Happy Birthday AG

13 years ago today my precious niece Annah Grace was born. Really can't believe she's a teenager.  She is so full of life and spunk and kindness and creativity. There is no one quite like her. 

At the hospital right after AG was born! I was 13!

It used to drive me crazy when people would say, "Oh my, you have really grown up"...but now I totally get it because I think that about AG every time I see her!


And Now...

Okay I'm done being sappy. Happy Birthday AG! I love you so much!

The Best Dad

If you know me, you know that I have always been a daddy's girl. Words really can't describe how much I love my dad. Growing up, I spent alot of time with my dad and some of my favorite memories include: getting TCBY frozen yogurt on the way home from orchestra rehearsal every Monday night, going on mission trips to Spain & Canada and our orchestra trip to Italy, watching the newest episode of Alias every Sunday night together, listening to him playing the piano, singing and writing music for hours, being in his choir and orchestra all through high school and the list goes on...But more than all of that, my dad has always made me feel so special. He has always treated me like a princess and talks about me like I am a much better person than I really am. He has always loved my mom, my brother and me so well and has always put us first before himself. He is so full of life and has a deep passion, more than any one I've ever known or heard of, to see God glorified through music. My dad is truly amazing is so many ways so I want to say Happy Father's Day from the girl who will always be daddy's little girl! 

I love you dad! You are the best!

I Love You Forever

So my original anniversary post got deleted so here is my second attempt at my "I love you forever and Happy Anniversary Blog Post" to A. 

Three years ago on June 6th I married my best friend. Thinking back to when we first started to become friends senior year at Baylor, it's amazing to see how God had a perfect plan all along. I never could have dreamed up a more perfect man for me than Andrew. What amazed me about A almost 5 years ago when we met and what still amazes me today is his passion for life and his love for our Savior. So three years later I am still in love with my best friend and so 
happy to be married to the man of my dreams. 

I love looking back at old pics from the year we met. Here are a few pics of one of the first times we ever hung out...at the Waco Fair of course!! 

We're in this journey together and I can't imagine my life any other way. 
Looking forward to every day of the rest of my life with you A.

I love you Forever!

A Lovely Weekend

Well, here goes another post about the weekend. I really just love weekends and could make them my full time job ;) This weekend was especially lovely because A is home, the weather was perfect and the city is noisy and alive! I know we at least have one more year in Kansas City but I'm starting to get that feeling that you get senior year of college...not "senioritis"...but just the opposite... the feeling that you're not ready to leave a place you have grown to love or the people that you adore.  So I am soaking in every lovely moment that we have in KC! 

Saturday morning trip to the Farmers Market to get fresh flowers and produce. I love being with A. 

It's so cute how he hangs over the balcony like that to check out what's goin on down below. Just please don't jump off Sammy! 

Tried out a new spot in KC with Kayla called Little Freshie! It's an adorable little soda shop & espresso bar in one of my favorite little areas just South of downtown. Love this chica and her precious little girls.  I hope her godly wisdom and peaceful spirit will rub off on me! 

The weather was so beautiful this weekend it called for firing up the grill and eating on our back patio Friday and Saturday night! 

Thanks to Papa Paul for hand crafting our new rockin Baylor washer boards! Sic 'em! 

A planted some beautiful flowers in pots and brought color & life to our little duplex. 
Refreshed by the blessings of the Lord and ready for the week!
