Tell me a story
We went to the airport to pick up my husband. We made a paper chain and took one down, each day. As we were driving to the airport my son says “Lets go pick up daddy before he flys away again soon”. We had made these signs for my husband. He was walking around saying “daddy” to everyone. When my husband go off the plane, and saw our son. My son ran into his arms. There was tears in my sons eyes. Then there were tears in my eyes, and tears in my husbands eyes. We were so happy to have my husband back home.
Now if that story doesn’t put tears in your eyes, I don’t know what will. Rebekah is really talented, and her pieces are more than beautiful.

It would be perfect all the time, with my leggings 🙂 haha.
