Going Once...

Going once....
Going Twice....

Who's the best photographer in Naples, FL? Well, it's Savor Photography, of course!!

These are the most amazing pictures of my three cutest kids (okay, so I only have a total of three, but still, they're the cutest!!) and it's even more special because the blanket they're laying on is my Great-Grandmother's quilt. Heritage. I love it.

Disclosure: There was no payment or anything for this post. I just love the heck out of this photographer, who also happens to be my amazing sister, Rachel!

I'm the type of person that is very social. I love to laugh, have a good time, have lots of friends around. The problem that I find is not in finding "friends". It is in finding deep meaningful friendships that actually impact you.

In my "adult life" I've found far too often that I have been on the wrong side of a fair weather friendship. They take & take & take & take, and rarely, if ever give back. Or when you really need them their excuses are too numerous to count. I often have been warned by parents & my dear husband that I am far too nice, far too giving to these people, and because of it, I often end up hurt.

But then there are a few friends with whom you have that connection with. It's more than just a hi when you see each other. It's more than some trips to the movies or to the mall, or for coffee. It's the type of friend that you can call at 2 AM and cry because your baby won't stop crying. It's the type of friend that no matter how far away you live from them, they are still your "closest" friend. It's the type of friend that even if you go for years (yes, YEARS!) at a time without talking, you can see them at the airport & pick up EXACTLY where you left off, as if no time has elapsed.

To these friends, I am so thankful for you. To these ones that pour into my heart & into my life, I am so thankful. To these people that are more than just friends, I am thankful I can count you among my family. I love you, you mean the world to me & I treasure our friendship. Thank you for being you!!

Just as an FYI: Lorin, we don't have any pictures of the two of us. How sad is that?

I heart faces-My 1st entry!!

I've been toying with the idea of entering at I Heart Faces for quite sometime now, but then when I saw that this week's theme was purple, I knew it was my week. My favorite color is purple, and this, well this is Makenna's favorite dress. Ever. Even though it's a dress up dress. Don't tell her that though. For other entries for this week check them out here!!
