Goodbye my love...Goodbye my friend

Today was the day.
Today was the day I said goodbye.
 It came on a rainy fall Ohio day.
With unspoken words of sadness, each lasting moment I held close to my heart.

My heart breaks for Kennedy and Landon as they miss the joy that their daddy brings to them day to day. We'll miss the sound of his whistle saying hello after a long day. We'll miss the way he fills our days with love and laughter. Most of all, we'll miss having the person that makes this family complete.

Jared - you've captured my soul in an indescribable way. You've been that person that lifts me up when the world seems so empty. Thank you for who you are to me and our two precious children. I pray that this time passes and that you always know that your loved and cherished in this family. LOVE YOU!

and most of all

Church today was awe inspiring! Christmas is here and the hustle and bustle is about to begin. We are so fortunate and blessed as Americans to celebrate this amazing time of year. However, there are so many who spend this time in need, despair, and without hope. Instead on focusing on the material THINGS (because that's really what they are) what if we came together to give people clean water, hope, and love. Christmas IS about giving and it's IN the giving that we receive!

The story of Christ's birth is a story of promise, hope, and a revolutionary love.

Apple and Cake


This past weekend I celebrated my 28th birthday with the people that I truly treasure in life  - Jared, Kennedy, and Landon. My most thoughtful husband surprised me last week with a new Macbook Pro Laptop! It's quite amazing to say the least. A whole world different than a PC but completely up my alley - it's simple, clean, modern, and fun (in other words I love it love it love it!!) In addition to my new fun toy, Kennedy had a beautiful surprise waiting for me after I got my birthday pedicure. As I was gone, Jared had Kennedy create a beautiful painting for me named "Cake". It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift that I'll truly treasure forever. I have it hanging where I can see it every day - it brings a huge smile to my face. 
Jared - Thank you for making my weekend so special. You are an amazing friend and husband who continues to cherish me in countless ways! I love you!

Off to Neverland!

My Peter Pan ready to fly!
There's no Peter Pan without his sidekick Tinkerbell!
Pumpkin fun!

Kennedy was the official candy distributor - she loved her BIG responsibility!

I got a little love from Peter Pan....
