Present Memories

Even though this picture was just taken tonight, it holds so many memories already…

The excitement Kobi had upon finally seeing her papa Cook.

The joy reading brings her.

The time spent fulfilling a wish.

The special conversations had in this moment.

The love shared.

The sweet, sweet moment spent with family.

Captured for memories sake, to hold onto the moments that will shape her life and the moments that have healed ours.

Stuffing all the emotions in a grab bag lined in gratitude.

This life has been good to us.

Thank You Jesus!

Make A Note Monday: Family Is What You Make It

This past weekend I drove over to Oklahoma for my best friends wedding and I was so excited to see her on her special day and just as excited to see the family, her family who had been a picture of what a family was for me when I was in high school… (You know a mom and a dad with siblings who support each other)… 20131014-183652.jpg
This is my best friend Jeni and her family…

Anyway, it got me to thinking that over the years I have been apart of some really awesome families. Groups of people who don’t necessarily look like me but who love me and accept me and are apart of my life in one way or another… And for that I am truly blessed. Some people are far away and we hardly ever see each other and some people are so close we have dinner once a week if not more! But at the end of the day I know that they love me and care about me and isn’t that what family is all about?

These are just a few of the people I call family… May you find family wherever you are in life and may they love and accept you always!!

My Week Recap

Life Update Through Pictures

So I noticed that I haven’t done a weekly recap in like forever pretty much like a whole month… so instead of doing a weekly update or a two week update I decided to just give an update starting from my spring break to include some cool pictures some school pictures, some time with friends and family and cute outfits! I hope you enjoy this update and I hope that your lives are going well.
