this little sure-to-be-scene-stealer up above is my adorable goddaughter, shannon. she also happens to be my youngest cousin (yes, we’re 25 years apart!) who is about to have a very big 2010 complete with the arrival of a new baby brother in may. she seems pretty excited about her flower girl debut already exclaiming “flowers…throw ‘em!” whenever we talk about the wedding. me? i’m pretty darn excited to dress her up in a big ball of tulle and send her down the aisle. i still can’t believe that tiny little creature in the top left corner has turned into the bright bundle of toddler sunshine that i know and love today!
