Childs Family

Today's "I love" ... well its not something ... it's someone ... some four!!! 

I lived with Dave & Michelle for almost a year in Edmonton while I was taking my esthetics course.  I didn't know them before I moved in ... but now 2 years later ... They are my second family!  Carter & Everett are 'my boys'!! They are my 'nephews I don't yet have'!!  

I cannot tell you how grateful and happy and blessed I am to know such amazing people.  When I go up to visit them or see them when they are here in Calgary it's like no time has passed and we pick up right where we left off, even if its been months since I've seen them.  

I get to see them this weekend and these are friends who make me SOOO incredibly HAPPY!!! Just thinking about going to see them .. AHHH I'm just so excited!!  

God really has blessed me with the Childs Family ... You guys are so special to me & hold a very special place in my heart!!!

I LOVE you guys so very much!!!

Laughing so hard I cry

I LOVE that feeling of being able to laugh so hard I start crying!  That happened tonight ... Jesse, my little brother, is leaving for school for 3 months in Texas tomorrow morning so tonight was our last hangout night ... He was asking me how to sneeze without making noise!  Let's just say when he tried to sneeze without making noise it failed!!!  We started laughing and NOT a word of a lie ... NO exaggerating here ... We laughed SO hard I had tears rolling down my face! 
It's times like those that i realize how happy I really am, how privileged I am that I have friends and family who can make me laugh and who love me so much!  I am so thankful that God has placed such amazing people in my life & I pray for each and everyone of them everyday!

starry nights

Starry nights remind me,especially, of one of the years we went to Molokai, Hawaii.  It was Sarah, Candaci, Matt, James & me ... we were sitting out on the porch and watching the stars.  Someone had the brilliant idea ... no one could talk until they saw a shooting star! Well ... we ended up talking the whole time because there were so many shooting stars!!  That is one of my favorite memories about those Molokai Mission Trips!  

I LOVE being able to look up into the sky and see millions and millions of stars ... It's absolutely astonishing that there is a Creator who numbered each and every star and put them in a specific place! 

... And that Creator created me!

from negative to positive

So I have decided that I am beginning to become alot more negative & I am surrounded by to much negativity at work .... I don't really like the person that it's making me ... 

This is how I am going to try and make a difference in my life ... once a day I will post something on my blog that I love or something that makes me happy!  I find that when I write I get alot of my feelings and thoughts out ... So maybe if I write down some of things that make me smile or make me happy I can have a more positive outlook on life.  It's a very psychological problem!!! 

It's also going to help with the once a month posts from me on my blog!! 

Here's to being happy!!!

One of my favorite things is ... Freshly Painted Toes/Nails!!

It's probably because this is what I do for a living, but the look of freshly painted toes/nails is so refreshing & I love the look of it!!! Ahhhh ... so pretty!!! Yes, you may laugh if you'd like!!!  I would too!!
