Seven years ago today I was blessed with my beautiful baby girl. She was a ‘no pain’ baby…I was induced, and I asked for my epidural early. In fact, I was asleep when the nurse came in to tell me she had called the doctor. Anyway, without revealing too much detail, my friends with kids all hate me when I tell her ‘birth story’ (we women do that you know), because it was so quick, easy and painless. A perfect way to bring 6lbs and 12oz of beauty into the world. Happy Birthday Elle!

She’s a free spirit in the truest sense of the word, and lives 100 miles an hour. She has more energy than I have ever seen in one human, but at the same time, she falls to sleep in an instant. She’s full of joy, love, hugs, kisses, laughs, smarts, sweetness, and mischief. Yes, I can see that twinkle in her eye and know she’s up to something. She’s also an expert hula-hooper…it was her talent at her school’s talent show. She even taught me how to hula hoop!

Please keep my family in your thoughts. I have many relatives in Houston. Those closest to the shore have evacuated northward, but not far enough for my liking. My grandaddy and uncle are the closest — 50 miles inland. My grandaddy is old, and since my grandmother passed almost two years ago, he has rapidly grown more frail. I called him Wednesday and asked if he was leaving. He said ‘Sugar, I’ve lived in this house for over 30 years. I’ve weathered many a storm here, and I’m staying put.’ I knew he wouldn’t be going anywhere. He’s the best man I know, and I hope that he stays safe.

Have a great weekend guys!
