Real life buds

I mentioned yesterday that I am thankful for blog buds.  I am also thankful for real life buds.  Two of my IRL buds, have been absolutely amazing and supportive over the past 6 plus tough months.  Julie and Dorothy have had late night meetings with me, sometimes weekly, sometimes bi-weekly, whatever we could fit in.  

Julie is an amazing amateur photographer and she is great.  A few weeks ago, she took pictures of my kids and of our entire family.  She and Dorothy surprised me with a shutterfly book.  I photographed a few of the pages and they are below.  They also had a canvas portrait of Akila's picture made which is the bottom picture.  I am truly blessed beyond words.

Julie did a fantastic job with the photos, and those books are gorgeous. Oh, how happy I am that you have Julie and Dorothy as your sistas! You are so loved.

And that pic of Akila is FANTASTIC.
