It Was One of Those Days.

It was one of those days where the creative itch hit us all, and having the flexible schedule of homeschooling showed itself to be most appealing. It was one of those days where in an instant, papers, scissors, glue, sparkles, buttons, stickers, felt, and rickrack were strewn about the table, leaving no space uncovered. A day where the three of us {Libby, my mama, and I} let our creative spirits loose and began creating Valentine's decorations of all kinds. Glittery garlands, trees with little hearts hanging on it, and tiny candle arrangements. 

It was one of those days that was full of daydreaming as usual. A day with fishtails. A day with writing class and seeing friends, working out, and listening to an amazing speech on abortion. It was a speech that made me think and fight for what is right, if only I can find a way.

Today was a day of being filled with pain and joy, and having light bulb moments and being utterly confused with myself. This is the day that the Lord has made, and I have rejoiced and been glad in it. Finally, to put a good end to it, I shall set out a saucer of milk and a plate of graham crackers and snack cozily in my bed, as the creative adventurers listen to The Hunger Games together. Again.

Love, a hug, and fishtail curls,

Lindsey Nicole

I think the last time our parents saw each other was before you and I were born. Also, I remember years ago reading your Christmas letter and being completely intrigued by your family. My mom told me that she thought you and I would be kindred spirits - so true! You are beyond lovely, Lindsey!
