I have a six year old.
What. I’m in complete disbelief. Gavin keeps blossoming into this fierce, intelligent, human with humor only a mother can love, but a heart all can appreciate. This boy has taught me too many hard lessons in life, some to his disservice. I hate that it had to be that way, but, that's parenthood. (Click to continue…)
WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU!?

If you need to know anything about me at all, it’s that
I LOVE MAKEUP.
Okay. That may be an understatement.
Photography is one of the few things the increases in value over time.
If you don’t believe me, ask your grandma.
And to further prove my point, I did this exact thing when I visited my grandparents’ home one afternoon.
