This sweet blueberry smoothie is perfect for breakfast or even as a great afternoon delight! How was your weekend? Granddaddy and Grandmama came to visit John Grayson so we had a fun filled weekend. I also painted those bookcase crates for his nursery since they were here to entertain him (AKA time for Lauren to get stuff done on her to do list).

Time is Precious


I think back to his newborn photo shoot and it makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time. Our wonderful photographer Kristeen Marie  told me to keep John Grayson awake for 2 hours before we came and to feed him right when we got there to get those cute milk drunk pictures like these. Isn’t he adorable? Sadly take one of the photo shoot did not produce this. JG started the first photo shoot out by pooping on Continue Reading…
