Completely and Utterly Oneself

July 28 2016:

Lillian & Camilla May 2016 Date Day #9

When people come into your life who you feel completely and utterly yourself with, spend time with them. It’s inspiring.

Those times when you’re spending time with those who you feel completely and utterly yourself with, talking about things that are meaningful to all of you, with those who get you.

Those times when two and a half hours feels like 30 minutes. Those times when you are saying goodbye all the way out the door and to their cars as they leave …

I got to have one of those afternoons and it blessed my heart and soul. Thank you Melinda Bourke Blackwell and Barbara Richmond Chastain. Our time together today was inspiring and we overflow with gratitude for your support of Thomas and his upcoming book. xoxoxo

Blessings,
Thomas, Lillian and Camilla = Team TLC
See It. Share It. BE IT … Spread Love Everywhere You Go!

Wonderfully exciting news! We’ve completed the first book trailer for Thomas’ upcoming book, Biggest Little Photographer. You can learn more and pre-order here.

February 1 2012: Puzzles and Cupcakes and Friends

Thomas had a GREAT morning today in class! YAY for him! Earned his sucker and playing with his friends after school.

Puzzle adventures for Lillian this afternoon. She loves putting together puzzles, especially this one with a castle and princess!

This afternoon we went on a Team TCL smog test adventure for our car. To hear Thomas and Lillian you’d think we were doing something very exciting!! Tabs expire tomorrow! Suppose it’s time I get on this!

When we got back Thomas made cakes, cupcakes and ice cream for all of us using Lillian’s Cake Maker Playdoh set!

I had an awesome evening with my eWomenNetwork friends. These events are simply the best! Wonderful time seeing friends, chatting, drinking wine and meeting new people and learning a bit about them. Not to mention, meeting local people face to face that you’ve only chatted with through Facebook! Came home to two kids very happy to have Mom home! Nothing better!
