Starting New

A LOT has happened since the last time I posted, but I feel like starting this over again from a new perspective. I am now a single parent raising my two beautiful girls. I completely love my family with all my heart. They have been the greatest support to me and my situation. I want to thank all of those that have been there for me..helping me move and giving support to my needs even just to TALK to!! I was sad to leave friends behind but I am happy to be moving forward and starting new.

We were able to have a very enjoyable Christmas this year. The girls and I went to visit the National Christmas Tree in D.C. My camera is broken and I wont be able to take decent pictures for a while. These are from my cell phone! Sorry for the quality, but to still be able to capture an image is amazing.


The National Christmas Tree!
This doesn't even show the details..sorry all!






The girls had lots of fun visiting Santa and checking out his workshop!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!

You seem happy -- and the girls look bigger already! SO cute. I know it was a tough situation for you, and I'm glad you're happy!

Hey Mel! Sorry to hear about all that's happened, but I'm glad you're getting through everything and that you have a great family to help! Your girls look SO cute, by the way. Miss you!

I love seeing pictures of your adorable girls! We sure will miss seeing you and them outside!! I think it is awesome that you are having such a great attitude. Starting new is great. It's been 12 years since my divorce and it now seems like that was all a bad dream. I'm so happy with my husband and kids now!! Good luck!! loveya, Alicia

It's so good to hear how you and your cute little girls are doing. The other day I was thinking about who I could invite over for a play date and I wished you were still here! Sending a big hug your way!! Good luck with your new start!
