  1. Beautiful listing :)

    I'm so glad you are all doing okay - I've missed you, ha! I've been praying (most especially on Mondays) but I will specifically add Seth's easy breathing to my list.

    Sleep well!

  2. His first deep breath...oh yes, this is a gift and must be on the list. we too have had too many days and nights of shallow air. been breathing deep for 2 months now...
    so glad to see you linked up to Ann again.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
