thank you, pinterest.

We're staying busy over here--and enjoying every minute of it!  My dad has spent the past month with us in Raleigh.  It's been a joy and such a blessing to have him here.  We've accomplished much around the house {& if I didn't leave my camera in Michigan I would have pictures to prove it!}

I've been inspired by Pinterest....
(click on the picture to take you to the source and more info!)
Once my camera is back I'll post pictures of our new headboard, jewelry frame and artwork!  

I'm excited that October is right around the corner.
I'm so ready for sweaters, pumpkin lattes, and cooler weather!
(I'm counting down the days until I can experience all the above in Michigan--we'll be there soon!)
much love,

three weeks.

Mom, It's been three weeks since you left this earth and went home to be with Jesus. Some nights I find myself dreaming of what heaven is like and what you're doing.  I hope heaven has a porch--a huge white wrap around porch--with glorious rocking chairs. If so,  you're probably sitting in a rocking chair next to Jim's mom, loving on babies  and enjoying a cup of coffee. I can only imagine the encompassing smile that graces your face doing so.  Or, maybe there's a party tonight and you're laughing and dancing with Amy's dad and Kristin's dad. If so, I can only imagine the joy you're experiencing and your new found dance moves.  Or, maybe you're talking with grandpa and embracing him in a hug that you've longed to do for so long. We're rejoicing that you're healed, but hurting so bad that you're no longer here. I miss you, Mom....I miss and love you so much.
I long for the day we're reunited.
with all my love, em
