I've been searching for a way to cut my hair routine time down for years. I love my hair long, but it takes F O R E V E R to style. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it. It typically takes about 30 minutes to dry and style my hair if I straighten it and longer if I curl it. This mama don't got time for that!
So, Brighten is 17 months old. How did this happen you ask? I assure you that I have no idea. But here we are with a super active toddler! When we moved back in November, I knew we'd need to be really strategic with where Brighten is allowed to roam free. The best (maybe the only good) thing about moving with a 14 month old is that we were able to arrange our new house in a way that gave Brighten plenty of space but sectioned off areas where we don't want her roaming free.
It’s Friday again, thank goodness. These days feel a little reminiscent of last September as we were preparing for Brighten. As we pack up our first home and prepare for the weeks ahead, I can’t help but be a little too sentimental, but also wish we could fast forward about two weeks. I guess things are more fun when you have to work for them, but I have to say that packing up this house would be way more fun if someone else did it.
It's still hard for me to believe that Brighten is O-N-E! On the day of her birthday we spent the day as a family at the McWane Science Center in the Itty Bitty Magic City. She ate birthday cake at Olexa's as we enjoyed anniversary cake and took a great nap in the afternoon :)
