How was your weekend?
Mine was just lovely.
Time with good friends, shopping, crafting, bunco-ing, eating, movie watching, flea marketing, and spray painting.
So good and so needed.

My ballet loving, biggest girl lost her very first tooth.  An exciting and slightly terrifying milestone.  Then she proceeded to lose the little tooth that she lost.
Tears ensued.  Lots of tears.  Even from me.  I wanted to keep that cute and creepy little tooth.
But I concocted an extravagant tale and reassured her that the tooth fairy knew where it was, even if we didn't, and that she was still sure to come.
Come she did, leaving a trail of sparkly glitter all over the pillow and sweet face of my beautiful girl.

In other happy, sweet news, registration opens today for the lovely that is sure to be Blog Sugar.
Come join us and be encouraged, affirmed, inspired, while soaking in the sweetness that can be had in this strange and beautiful world of blogging.

The speaker line up is crazy amazing.  Did I mention that there will be cupcakes?  Or that insecurity is not invited, so kick it to the curb.  If I can, anyone can.  Promise!

So grab your ticket quick!  They are limited and going fast.
I'd love to meet you.

Hope you have a lovely and sweet day!
