There is a Birthday in the House… Happy Birthday to Hood #1

September 22nd, 2015 · 20 Comments

And just like that I became the mum of an eighteen year old. I cannot fathom how that happened but I can say I am beyond thrilled about celebrating…

To the guy that can almost always be found behind a camera, or drawing or reading… you can find him on instagram.

I have no idea how time has flown or how you have grown so fast… eighteen years sure did fly by.
