renewed state of mind

This is the year that I anticipate being most casual and minimal with my hair and makeup. I never really struggled to find time to get ready for the day with David. I'd do it while he napped, or wake up a little bit before he did in order to get the day started peacefully and quietly. But with two kids? I imagine it may be more of a challenge....more
