I can't believe it's been 10 years already...I remember it like it just happened yesterday. I didn't have any babies yet...in fact I wasn't even in my last trimester with Nathanael. I was sitting at home watching the news, having a cup of tea and in the middle of laundry.

I sat and cried most of the day. Thinking of families who've now lost loved ones due to the selfishness and repulsiveness of the people willing to take not only their lives, but the lives of millions of others. Not stopping to think that maybe these people had husbands, wives, babies, kids, moms, dads, and any other branch of relationship a human can have. No they saw terror. The way to bring the biggest terror possible.

It wasn't like a that for America. No. I saw it as a reason to bring the entire country together and fight back against these people so willing to take away from people they didn't even know. We banded together like a giant family. Consoling those who've lost, comforting any fears that were there, and standing strong....Together.

Watching the news today brings back all of those feelings. My eyes are welling up with tears and just listening to the stories is just heart breaking.

They tried to break us. We didn't break...we got stronger. I thank all of the firefighters, our soldiers, the courageous men and women in the towers trying to help, on flight 93, all of the men and women in the Pentagon and the families who've lost and a country who has bonded and come together as a family. Thank you of all of your courage, bravery and strength.


You might ask..."Who are you?"

Good evening my lovely bloggians! (yes...I just made that up)

I've missed you all dearly. I know...you want to know...Who the heck are you? Oh duh...I know...It's been a long time! Since I last posted a few things have changed!

First...my awesomeness has gotten even awesomer...haha (also a new word.) I have decided that the super dark brown hair must go....considering that I've had dark hair for forever...and NO that is NOT my natural hair color. I am actually a dirty blond. So with saying that I have decided to go back to the blond, but a PRETTIER blond, because honestly I don't like the color of my hair. SO...I'm making it prettier...well actually my fabulous stylist is making it pretty.

ignore the crazy 80's wear and silly photo....I love my friends....(and I know...you can't really see the blonde yet...be patient!)
Second...Oh and yes, because I wasn't nerdy enough....I have succumbed to the eye doctor finally and purchased glasses...headaches gone, terrible blurry vision gone...awesomeness reinstated! I must say I'm liking nerdy chic though...I'm kind of in love with it! :)

Things have been going completely fabulously this summer in the life of "Love, Hadleigh Designs" as well as myself...We have been completely blessed and things have just been smooth sailing. For the most part :) Every life has a bump now and then right?

So Studley takes me to the Apple store and we get my iPad fixed for free...because seriously Apple is amazing. Followed by Studley buying "us" (yes me) a new iMac. I'm officially in love. Amazing. That's all I can say. Like best machine ever. (aside yes from the innovative iPad, which I adore to a million amazing little pieces) 

My kids have officially started back to school...loooooovin' that I'll be getting more one on two time with Hadleigh and Brien. :) We'll be learning and crafting up a storm this fall...so hopefully you'll be able to see. I have a new project in the works for the kids' teachers as a Thanks for Being awesome teachers...so stay tuned! :)

Ok I'm out of here for now, but believe me...I will be back.........sooner than later :)
