A Different Kind of Family Time...

My day got to start with a package sent from my mom. I was so excited to get something in the mail, and then I saw what was inside the package and I got even more excited. My mom, as most people know, is a creative genius! You can follow her blog, Paper Parfait, to understand fully. Anyways, she altered a photo album and made it beautiful and then placed images reminding me of home in it. I know my words don't do this album justice so I took some pictures to show off! 
album created by my amazing mother, MIM!

After receiving this album and looking at it over and over again I then hopped on the computer and saw that I received a message from my cousins. Two of them are getting ready to head off to college and I am so excited for them! The younger of the three is also the only girl, and she is about to see the perks  of being the only child. I love facebook, not just for the stalking factor, but because it keeps me connected with everyone. 

Then, I got to visit my sister's blog to see what she is up to. Once again, just another great thing about technology... I think everyone should have a blog and post their updates on that instead of Facebook.. .I think everyone would appreciate that.

And after being on the computer, I got a text from my Dad and got to talk to him a bit. 

On top of all of this, I got to talk to Katie today during her lunch break and catch up on her life and past weekend. 

I am so thankful for all this technology because it keeps me in touch and up to date with everyone. In a way, I felt like I got some family/friend time in today which is great because this past week things have finally been really setting in. I am realizing that I am not just on vacation, and that I don't get to see the ones I love as often as I wish. I am not going to complain, because thankfully I am still only about a 6 hour drive away. So, instead of complaining, I am going to be thankful that I have such amazing and loving people in my life to miss. 
Just some of the people that I love and miss! 


  1. Oh, this was the sweetest thing ever! Thank you! And you are right, texts, blogs, facebook, photo texts, these things really do help! I wish all these would have been available when I ventured from Indiana to Arizona all by myself. So, they are great, but what I wouldn't do for one of your hugs right now. Love you!

  2. I love this post, including the pictures! :) PS this is panda
