so I realized, I said I was going to catch up on the picture-posting, and well, I haven’t.
I could toss out any number of excuses, the effects of a head cold, the effects of little people when they are sick, holidays, houses, global warming..
but really? like any of those have stopped me?
(okay, maybe a couple have aided me in my failure..)
so I am going to attempt to rectify this situation. and I will do you one better than that, I will even get a thankful thing out too!
what better way to start than to start off with my best friend. mostly because she is my best friend, but secondly because she is amazing, and so is her family. and then, well, because she is my best friend.
I am so thankful (if you can’t tell already) that she is part of my life. I am so thankful to have her right next door pretty much any time I need her, or anytime I just want to be near her. she was my sanity while merrill was gone for two weeks (far, far too long a period of time for that man to be absent), and she has been the sidekick to many of my creative projects (many of which were undertaken while merrill was gone). she is there to listen to me, talk me off of a cliff, ledge, or any other bad spot in life. we laugh a lot and she never makes me feel guilty about my choice in food groups (sugar anyone?). my family loves her. partly because she notifies me when our favorites have gone on sale at a local store, but mostly because she helps me maintain my sanity.
I am thankful for her family too. I love her kids! we enjoy double dating when we can, and love getting our families together (although it has been a while..).
I am thankful that she asked me to snap some new family pics this fall. it is always a good time with them. it is quite an honor to capture a family, especially when it is one I love so much!
love ya ju!!
