so many things to share

first of all i want to thank you for reaching out this week. it’s so weird how just talking about gregg’s death & writing those memories, albeit 17 years later, can honestly make it seem like yesterday. fresh and raw and real all over again. sometimes i forget that the girls don’t really know everything around those days and that’s okay. they will, in time.

i told savannah my intent is never to exploit that part of our story, but my hope is instead to give testimony to how much the lord blessed us and kept us. and by blessed and kept i don’ t just mean in the flesh of a new daddy. yes, he gave us dan which was a mind blowing gift that i never dared imagine, but even if he didn’t send a 6 foot 4 inch handsome man He still would have blessed us & kept us. i hope you believe me.

so again, thank you.

caroline & i recently headed over to joann’s where she chose her fleece fabric to whip up a tie blanket. she actually completed it that evening & did a great job. oh. and yes. she’s quite the little fashion plate in her combat boots & fantastic cardi that she picked out. i was never that cute at 12.

since my boot inventory is a well loved investment by a houseful of girls i justified a new addition this past weekend.

Jackie @ Roots & Wings - LOVE your CLF finds! Those letters are fantastic!
Have so much fun at the game! I’ll be cheering from the couch and making pompoms. That Anthro wreath knock off has me hooked. 🙂

jodi - Love seeing what the knudsen fam is up to! 🙂 The boots!!!! OMG…..Love them! I am in search of a pair…my first pair! My husband works in the oilfield in Wyoming and I told him while he is out there, he might as well pick up my Christmas present…I would LOVE a pair of boots….I may just have to result in purchasing my own from the internet. LOL

Take care Girl!
