I Appreciate You...

So our baby girl Hannah graduated from the baby suite to the one year old room!!
I honestly can't believe the year has gone by so quickly....

There are eight teachers in Hannah's infant suit at daycare so I needed a budget friendly gift for them.  So with Hannah in tow we headed the store.  I found these yummy smelling candles.

I peeled the stickers off each one and used some WD40 (only thing I had) to get any glue off the glass.
I cut a piece of material I got in the clearance pile at Hobby Lobby.

 Then I tied a piece of gray yarn around the top and....

Here you go! How cute is that!
I put them in a cute little bag and included a note card I printed Hannah's monogram on.
For under $15 a sweet little gift for the wonderful ladies that took such great care of my baby girl.  I struggle with leaving her each morning, but knowing that there are some pretty great people caring for her makes my day a little easier.  The best part of my day is seeing that huge smile and how happy she is when I pick her up every afternoon!

And So It Begins!

Well I have taken the leap and started a blog!  I have always wanted to have a place where my family and friends from all over can keep up with us and see what we are up to.  For those of you that don't know me my name is Maria, I am married to Adam and we have a sweet little girl named Hannah.

I was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina and proud to be a G.R.I.T.S.(girl raised in the south) in every way possible.  I am in love with the place I call home and hope to share some of this beautiful city with you here.  Please feel free to leave a comment and join us on this crazy adventure.
