So lately, I think because it was just Shaylee Linnea's, my neice and goddaughter, birthday, I've been thinking about family alot. I've built quite the little adopted family here in the Quad Cities. I love the people that I've met and all the wonderful friends that I've made. It's strange isn't it? How we build these communities of family for ourselves no matter where we are. Crazy!
But nothing can replace the family that God gives you. Luckily, even though I'm far away from them, there are places like Blogger and Facebook, and pictures and things so that I can be kept up to date on the goings on in the lives of those I love.
So like a month ago, my brother and sister-in-law sent me pictures of them and my beautiful neice Shaylee. So naturally the first thing I did was to take them to work and put them up on the wall of my cubicle. Actually I put them on the front of one of the cabinets in my cubicle. It has been so fun to have these pictures to show off. And of course the first thing anyone asks about the pictures is always, "Who is that beautiful little girl?" It is so much fun getting to reply, "That is my neice, Shaylee!" So now I just have to get more pictures, probably ones I can print from my computer to put up of other family members so that I can show everyone off. So yeah. Fun times!
Happy Belated Birthday Shaylee! There will be a card coming from your Aunt Sara very soon! Love you all tons!
