I've been so behind. Perhaps it's summer....perhaps it's that I now have a teenager and a pre-teen living in my house...of which I am FINALLY use to. Every day is a different, challenging day, but I'm no longer having crying, stressful fits. I'm learning to let go of the things I can't control.
To say our summer has been busy is an understatement. We've been doing so much it's hard to remember exactly what day of what month it is!
For the 4th of July we went with one of my BFF's to her parents house in DC for the holiday. It was fantastic. I felt like I was with my family and I honestly, with all my heart, adore my BFF and her family. Crystal and I met online a couple of years ago or so but didn't really get to know each other until probably last year. As she said the other day "you're my thick". And she means it. And I have to say, there is only one other person in this entire world who knows me as well as Crystal does. She's been my rock, my best friend and someone I adore with all of my heart. She is my "thick".
So here we are with her family for the holiday weekend.
Crystal is in the middle with her dad and mom to her right and her daughter and her sister to her left.
Of course LW and I are here with Kassidy. I think I'm trying to pull off a sexy pose here!

Me and Crystal....aw
Also this summer we had Lauren's graduation party in Ohio. We picked a super hot day to have an outdoor party, but it was fun and the kids all seemed to really enjoy themselves.
