A Fishing Story

This is a story about two little fisher-women...
They were out to make a big catch...

... and the fish were practically jumping onto their lines...

... and they were both reeling them in as fast as they could...

...and then they hooked the big one!...

...so they reeled and reeled with all their might!...

... and got a little help from the ol' pros...


...no, no... IT WAS REALLY THIS BIG!...

and of course the "big kids" got in on the intense fishing action...

... Im sure if you ask they will tell you they were out catching marlins!

Love fishing.

I found this note today and it took my breath away, I just stood there crying and then laughing at how funny the drawing is!

(brett with the really big fish and dad and ryan crying because they only got little fish)

I was thinking about all those little things you miss when you loose someone and how amazing it is that


you find these little treasures, hidden, just little pieces of really great memories.


you just get so lucky


there are people, angels, just things that know what your soul needs to be ok today.


you find something so beautiful it takes your breath away.

love Mom

My parents came to visit this weekend and it was so nice! We had dinner and watched a movie and did lots of chatting. While they were here my dad brought me my great great grandfather's gun cabinet which we are sooo excited about! And my mom brought our valentines gifts!
My mom has given us gifts for all the "small holidays" for as long as I can remember, as kids we would wake up and find the kitchen table covered in a whole holiday spread with gifts, and candies, and cards, and whatnots and it was always so sweet and made us feel so special!
And even now at 21 and in a different city my mom still manages to make me feel all super special on these little holidays! Thanks mom!
She got Quincy a box of chocolates and me a new journal which i love, love, LOVE! Oh, and a really sweet card!

We have all been enjoying the sun! Even Zip, this is his new favorite spot, right in the window of the office! What is it about sun after rain that makes you feel so smile-y?

Ahh, off to soak a bit more up!

we all wish...

Ok, you must watch this video! As I was watching it I realized if we could all scrapbook at that speed and efficiency then we would all be "caught up" in memory keeping!

Oh how we wish!

Happy Friday!
