growing up...

This week.....my favorite girl.....and my favorite man are getting a bit older.........






..which means i have some planning to do...... I am a tad bit behind in the party planning committee....it's not my fault.......even though i was voted HEAD of this committee.....i just didn't realize what goes into being in charge..and to tell you the truth.....i lack delegating skills.......or should i ask Fin to pick out the tunes for the party......or should i have Mason choose the menu?

See.......i didn't think so......


So...since i will be a BIT tied up doing some planning.......i thought i would give away one of my favorite butterfly pendant necklaces.........Yes....you heard me......................a little token from me to you......

and don't you fret....I shall be back soon.
oh...and new tunes added today...just listen...
