two

I imagine it happened quietly, routinely and without a lot of fanfare. But it was the start of something wonderful. Beginnings are strange and magical things....full of expectations, excitement and a little mystery. You can never be sure where they are going to lead you...which ones are going to be the most important, the most meaningful. This one was both of those things.

Dang - I was too late. Staci stole my idea, soooooooooooo, I'll just have to be content with saying " Happy Happy Birthday Sophie. May your life be filled with happiness and joy, and gook things to sniff."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SOPHIE !! The pictures are great.

I truly wish I could get a dog but can't in my apartment!!

About the name thing: When you said that Andrea meant 'heart of a man' well, one of my middle names is Andrea, my other middle name is Aeron which is a guys name (named after a guy friend of my parents) and the Shana coming from Shane. Maybe I was a man in my last life? Ick. Thanks for sharing about that!!!!

Have a great day!!
