I wanted to mention the Target $1 bin. There are always goodies for holidays. But it gets picked over fast. On Monday, I bought the heart sign/plaque for $1. It looks even better in a frame.
Funny thing is, this is the exact advice I gave my daughter last week. It's a piece of advice that is hard to give. Kind of like giving your own heart away. I should be used to it by now. My girl was born with a voice, a little independent thing with a dreaming heart. She started picking out her own clothes around age 4 and by 6, there were no more pink rooms. Speaking of which... Many of you have already seen this, but in case you haven't, Ms. Smarty Pants, Laura just completed a nursery for her great niece. Look how adorable it is.
Isn't this presh? There are a ton more cute details in this room. Go check them out!
If only they could stay little forever...
So what do you tell a girl who talks about quitting college? I've already gone over all the logic. The best I could say is "follow your heart." She knows the other choice is a job, (worked since age 16 so no fear there.) Discouragement has set in after finding out a lot more hours are needed than anticipated. I remember being frustrated in college myself. They list classes on the degree plans, then don't offer them. Like I told her, it's part of the process. Aggravating, but educating yourself. She's a fighter. I never thought "quit" would be in her vocabulary.
