Father's Day Photo Shoot

My sweet friend, Lacy, took these pictures for us the other day. She says she is "learning" how to take pictures. I think she's already super good! Check out her site Thanks again, friend!

My hair looks like a lion in this one. Raaaaar!

Happy Daddy's Day

It was hotttttt outside and he was getting sweaty by this point.
That's why his hair is so nice and curly!

Why is it that we hurt the ones we love the most?

Why is it, that when I am upset, frustrated and just plain cranky, that I take it out on my husband?

Why is this such a hard lesson to learn?

Why do I do it over and over and over, and then spend the next few days absolutely hating myself?

You would think that I would learn my lesson...learn to bite my tongue...learn to express my frustration in a constructive way....but no. I don't. I continue to spit fire in the heat of the moment and then cry in the shower.

I apologize. I tell him how wrong, mean, and ugly I was. I ask for forgiveness that I don't deserve. The thing is, I know he forgives me...but I still hurt him....and that's worse than anything....anything in the world. And bleepin bleep....I did it again.
