HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!!!
And to the person/people who left a gift in my mailbox this week, let me say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Since no name was attached, I won't be able to pay you back for your kindness... so just know I'll be looking to pay it forward. Thank you.
|It's the first day of the 2013 Labor Day Weekend, so I thought I'd have some pictures of the 3 ladies who got it all started. Mom, Labor Day Aunt Not-Janie and Labor Day Aunt Janie|
