar! new fonts abound. hee hawwww!

My daughter went through just one knee surgery in High School. Your daughter must be one tough cookie.

I love Kevin & Amanda's fonts!
