Sunshine

Remember Claire? Take a peek at her beautiful family! I soaked up every sweet minute I had with her in Utah. Her daughter is pure sunshine and her baby boy is a seriously sweet little guy. In our short two days together, she made me the most delicious bread and yummy chicken tacos. We stayed up way past any mother's bedtime crocheting hats, reminiscing about our college days, talking and laughing. I got to admire from the other room as she gave a few of her students piano lessons. I did a lot of admiring, actually. She makes motherhood look like the angelic calling it is. I came home wanting to be a better mom. And that's what I love about Claire-- for nearly ten years now, she's always been there, lifting me up.

  8. Your pictures are amazing! And wanna know something funny? The way Claire makes you feel about wanting to be a better mom is how I always feel when I get off the phone/chat with you. You're pretty incredible that way yourself. And wanna know something else funny? For a long time I've been hearing about your friend Claire and somehow that is not what she looked like in my head. In my head she had dark hair, and some freckles. Isn't that funny how we picture people and then get shocked when they look different from that? LOL.

  13. It will be 9 years this summer when I took your cute self to BYU-I and dropped you off at said "Ghetto" apartment. That was a fun day for me and I loved being able to do that for you and your family. BUT I can't believe it's been that long!!! How fun that you met that great friend Claire your first year! What a blessing! Glad you got to spend some time with her!
