I cannot believe our little Sosie is a year-old!!! mostly because, I don’t remember what my heart felt like without her in it. and it seems I have loved her for a lifetime more than a year. she is my favorite thing. and nothing makes me happier than her. i did not know a love this true till I met my Sosie Sue.

in case you were wondering, if you spend 3 days in chicago celebrating a friend’s birthday with lots of eating, lots of drinking, lots of eating, lots of happiness, and lots of eating, your pants will no longer fit. like, not in a good way. but like in a I-can’t-button-my-pants-so-I’ll-just-get-on-my-plane-home-with-my-pants-unbuttoned kind of way. which is super sexy, in case you were wondering…

i’m not really advocating visiting LA, cause I think it’s about as un-user friendly as it gets… especially for a tourist. but the trip from wherever you are to here might be worth it just for a Philippe’s french dipped sandwich. and if you want to look like a local, don’t stand in the line closest to the door. and get your sandwich double-dipped. with a side of macaroni salad. and a pickle. and thank me later.
i get my sandwich triple-dipped…boom!
Sosie loves pickles!!!
sweet treats on your way out…
Sosie loves having lunch with her Uncle James!!!
what do you say when someone invites you to a One Direction concert? “OMG, YES!!!,” obviously! i had so much fun teeny-bopping with my friends…and a million screaming pre-teen girls…oh, and of course Justin Bieber (turns out the Biebes loves himself some One D). lots of fun, lots of dancing, lots of training bras, and lots and lots of really really high pitched screaming. one d forever!
what direction? one direction!
