When I think of some pretty special people in my life, two always come to mind ~ Nathan and Brooke. Sneaky little buggers were able to put together a surprise dinner with some of my close girlfriends and family to help me celebrate my new year of life. 34, wow, can you believe where the time has gone? And to think of all that I have been blessed with to be able to do and accomplish in such a short time ~ with my biggest accomplishment being my son ~ Tristan.
I look back on the last 34 years and see how much I've grown and I think about everything I've learned from all the people I've come in contact with over the years. I take it all in and realize how much I truly love my family, I love my friends, and I love my life as a whole. I am truly grateful to be able to spend my life with so many great people!! And I look forward to many more exciting years to come. I could not ask for anything more in my life. I love you guys!!

|Courtney ~ one of my besties from high school. Oh the memories of cruising and learning to drive a stick shift. I love you!|
|Sarah's enthusiasm for the world deserves two pictures. She's just a ball of joy! I love you!|
|Katie, Katie, Katie....what can I say about her? She's beautiful, caring, and always there for you. We've been friends since 7th grade - right when I moved to KS from TX. She has always been a core component to my life. I love you!|
|Brea and I became friends in college through my lovely sister Brooke. She's stuck by me like honey on a bear's nose and is also brutally honest - but hey, that's why I love her. I can trust her. I love you!|
|Amy ~ I'd love to say my sister, but we are truly sister in laws. She's the cutest thing since sliced bread - ha! I love how our friendship has developed over the years. Near or far ~ we've always been close. I love you!|
|Tara ~ what a great sister! She's always there to make you laugh when you need to and so fun to hang out with!! I am overjoyed at how close we've become over the years! I love you!!|
|My second mother ~ Tammy. I love her to death. She's done so much for me and my family, I cannot express how much she means to me and how much I owe her. She's the most loving woman ever! I love you!|
