    Hey Ali
    Just about to go to bed – it is 11.48pm here in Australia. Thanks for your dedication and inspiration. I check out your blog lots and am totally inspired and motivated to document my life.
    Thanks again and your big boy and little girl are certainly worthy subjects to be remembered in your work.

    I’m so excited about that new blog link! I was so bummed when Simple Scrapbooks (along with several of my other favorite magazines) ceased publication. Thanks for the link!

    i just can’t get over how handsome your son is getting! he really looks a lot like your hubby with a touch of softness from you. your littlest is growing so fast, too- she’s adorable. :)
    (sorry that was all so unrelated to your post, but i couldn’t resist!)
