My New Favorite Picture

Love, love, love this picture of Jacob and Lucas!

And notice the hoodies they are wearing? Part of the Splendid Littles For Target collection that I just did a review on. (Becky H. was the winner by the way… if you didn’t win, check Target.com or your local Target. I saw a whole endcap featuring the collection while I was shopping at my local Target today!)

“Meant To Be” by Ryan Scott

A beautiful song by Ryan Scott to his biological mom who was raped but chose life for her son. I normally don’t post a single video as a blog post but this song really touched me and I love the message.
