For starters....Aprons!

One of the things I've started doing for myself recently is sewing. My mom bought me a sewing machine about 4 years ago and it just sat. We passed it back and forth a couple times to make cutains and what-not but I never really found something I liked to do. I tried to make purses once, but they turned out lacking.

This time, I started making aprons. The first one I made was a little funny, but cut me some slack here. No one ever officially taught me how to use a sewing machine.































In my opinion, the second one came out a lot better. What do ya'll think??

My little photogenic sweetheart...






While visiting my mother in Tifton, Ga this past week, a photographer named Hope Baldwin offered to take my daughter, Layla Grace's, picture. I dont know how I made such a beautiful child. Here are some of my favorites...




For some reason, Tifton feels like home to me. I lived there for the first year of Layla's life while my husband was deployed. It may be the nice people... or the hometown feeling. More on Tifton when I shout the Lankford later.
