We have had ONE busy weekend! We celebrated P’s birthday Friday night, my niece’s birthday Saturday…and then we decided to surprise my parents with a little wedding fun renewing vows with ring pops as the grandkids put on a little wedding and reception for them. It was so sweet…and so fun! Here’s a little sneak peak! (Here’s the direct link just in cast the one below doesn’t load well…)
The greatest gift my parents have given me–is showing us girls how to work things out. We are committed to our husbands, our families and to our friends. We have watched our parents and learned how to work through hard–because it hasn’t always been easy…but we have learned that you never, ever give up. We have learned when you have hard relationships–friendships…or whatever–that when things get hard or uneasy or uncomfortable…you don’t avoid…you don’t run–you go deep–TOGETHER…because right around the corner…well, that’s where the best stuff is. They have taught us to be loyal, true and to take risks. And to be vulnerable–real and authentic in who we are with each other. I’m so thankful for what they are leaving us…a legacy to pass down to our children…and to our children’s children. And so thankful for sisters–who have shared every part of the beautiful alongside me. Mom and dad–we love you very much! Thank you for fighting for one another and for teaching us what it means to really love.
