Little Girls

Thank Heaven for little girls
For little girls get bigger every day!
Thank Heaven for little girls
They grow up in the most delightful way.
One of the things I love most about the Southern way of life, is the great value that is placed on little girls being encouraged to be, well...little girls! Femininity is celebrated right alongside spunk and strength. That perfect blend of lady-like manners and the ability to bait a hook with the best of them! It seems to me that we lose something when we take away what is inherently "girly" about little girls.

My own little girl loves bows and dress-up and is having her first Princess Party this weekend. But she is not afraid to get dirty and you better look out when you wrestle her because she has some moves that rival the WWF!
So, in honor of her 3rd Birthday on Friday (sniff, wipe tear, sniff), I am dedicating this week to celebrating Little Girls and will be showcasing Lauren's room as well as revealing my latest project. It has something to do with this...

To tide you over 'till then, here is a snippet of things to come...

And, get the Kleenex box ready because I will be sharing a little bit of my journey to motherhood and how Miss Lauren came to be apart of our family!

The little rocking chair is darling...and I can't wait to see more of the room with that gorgeous window seat! BEAUTIFUL!
