A hundred reasons to love a girl.....

Friday, July 9, 2010

I said, "sometimes the girls can be cynical" and he said, "they get that from their Mama"....How did I get to be so cynical? I seriously have to work on that.....

My darling niece Alexa wrote a new blog post. It's great. Actually, she is the happiest, most fun, cheerfullest, darlingest, fabulous, sunny person I have ever EVER met. When I wake up every morning, I'm going to strive to be more like Miss Lex. She's the kind of girl that makes you want to be a better person. And you don't meet too many people like that in a lifetime.
