If you are a mom, you know certain secret things. You know you are the only one who can tell when to take cookies out of your oven. You know exactly how much the laundry can overflow the basket and still be small enough to smash in the washer in one load. You know that you will rarely need to get gussied up for photos, because you are almost always behind the camera.
Knowing that photos of ourselves don't just magically happen, we, of course, wait until the final hour (grrrrr!) to take snapshots of ourselves together. Mom and Beka head north for Missouri in the morning. Tonight was our last chance to document this little vaca with some actual hard evidence. So, we did gussy up and head outside to the lovely brick exterior (so vintage chic) of our little abode.
My beautiful sis. I gave this girl a hair cut while she was here, and she bravely let me chop off around 6 inches!
I can see the resemblance!
This little one is gonna miss her Auntie like crazy! She isn't the only one, either.
The past nine days with my family have reminded me how sweet it is to be loved by those you grew up with. I am grateful they were willing to hold up in our little apartment, sleep on couches, and eat my under cooked green beans, just so they could hang with me and the littles.
Momma and Beka, you are both spectacular women. I thank my God for YOU. Someday soon we should all live in the same town again. Don't cha think?
