Learning My Lesson the Easy Way...

I'm lucky- I know I am. I have everything a girl could ever want.  I have a beautiful family, home, a great job and my health- and I have AMAZING family and friends.  I truly hate feeling sorry for myself.  The feeling you get when you're down on yourself is beyond depressing.  Usually, I get over it, but it takes a while... and other times- it comes a little easier.  Like for instance, I took some more pictures the other day and just look:
I love the way they turned out, and I love these people! I am so lucky to have been given as good a friend as Monica has been since before Jon and I got married. We're totally opposite- and because she's able to tolerate me, it works! Sometimes I need to be reminded how lucky I am.

I've been amazed at the things that have happened lately to make me feel better about me. I'm grateful for all my friends and the awesome family that I have. I'll do better not to take them all for granted!

I just have to say that I am the lucky one having Steph for a friend. She is awesome. She is an amazing photographer and friend. I am also lucky to be the recipient of her handy work, I may be prejudice but I think those are the best pictures ever!! Thanks a ton, you’re the best. Monica:)
