Guess what... today I uploaded pics from the beach trip. So, that means starting tomorrow, I will be able to share beachy posts! When I upload pics, I typically mean around 600 or so at a time. You may or may not realize (ha!!), but I take a lot of photos. So, there is a process involved in getting them all in files an labelled and sorted, etc. I have a very organized filing system for my pics for the past 5years; starting with the birth of Ellie. I might not could put my finger on any picture at any given time, but I'd have a pretty good starting place.
Anyhoo, let me tell you about this day. This was one day when we all three went out to support a little patient of mine who is a straight up miracle! Gaines was in distress when he was born and had to be resuscitated. He was not breathing for 12 minutes.
And let me tell you.. he is a straight up miracle!! So, we all donned our TEAM GAINES tee shirts and went out to participate in a fundraiser walk for March of Dimes. As soon as it was over, we headed right on into our buddy, Polly's Place!
To my recollection, the girls have never had an "official, sit-in-the-chair" haircut. And so, this was the day!
Polly spritzed it a little to make it more official and then, trimmed those raggedy ends!
I know I've mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. When Jake was sick, Polly said, "I don't have a lot of money I can donate, but what I can donate, I will. I will not accept any money from you or any of your family for haircuts/ color/ whatever until Jake is healed." And she meant it. She WANTED us to all come to her for our hair needs. And she refused to accept any payment.
and when she could, she would also throw in awesome hair products that I assume she could get for cost. She would send goodie bags with me to Memphis for Staci of mousse, gel, straightening stuff, whatever! And let's just admit it... who doesn't love all that kind of stuff?! It was always a fun surprise for Staci. (Oh... she did it for me too!)
And if you recall, I had Hunter and Hayden for a couple of years in there, so they were part of the deal too. And she definitely meant it when she said she wanted us to all come to her.
Polly has a great servant's heart. She is a really good friend.
She and Staci have been good buds since they were in elementary school.
And I mean, DANG! I look fly! Thanks, Polly, for always taking care of us and making us look and feel great.
