Excited for the summer.

In general while I was growing up I preferred to hang out with the boys. Girls can be vicious and lets face it, boys are just so much easier to get along with. I have a few best girl friends that have stuck with me over the years and I'm getting better at hanging out with other women as I get older, but I still have to step out of my comfort zone when making new friends.
One of the great things about marrying into Michelangelo's large family was that I'd gone to school or been in band with four of his seven sisters, they are great, the two oldest are very accepting of people and his littlest sister was 8, so therefore I was a novelty at the time, she loved me, plus she's just a great person. I knew when we were dating that I could get along with all of these girls. They may have had their doubts about me, but we've made it work, right? ;)  After all being able to get along with family is pretty important, because we are talking eternity here.

 Then our siblings started dating. When my sister in law got engaged I started thinking about the future. I was pretty sure I could get a long with any decent guy who married my sisters or sister in laws, not that I would have any say, (both men are fantastic by the way). I wondered how would I handle the women that married into the family?
Despite my previous worries when my brother proposed to K around Christmas time I couldn't have been happier. I love this girl who will be my new sister. I love her zest for life, and she understands what is truly important. She loves the gospel and she is the best thing that could have happened to my little brother. Thanks for that K! I look forward to a lot of fun experiences with this girl.

Yeah for June!

I love that bottom picture of us! Is that from the open house? Oh, I'm so excited for June and I just love you so much, Vee! You have been such a wonderful friend to me from the beginning. One of my fondest memories of us together is that first night we met and we giggled on the couch together for that half hour before Heidi opened her presents :) I love you and I'm so grateful for you!
