Last week I had the pleasure of hanging out with this cute, funny, and very clever girl. We were non-stop talking, playing, and giggling. At one point I tried to check my e-mail and she says, “Hey, why are you not smiling and laughing?!” So true. She makes me smile and laugh, like all the time. She created many adventures for us to go on. And I decided to bring my camera along for one. Think these do justice to her charm and vibrant personality.
And what makes this adorable girl even more lovable? She is my babysitter’s baby (well, not my current babysitter, but my babysitter growing up)! Oh, how we grow so fast…
Well, let’s just say I’ve got some big shoes to fill and high expectations of love and marriage. Geesh, parents! They are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary today. I am so happy to have been shown what a healthy, caring, awesomely loving partnership looks like. My father is a jovial man with a laugh that can simultaneously penetrate through walls, warm the soul, and scare the crap out of small children. My mother is kind. Like the craziest kindhearted person in. the. world. No “jk”s here. Together they are amazing.
“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”

Living each decade, each year, each day, with patience, laughter, and hugs.
