A Bead Tutorial

A Bead Tutorial

We were in Target about a year ago and Selah saw a little girl with beads in her hair and absolutely fell in love. We ended up going over to the little girl and telling her how beautiful her beads were. Before we had even walked away, Selah said, "Mommy, you HAVE to get me beads in me hair like that beautiful wittle girl."

If you've been around here for a while, you know caring for Selah's hair has been a journey, one I'm honored to be on. So many people have asked me over the years, "How are you going to care for her hair?" And my response is always the same, "I'm going to learn." Caring for her skin and hair, is me loving her well. And I'm going to do everything in my power to love this sweet girl well. Even though I've learned so much over the last four years, I still know I have much more to learn. But I'm happy with the progress. 

So shortly after that Target trip, we went to Hobby Lobby and got some beads. I had no idea what to get but she liked the color combination of the bag she picked out, and they beads were large enough I knew her hair would slide through them. We came home, washed her hair, and got to work.

A Magical Kingdom

A Magical Kingdom

We all have this deep longing for a magical kingdom far, far away. A castle. A princess. Maybe some mice friends. And a prince that comes to our rescue. We most definitely long for a fairy tale ending. 

I grew up like most little girls I know, obsessed with Cinderella. So Brandon and I saved for over a year and took our little family to Disney. I was 100% more excited than my kids. Partly, because Micah started crying in the car after we passed Costco on our way there, because he said Mickey Mouse was at Costco. He had no concept for Disney World. And sweet Selah, she just wanted to see "all the princesses and ride the Disney World bus." (Apparently she saw that on a commercial.)
