Springtime hikes in the beautiful outdoors...it's like opening a big present when the weather shines new and the earth wakes up enough for us to get outside and hike.

The best man in our wedding and
one of our childhood friends came to visit us!
It was such a special reunion. Tim has a forever spot in our hearts and lives.
THEN and NOW
As spring was closing and shortly before summer peeked around the corner,
we grabbed a Saturday and headed down to Snook's Bottom, a local lake in our town
for a picnic.
It was even warm enough to swim!
And just like that, another spring is over and life quickly breezes on.
We take a minute to snap our lives
so these speedy moments in time will last forever.
These everydays are the best days.
We take a breath and leap for more.
