Our first celebration this year was with my family in Iowa. It was a great a visit. We stayed with my sister Sarah and her family. Ten years ago Sarah was headed down a pretty rough road so now it's extra sweet to spend time with her and her beautiful family. My heart bursts with happiness and pride when I see the lovely life she's created for herself and how dedicated and selfless she is as a mom. It's a funny feeling when you start to "look up" to your younger sister.
I would have liked to have taken more pictures but here are few moments we did capture on film.
