It is rare for me to have no words.
Looking more than a little tired.
I have so many things I want to say, and yet I have no words.
We are not guaranteed anything in life. We have a responsibility to let the people we love know how we feel about them. We have an obligation to be kind and to try to leave the world a better place. Don’t waste your life waiting for it to begin.
So, in the spirit of that sentiment, here are a few of the people and memories I love the most.
I love this picture so much. This costume was logistically more difficult than I thought it would be. He was the perfect little mummy.
May as well continue with the Halloween pics. Look, it’s my baby brother- wearing eye shadow! Looking tough Bubba.
I would not go to school with crazy witch hair and makeup. I did not want to be seen ugly. (One of my family’s favorite stories.)
I can’t believe it has been so long. We did it! One of my favorite pics of my BFF and I.
Good times with my dear friends. Love these women so much.
Me and my little buddy. My nephew, Kyle. I love this kid so much!
Tough Mudder Adventures. I can’t wait for the next one!
Me and my other nephew, My Squishy.
Kurt and I before the Tough Mudder. He basically held my hand, and let me flirt shamelessly with him all day. Love all my superhero friends. It certainly helps how easy on the eyes he is.
My “little bro”- Trevor and my brother, also named Trevor- are two of the nicest guys I know. I am a lucky girl to have all these great dudes in my life.
I vote for: it’s always a good idea to get a selfie with the guy in chains.
This is one handsome dude. I love his heart. I do not know how I got to be so lucky with a kid like him.
Fun times with fun friends.
Hanging out in Memphis.
Just because we don’t have shot glasses, does not mean we don’t do shots. However, the lack of a corkscrew- did lead to wine bottle breakage… Live and learn.
Love these peeps. You guys look so cool.
Me and my beautiful mom. She’s pretty much awesome. I am lucky to have her.
My first time! With Sushi, get your head out of the gutter…
Ty and Granny… He played my favorite song for his talent show. The Entertainer from one of my favorite movies: The Sting.
Just a girl and her dog. This was Cinnamon. She was the bomb-diggity.
Ty’s first time! …. With Sushi!!! NYC was so awesome. I am so glad I got to share the experience with my favorite person in the whole world.
Just us grandkids with Mamaw. Always a good time. I love it when she is game for selfies.
Just one of the random things I miss most from my other job…. getting to take random selfies with this hottie. (He is Shannon’s husband- I always send them to her….) It makes me smile.
Oh, my Gracie Belle. She is the coolest cat. Moody, temperamental, and my sweet girl. She nurses on my blanket, and she is always glad to see me when I get home. Her sister Bonnie Blue on the other hand…. not so much.
My girl Brooke, who refuses to bleach my hair ever again… because the bleach makes me cry and whine… and then I demand to go dark again after the wounds on my scalp heal. Love that she humors my many whims when it comes to my hair.
My dear brother and sister-in-law. Trevor and Robin, you guys are a good example of what a decent marriage should be. You love and respect each other every day. I love that you two found happiness with each other.
My four guys. I always wanted a “red-headed step brother,” JT, thanks for making that wish come true.
I love having all these strong, beautiful, brilliant women as my friends. I think I may have the best group of people in the world. I am indeed a lucky girl.
Selfies are always better when you are wearing shades.
Yeah…. now, we are all professionals and responsible for real human lives. Scary thought.
So, what’s the point? Well, my life is meaningful because of all these people. There are a lot of other people who mean the world to me too. I am lucky. We have to remember to love our people. Don’t take them for granted. My heart is with my family in California tonight. I will be sending you all the loving vibes I can. I love you guys!
