I have definitely been blessed with amazing neighbors. I absolutely LOVE where I live, and all of my neighbors are a huge part of that. Shane and Kelsey happen to be my backyard neighbors! I always love the mowing lawn run-ins and showing each other our random animals finds in our yards. :)Read More
There's something about red heads that just make them extra cute. Why is that?? Little Ainsley turned one and they had a watermelon theme! 'One in a Melon'. What makes it even better is she got to eat half a water melon in her lap. Why can't that be cute for adults??Read More
There is nothing sweeter than a little 2 year old boy with white blonde hair and CURLS!

They are high school sweethearts and have been dating 5 years!
