Just Because




It's a lot to explain...but I have become AMAZING friends with Kristyn...her RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous baby as well as her fabulous (and handsome!) husband Chris. I'm blessed to have met them and have them in my life. They are a WONDERFUL family with whom my husband and children also have a fantastic time with. We've all only been friends for a relatively short time yet it's one of those friendships that feels like it's ALWAYS been there.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris' Mother, Lilo ;) when she was here visiting a few weeks ago. She is a joy to be around...one of those people who you meet and you instantly feel comfortable being around...and she is an inspiration as a Mother as Chris is one of the BEST men I know...a true, all around, wonderful person. Well rounded, solid in his convictions, and grounded. He's fun and funny and easy to be around! And I know that this is innately because of his Mother. She raised him right. She did a PHENOMENAL job. Kristyn and Chris are two of the best people and THE best couple. They are both blessed to have each other...nevermind their DELICIOUS daughter...whom I'd really like to put into a sundae cup and eat up with a spoon!! ;)

Anyway - this card is for Lilo. She, unfortunately, doesn't live close and I know that it must have been hard for her to leave.

I look very forward to seeing her again!!

I hope that everyone has a very creative weekend!

That card is beautiful Meri. I think quite possibly the most lovely creation I've ever seen you make. I can tell that so much love and enthusiasm went into it.

((((hugs)))

What fate is it that I met her through a babysitting interview. I mean really what are the chances?
