I have been missing my Mom alot lately.
July will make 11 years since she past away, it still feels like yesterday.
This past year seems to have been the hardest year so far.
I have always loved anything old.
There is an old house in Jefferson, near the old court house (now the Ashe History Museum) that I have always loved since I can remember.
The old house has really deteriorated the past decade from neglect.
Every morning when I pass buy it I think I hope somebody will buy the house and fix it up before it deteriorates to the point of having to be torn down.

I am sure that is where my Mom would of shopped for a nice shower gift too.
I always try and pick the softest fabrics I can find for babies, in soft colors.
I just can't stand to see little babies in jeans, because I just know that can't be comfortable.
I settled on several gowns, a sleeper, one outfit, and a sweet little lamb toy/rattle, and a set of Aveeno baby products.
I think my Mom would have approved.
My Mom had talent for wrapping gifts.
Mine are not quite as good as hers, but my love to wrap gifts is something I got from my Momma.
I can't make it the shower on Saturday, so I went ahead and dropped off this gifts tonight.
It made me smile when my family complimented me on my wrapping and said it reminded them of my
