...skies are blue, and the dreams that we dare to dream really do come true...

Took this picture on my first Mother's Day last Sunday. It was the first year that this day meant something for me...and I loved it. This year I understand better than ever how much my own mother loves me as I finally love my own child this way. If, in 28 years, I have been the kind of mother to Shaelyn Jade that my mother has been to me, I will be so happy.
Where do I start?...Seems like my life "started" one day when I met a boy named Rich in French class. A few years later, he asked me to marry him on a beach in Charleston, SC (one of my favorite spots on this earth)... and a few years after that, we fell in love again- this time with a chubby faced, long legged, brown eyed baby girl that we call Shaelyn Jade. Two years after that we welcomed our blonde hair and blue-eyed boy Jude Warren into our crew! Time is flying by and we are soaking up every minute we can as a family of 4! This is a peek into our lives as we seek to follow Jesus wherever He leads us, and bring glory to His name each day. I am SO BLESSED and I feel, most days, that we are living "somewhere over the rainbow..."
