It's hard to believe June is almost over! This month has been packed to the brim with outside work, a little bit of school, and new life as an intern.  

Evan gets home in a week and I can't wait to officially start summer. This means: camping, swimming, s'mores, back porch sitting, sun tea, and so much more. I am sure he is going to feel overwhelmed when he gets home and hears all of the things I have in store for him!

I'm thinking about picking him up from the airport with balloons which is the only way to start the summer off right! haha!

Filling Frames

 It gets lonely while Evan is on tour, so I often find little tasks to do so I don't think too hard on it. Tonight I am filling frames that have needed pictures in them for months.  That cutie above is my Grandma Jones who passed away when I was 5.  I only have a couple of memories of her. One of them is that she always had Hens and Chicks growing at her house. That is why we used them in our wedding and I will always have them in our home.

  Another memory I have of her is when I helped her find the prize winning egg on Easter.  I spied on my uncles when they hid it and then showed her where it was. Although I don't have a lot of memories of her, I have a huge love for her. I can't explain it. But it's there.

I think one of the reasons, though, is my mom.

My grandma raised 8 kids, including my mom.  She is the best mother anyone could ask for. My mom often tells me stories about my grandma and I know she was a huge role model for my mom when it came time for her to be a mother.  

I have some amazing role models when it comes time for me to be a mother.  I still miss Evan, but when I think of these things I stop feeling sorry for myself.

I really am so lucky.
