Sister Love <3

My sister and I used to have a challenging relationship (10 years between us, probably added a layer to that), however, in the last 1 1/2 years or so, we have become very close. Not only as the big sister do I feel immensely proud of her, but she is one of my best friends, and truly is there no matter what.

Look what I got in the mail yesterday (yup, she still calls me “Neen,” from when she was 5?). This people THIS, is what’s important. Family, and showing your appreciation. How lucky am I?

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday to my Dad. He’s the best Dad a girl could have. It’s times like these that I miss my family even more, and wish we were closer.

Last Thanksgiving while I was home in Iowa visiting, my dad and I spent a day together seeing Iowa, and checking out different places. One of the places we went was the High Trestle Trail Bridge in Madrid, Iowa. We had a great day spending time together and enjoyed cooler temperatures with warm sunshine.BridgeBridge 2Bridge 3Bridge 4Bridge 5
