• Emy is Graduating!

this day all too well.  My house of roommates were all emotional. As we approached graduation, our hugs lasted a few seconds longer,  our time at our house became more precious and our “I love you’s” more frequent. We knew the end was coming. The days of sharing clothes, staying up to 3am and cooking “family” dinners were almost over.  My years living with my best friends at CNU were incredible and I’m SO thankful that when my sister went to Virginia Tech, she had the same experience.  Emy found some amazing girlfriends that  changed her life when she came to VT!

They have lived together in “The Kitchen” for a couple of years have literally become a little family. So today is graduation. Today they will be “officially” done and ready to move on to their new phase of life!!  It’s a crazy transition and I’m not going to sugarcoat it and say it’s going to be easy.  It’s not. Leaving your best friends who have also become your FAMILY is a hard task! …. But they’re ready for it:)  Despite the tears and fears and disappointment that this amazing life phase is coming to an end, they’re ready to go out into the world and do MAGNIFICENT things for the Lord. Whether that’s through a ministry or an office job, it’s going to be awesome and I’m so SO excited for them!!!!! So I’m at VT for a few days to celebrate with my family and Emy, but a few weeks ago I visited and was able to shoot ONE LAST set of Family portriats! Enjoy and Have a fabulous weekend!!!!!!!
