Being my only daughter, Baille and I have our ups and downs - I think it is the mother/daughter thing. We fight, we have bad moods but when it is all said and done we love each other very much and I love having her home to share things with me. She is my creative partner, we make jewelry together, we craft together, we shop together and when she is away the desire to do these things is lessened for me.
I had so many projects that I was wanting her input on but she's a busy girl and my time was rationed. Now the input will have to happen via pictures over our cell phones and an occasional Skype session. Her course of study in Fashion Design is a stressful one and most of her creative thoughts are spent on trying to get A's and just get through the quarter. Here's hoping that the next quarter is a successful one and that the ten weeks she is away will pass quickly.
