catching up :: june 2011.

note: this entry was written in july 2012, in an effort to finally update this little blog on the missing year or two of our lives, while i was so busy starting my new teaching career. :)

the month of june just flew by. i was thrilled to be home with my girls, just being wife and mommy for the first time in my life. :) it's hard to feel completely settled and secure in something, fully knowing that it won't last. i struggled a lot last summer knowing that it was ending so quickly. i kept a mental note of how many weeks were left, and it just made me so sad "watching" it slip away.

this summer, i've tried to be better about that and just enjoy the time i have home with my girlies.

looking back at these pictures from last year makes my heart happy. we did have a fun time. :) it's good to remember the sweet moments. it helps me remember how blessed i really am. :)

emma was SO excited about this cupcake shoppe they
were building at stonebriar mall... we haven't been yet,
but we definitely need to check it out -
so pink & princessy! :) reminds me of cinderella. :)

loved looking back and seeing these little feet
enjoying the summer breeze :)

she was so proud that she "snuggled rylie to sleep." 

they love each other so much. :)

bathtime fun. :)

jason surprised me by sticking sweet love notes in
random spots around the house. it was a great way
to communicate our love & appreciate for each other. :)

i was excited to finally get my dishes into my cabinet!
i got all these beautiful white dishes for christmas & it
took me 6 months to finally get them unpacked and
put away! :) but i love love love them.
