Today marks six months since my grandmother passed away.  I wanted to share on here the same thing that I shared at her memorial service.  I miss her so much!

I've known since I was young how blessed I was to have grandparents nearby that I got to see often. A lot of my friends' grandparents lived far away, and I have always been so glad to have mine near. Both of my grandfathers passed away when I was little, so I've become very close to my two grandmothers. Having the two of them is something that I'll be thankful for for the rest of my life.

My Grandma Burroughs has left this Earth, but not without leaving an impact on many lives. I can't speak for others, but I can say what she has done for me. All of my life, I've seen her at least once a week for the most part. During the summers, she would usually watch me and my brother the week after we got out of school. We would take walks around her neighborhood, go to the Farmer's Market, eat lunch at Arby's,…


I just wanted to post about how much I love life at this moment.
I love Saturday mornings. I love Saturdays in general.
This morning, one of my Sisters (Tree) and I went to Michael's and Target to get stuff to craft for our Twin Reveal on Tuesday.  I'm so excited to make cute things!!!!!
Also, it's like 80 degrees and technically still Winter, so that's SUPER exciting!
Lacrosse game today, then hopefully tanning by the pool at school :)
THEN dance show tonight. I LOVE THE STAGE. IT'S HOME TO ME.
Also, it's St. Patrick's Day!!!!!
So everyone have fun but be safe!!!!

(this is what I feel like today)


A Special Day!

“How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” ~Dr. Seuss
YES, today is Dr. Seuss's birthday (and I'm going to see The Lorax tonight).
BUT it is also my sweet little sister's thirteenth birthday.
HOW did it get so late so soon?!?

Thirteen years ago right now, I was with my dad and brother and grandmothers and we were all at the hospital waiting for Ashley to arrive.  I was ten years old.
I remember that at about this time, we were in the cafe area and I was munching on a grilled cheese sandwich and drinking pink lemonade.  It was a Tuesday, and I was glad to be out of school.  It was the most exciting day of my life.  I had wanted a little sister for five years, and I had prayed almost every night for one.
{FYI I'm almost in tears right now hahah}
As we waited in the waiting room, I was getting anxious, and my brother has Matchbox NASCAR cars…
