It's a quiet, rainy Saturday, why not dust off the cobwebs at my sad, forgotten blog?
I wonder if a blog is even relevant anymore, with people keeping track of things by way of twitter, instagram, facebook, and probably others I'm not hip enough to know about.
I read a couple of blog posts recently that made me miss the old days of blogging. The days I spent hours sewing and more hours blogging about it. I can't put my finger on what shifted and what happened to that girl. The girl who sewed and blogged. I miss her.
That girl wouldn't be a month late introducing the new man in my life. He's small, pale and extremely handsome.
I'm so proud to introduce Sawyer Mitchell, my son's first born son and my first grandson. He was born on July 2 and as you can imagine, stole my heart at first sight.
It was discovered soon after birth that Sawyer was going to need surgery. Thank God, the surgery went smoothly with no complications, but not knowing what the extent might be, Casey was allowed to come home on emergency leave from Afghanistan. The photo above was taken as he was meeting his son for the first time. It's a little blurry, because I was shaking with excitement, but I think it captures the emotion of the moment.
What's new with you, friends? Let's catch up! If you don't follow me on instagram, please do. That way I can follow you too. I've been able to keep up with a few of my old blogging buddies that way and I'm slightly better about posting there. (only slightly) There's a link over in my sidebar.
