beauty sleep

beauty sleep
is all about utilizing your resources...
even though i'm not sleeping as much as i'd like,
i've never felt more beautiful than i do with her in my arms,
and brennan at my feet.
i love my wrinkles.
the ones that my children are leaving behind.
little pieces of them on my face.
happy.
healthy.
no money,
but still wealthy.
i think she has my eyes.

I love the giant bows/flowers that are ever present on little miss max's head. Her eyes do look like they'll stay blue-just like her momma's

I love that! I am never happier than when I have my family around me. I know it sounds so cliche, but it is so true. And all these gray hairs? I keep them with joy.

P.S. What a beauty she is!
