Do you think Heaven might look like Lake Powell?

The ideal way to finish the summer.

Stuck like glue.

Perfectly comfortable being in the sun,
on a boat, with a good looking guy.

This smile never left her face, I'm sure of it.

I love you, Amanda.

Love MOM


Talk about icing on the cake-

After an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G weekend at Lake Powell

this girl gets to go flying!

Girls take note- Date guys who know people with boats and planes.

Who needs a plane?
This girl is flying high on joy alone!

Too cool.

Spectacular view!

Perfect way to lock in those memories

of a perfect weekend.

Thank you DANE!

Missing Amanda

When Andi married and moved away I missed her a lot. The sound of her voice, the little conversations we had, knowing what she was doing, where she was going, when she would be home . . . all that ceased abruptly one day. Even though Andi is missed, Amanda was here so even though the house became quieter- it was not silenced. Amanda and I have since traveled to Washington DC together, We have cleaned the house together, smashed, created photo books, sewed, blah, blah and blah together. I kinda got used to the conversations we had and hearing her sing as she hung out at home. Now it is quiet.
The upside is that I can chew my gum as loud as I wish, but I sure do miss Amanda's smiling face and positive outlook on everything. Good thing she is close enough to come home during college breaks. Miss YOU, Amanda!
