WHAT a time!

Almost 2 weeks ago, Wayne and I drove up to TN to drop Camilla off to see her Gmaw & PawPaw. On our way home, a guy plowed into the passenger side of my Zuki, totalling it!


I was devastated! I had just paid her off in February, and the odometer had just rolled over 43,000 miles on our way up. Wayne and I both walked away with some bruising (and my entire right side was BLACK and BLUE), but our baby wasn't with us....and we were alive!

So, over these past weeks, we've been searching for cars....driving a rental; recovering from bruises and bumps and soreness; it's been stressful and tough for all of us. Last night though, I finally found a vehicle that I felt I could call mine, and we went through the WHOLE process again of going into debt! I have every intention of paying this one off early too, though!


AND, in all of this, Camilla has just proven (more and more) what an amazing little person she truly is; she kept everyone at the dealership entertained (as they did her too)! Today, my baby is no longer a baby, but my little lady! Happy Birthday, Camilla Lily-mommy and dahdah love you VERY, VERY much!

Thanks everyone! It is mystifying right now....Camilla is actually saying words, and putting them in the correct context (for the most part). Kim, she is GROWING waaaaay to fast already ;)
