i'm back

i was called out.....after about 7 months of not blogging a sweet friend of mine said she missed my posting. i really didn't think anyone noticed. to be honest....life got away from me a bit ago and blogging was the last thing on my mind. but i feel that i'm in a good place again.....and i'm happy. it's crazy how tough life can get sometimes, and how it our darkest hours we feel that we will never be happy again. but, with a little love, and lot of patience and forgiveness, and taking a serious look at what really matters in life....it is possible. i've learned that i'm a very flawed person and this life is about becoming better, and i'm so blessed to have people around me who love me so much that they are willing to look past my flaws and just love me for me. i'm a very, very blessed woman. ok...enough of that.....so i'm back. i'll be better about posting. i'm not going to back and try to play catch-up on the last 7 months....i'm going to start from now. and i'll be working on updating the look and layout of my blog too.....it's in need of a small facelift. so here are a few pictures that i've taken recently (some on my new iphone! if anyone has and fun tips, tricks, apps...anything to do with the iphone  i'd be thrilled to hear. i'm new to the apple world).

my mom and i were invited to seth's baptism. aren't he and his daddy so handsome?
 how has it been 8 years already?
 stone is at a phase that he won't take a great photo


 after the baptism we changed in the car in the church parking lot after everyone had left....classy right?
after we changed in the car we hit up the dairy keen in heber. so yum! while in utah we stayed with my brother and his cute family.....isn't baby luke just stunning?

 my brothers back yard is beautiful.
 he's so big

 playing at the park
 he looks just like his daddy

Hooray! I'm so glad you are back. I know what you mean about being a flawed person. I hope life is looking progressively brighter from where you've been. One thing about it all, life is hard. You always hear that, but it seems like the older I get the more I believe it. Wonderful, but so hard. I love you. I love your blog. I love the cute pictures of Stone, and I cannot wait to hear more!!!

I'm glad your back and noticed you've been MIA. It's sad that the internet is the only way we keep in contact. Life is crazy and hard! Being a mom is crazy and hard, but worth it. Everyone has flaws. Everyone makes mistakes. And everyone needs to feel loved. It's hard to want to put your life out there for everyone. I totally understand. It's a constant battle I have with blogger! That's great you got to go to Seth's baptism. Crazy that its been 8 years! Stone is adorable and getting so big! They grow up fast!

I have missed your blogging SOOO Much!!!! Stone is so big now!!! Thank you for sharing these photos, they truly gave me an insight and peace into what the future can and will look like. My daughter is almost 2 and though I'm moving forward it's still a significant experience. Seth is such a handsome and I'm sure kind and loving young man!

I'm glad you're back although I totally understand the blog getting put on the back burner. Life happens and sometimes you just have to have faith and keep on going.

Yes, we noticed! Glad to have you back, and glad life is getting back on track. Stone is adorable as always :-)
