DIY Watercolor Silhouette {and a free printable!}

I’ve been sick lately.  Pneumonia, a lung infection, the works.

Contentment.

I woke up with morning feeling a little more than cranky. In fact, had any of my children stomped down the stairs for breakfast sporting the face I was, they would have been deemed Crab Apple of the morning! Instead, I was the crab apple. After a fitful night, I woke up stiff and sore. […]
