last weekend my parents flew from tennessee and my gramie flew from texas to come be together and visit us in our new life. to spend time separated from jobs, obligations, and chores.
I learned a little about myself through watching each of them no matter how you embrace it or fight it you are your family. i am my family.
i wash my hands a million miles a minute, love to talk on the phone, and getting a little rise out of people im close to. just like my dad
i love people, texture, being silly, decorating & shopping. just like my grams
i dream of having little girls but my grams makes me change my mind when i see how much she loves my dad
i love quality time, connecting, snuggling, drinking huge diet cokes,getting things accomplished, being warm . all my mom
it was not the most beautiful weekend ever the wind blew hard and the chill was cold. the adventures i planned were not all followed through . we headed down 16th street mall and lasted less than 30 minutes
what we did was better we spent serious quality time together in the car site seeing, on the couch watching silly movies & ate long meals with great convo.
thank you all for coming it was a treat to have you and beyond fun to be together.
miss them all already!
i wanna be just like her !
she told me while she was here all she ever dreamed of was to have a big family i thought ohhhh thats where i get it.
im hoping and praying when we start having kids i can talk her into living with us
the professional co tour guides . not joking when i say we have had people with us more days then not since janurary. i wanted a full table :)
cant wait to see brit and nathan next they will be here this week

im dreaming of this.
the snow keeps dumping.
i shovel and shovel some more
i make an effort to enjoy hunkering down by the fire
going on new adventures
driving to mountains to snowboard after wrecking this weekend in the snow
i have enjoyed the winter but i am OVER IT !
in about six weeks i will head to the bahamas to this sweet new friend nikki's wedding
i cant wait for the celebration
i cant wait to hang out in the sun & put my toes in the sand
sharon and i will hop on a plane and fly to the bahamas in six weeks ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
to escape the neg 20 degree weather to sleep in a sweet room where we can hear the waves rolling and smell the seashore. to drinking pina coladas and lather on the sunscreen. to taking fun pictures of beautiful people, im so grateful for every chance im with sharon when she shoots i learn infinitely more than hours of online tutorials and practicing alone
im dying i can not wait for every bit of it
today i will be grateful though because im not guaranteed tomorrow
