memories to warm the heart.

[circa 1993, front row: Jon, Geoff, Anna--

I think everyone has a certain part of their lives where they truly wish they could freeze time. Whether it was three years ago, today, or still to come, whether it was just a moment, a whole day, or a whole summer. Everyone has a time in their life where they wish everything would just stop. The world would stop turning and people would stop changing because to them, at that time, everything was perfect.”

last night we went to my aunt jill's house for her annual halloween get together... it was a blast! we ate yummy monster dogs and chili & then ventured to the enchanted forest for a night of fall fun. the air was brisk, the children were bundled up warm, & giggles filled the air.

as we sat on the hay ride, my nieces & nephews cuddled up, i looked out to the beautiful forest & tried to breathe it all in... wishing i could freeze time.

but i know that they will never forget such wonderful times & they will remember them fondly, just as i am able to with my treasured childhood memories.

we are so blessed to have such moments to cherish.
& for that,
i am so very thankful.
