A Note from Valerie
My son is so observant and this layout depicts just one little story about it. First thing I did to create this layout was journal on the cardstock with my typewriter. Next I stamped and embossed, then added the mist, photo, and embellishments. It all came together rather quickly.

(after just pulling my hair up)
He said: "Mom, you need to put your hair down."
She said: "But I want my hair up."
He said: "But Mom, it's not windy outside."
She said: "We're not outside."

We were outside once when I put my hair up because of the wind. Lucas noticed and asked me to put it back down, but I told him, "no, it's windy." Now, every time I put my hair up, Lucas tells me to put it down "because it's not windy outside."

February Fun Fact
My birthday is in February. This is the year I get to say bye-bye to the twenties.
