baby you're a firework...

As expected we had a wonderful time in Omaha with my brother and his family. It was a weekend filled with laughter, superheroes, princesses, and lots of smiles. My niece Lauren and nephew Brandon are pretty much the cutest things. Take a look...

{being princesses for the day!}

{we did many, MANY fireworks.. but my favorite were the simplest...the Japanese lanterns}

{please notice how lauren is flashing her 'brass' knuckles}

While we truly had an amazing weekend we also got some horrible news. A close family friend died unexpectedly. This of course has devasted my family. I continue to keep both families in my thoughts to make it through such a difficult time. It's hard when someone leaves us far too early. Hug your loved ones extra hard today for me.

In happier news... I also heard from my oldest friend Kristen that she is engaged! I'm so happy for my dear friend... she deserves to be over the moon in love. Congratulations sweet friend!

xoxo
