FOUR THINGS I’M ALWAYS SAYING:

1. "But first, coffee!" No explanation needed. 
2. "Kiss & snuggle, I love you!"  Both my kids, hubby, and myself all say it to each other each time someone comes or goes. A proper hello and goodbye, lots of kisses, hugs and love in this family. I'm very lucky! 
3. "Did you wash your hands?" I literally say this 20 times a day to my kids. Reminders after school, before meals, and after bathroom breaks are needed. I feel like a broken record sometimes. 
4. "Will you blog me?" I generally take my own photos using a tripod and timer (or remote depending on the lens I'm using), but I love when someone else takes my photos. Kaitlyn, my hubby, my sister, my sitter..if I'm out with someone, I'll generally ask. Bloggers gonna blog!
