It's my last year in my 20's! Boy that went fast!! I have been thinking and I really want to do something memorable with this year of my life. I thought I might just try to sort of check off things/thoughts or just blog about things that mean something to means since I have neglected this blog oh so badly...I thought I would document this experience through my sweet life.
1. I sold my breast milk!! Sounds weird i know! My first experience with helping a babies through pumping milk for the mothers to fed them. I first sold to a mother in Ohio, a small amount to try...15 oz, I charged 1.50 a 0z and listed my ad through onlythebreast.com. It was crazy the shipping...next day...dry ice...very expensive! I felt bad for the mother paying so much. I have not heard back from her, probably to expensive!
Next, a inquiry from a man....I thought okay, maybe it's a gay couple?? Umm no! He wanted a wet nurse. Ewww sorry buddy! Not interested. Then a mom contacted me about her son who was very sick....I read his story and wanted to do everything I could to help him! Baby Eli, I met the mom today and handed her everything I had stored and promised to pump as much as I could, without depriving my sweet Claire bear. Wow! It's amazing, I feel so good that my milk can help this little guy feel better. I am so glad I decided to look into donating/selling breast milk. It could save his life and for that I am grateful!

Butch and Carol were married this past saturday at Dennis Vineyards in Locust. It was a beautiful ceremony overlooking the vineyards and reception to follow in there events center, A Place in the Vineyard. THe rain didnt bring this ceremony down...A BEAUTIFUL cross was built by Butch's brother Gary and stood at the alter, where the couple professed there love with heart felt written vows. The bride and groom were joined by there close family, friends, and their mothers (both in there 90's). It was very touching to see both mothers escorted in by their nurses, eyes filled with tears of joy for the couples new LOVE.
Their bridal party consisted of one flower girl, who did a EXCELLENT job :) The reception followed with a full amazing dinner, cake cutting, and dancing. LJoyce Photography was thrilled to be a part of this amazing day and wishes the couple years and years of happiness.
