Beautiful girls

What a blessing it was to see my sister positively glowing with accomplishment at her awards ceremony last Friday. I am so inspired by her determination and will, and also by her genuine care and kindness -- her honest to goodness southern hospitality is a beautiful thing to behold.
I am grateful that I got to spend some time with my mom, showing off my little nest to her and sharing a train ride into New York city where we shared a mutual delight for the city and it's spectacular sights...what a wonderful thing it was to see her beaming with wonder at it all as we shared a horse carriage through Central Park. She is so lovely inside and out and Erin and I are lucky to have been influenced by her example in our lives!


  1. Congrats to EK and hurray for having such fun company!

  2. Very lucky indeed! I'm infinitely blessed to have been able to share the experience with three of my most loved people :) I wish the whole family would have been there, but it was wonderful knowing they were all behind me. Thanks for *your* southern hospitality - kirk and I had a fantastic time in your little 'nest' :)
