.....from me

When I was a little girl, younger than I can even remember, I heard the song "You Are My Sunshine" and apparently did not like how it ended. I believed that the final line - "please don't take my sunshine away." - was incomplete and so I added "from me" onto the end. My family obviously found this adorable because they NEVER told me it wasn't how the song actually ended. It wasn't until I was in HIGH SCHOOL and sang the song to a friends young sibling that I realized it wasn't how everyone else sang the song. My friends thought it was hilarious, I was humiliated, and when I confronted my mother she said "how was I supposed to know you didn't know?"

Anyways, it's still one of my favorite songs to sing to my children, probably because it's one of the few I actually know, and because my children really are my sunshine. They are the light in my world and my reason for dragging myself out of bed every morning. Today I found a beautiful, sweet, simple necklace that I want with every ounce of my being... here's the link ... because it's just so perfect. I asked if I could have it for Mothers Day next year, but I hope my darling husband gets it for me sooner... (hint, hint!!)

I think I could spend a lot of money on products from that website, and not just on myself. I think those are some of the most precious pieces of jewelry I have ever seen, I'm a sap though.

Liam loves it when I sing him that song but HATES HATES HATES the second verse. He thinks it is too sad! Anytime I start singing it he begs me to only sing the first verse. PS I love the necklace too, good luck with the gentle nudge to your hubby.
