I started writing to Paisley when I was pregnant with her and continued on as we added another little gal to our family. I usually write something to them each birthday, when there’s a milestone, prayers over their life, tidbits about our day, or just a quick note when I’m thinking of it. Handwritten letters […]

Journals for My Daughters

She’s one of the kindest souls I know. She made me a mom and changed my life. I’m so grateful God sent you to us, Paisley. You make me better and I’m so proud of the wonderful person you are. You’re always going with the flow, have a happy attitude, go out of your way […]

Paisley – Eleven Years

We celebrated our oldest girl Saturday with a sweet, small party and a few friends. All she wanted was cake, snacks, and to play so that’s exactly what we did! What better way than using her dogs that is something most precious to her as the theme. I just chose some fun colors and went […]

Paisley’s “Auss”ome 11th Birthday

My girl lost her best friend today. I’ve been through the loss of a lot of horses in my lifetime but this one was tough. When it’s your kid you just wish you could take it for them. I believe God has a special place for them all. Thank you for taking care of Paisley […]

This year flew by and she’s grown so much this year. We had some pre-graduation pictures with our friend Rikki the other day and they are something I am going […]

Paisley’s Kindergarten Graduation

Six years ago this olive skinned, blue eyed, black headed, beautiful baby girl made her entrance into the world and changed our lives forever. She made us parents. She has taught me so much about selflessness, sacrifice, kindness, and love. She encourages me, makes me laugh, and has brought so much joy to my heart. […]

My friend Aubrey outdid herself again! I waited on getting Paisley’s 5 year pictures done so this summer we could do her 5 year, Scout’s 2 year, and sister pictures all in one. I wanted some with their teepee and horse to go up in their new room I’m working on. I loved how they […]

Paisley + Scout's Sister Shoot

I’m sure you know the quote “Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a daddy.” I’ve more than likely bought this card for my Dad ten times or more but oh, it is so true. God knew the desires of my heart when he chose Zack for me. One, he’s an […]
