With JunkFest 2011 under my belt, I've decided it's time to take a deep breath, back up, regain my focus on what's important, and take note of the little things (that are really the BIG things in disguise).
On a recent family journey for a beautiful wedding celebration for a FABULOUS couple...I wanted to take the opportunity to show my kids a memorial on which my baby brother's name and photo is forever inscribed. His photo is on the right, at the age of 23.
I wanted this short visit to remind my kids, and myself, that how we spend our days is more precious than we know... and sometimes we get caught up in the crazy chaos around us without even realizing it.
So once in a while, we have to remind ourselves to
S L O W D O W N ! ! !
Got it? OK.
Enough of me being sappy and all. And I think I speak for all the JunkFest Girls when I say...that even though we are in "back to family" mode now, we had a BLAST at JunkFest! And we are super excited to be making plans already for next year...with some exciting changes to come with it.
Up next....SALE PHOTOS !!!

And I'm sending one through cyberspace for you!
What a neat post, Missy. I'm sure it seems hard to believe it's been nine years. Hugs!ReplyDelete
Wow Missy, my heart goes out to you. Thanks for sharing this special and intimate post of a loss of your loved one. It's a good reminder for all of us to live each day to the fullest and to truly remember the important things in life as we go through our days and get caught up in the chaos.ReplyDelete
Thanks girlie. Prayers go out for you and your family.
