Anyways enough with the sad stuff; lately I have been posting a lot of pictures so I'm going to continue down that road. Here are a lot of pictures that I stumbled upon while making my mom's X-mas gift. Some are really old and some are kind of old... but they are all special to me! I find it funny that I'm posting this at 1:30 am, but hey if you can't sleep might as well do something productive... well sort of. A lot of them at the beginning are of me and my cousins Nicole & Alaina. I've known them my entire life and we are closer than sisters. :) Also I kind of did a before and after with some of the shots! (And just for your information, the last picture of me and my cousins - we have on our Greek dance costume; one of the many. I miss dancing!)
My cat Buddy who I was extremely close with. Sweetest cat in the entire world; we had to put him asleep a year ago because he had cancer
Me and my older step-bro Cameron and then me and my little bro Landon
Now these are the pictures of my step-dad; I'll definitely have more posts of him coming up.
This first one was over Memorial weekend and the second one was over Labor Day weekend this year. My step-dad is in his wheel-chair in this picture along with my step bro Cam and my two nephews Isaac and Jaxon in the first one; the second is with those same four, but my sister-in-law, my mom, and me. This wasn't too long ago, and yet my step-dad is a lot worse than he is in both of these pictures. But the second one is our most recent picture we have.
Here are some of me and my step-dad when I was little. I've known him since I was 3 years old... so when I say it's like I'm losing my dad, it's the truth.
This next picture really hits home for me. Every time I see it, I start crying. It means something, actually everything to me. It is the last time and will forever be the last time that me and my step-dad will ever be able to dance together. This was at a wedding in 08' and the song "My Girl" came on, and I jumped up and grabbed him from across the room and we danced to it. It was a feeling I got that I cannot describe; something was telling me that I needed to dance with him. We had a great time and my mom got this picture. I know my step-dad won't be there to dance with me at my wedding, but this memory will be.
To me, a picture speaks a thousand words. The memories that cascade off of a picture is overwhelming. And though these pictures probably don't mean much to you, but they mean everything to me.
