Families are FOREVER

I am so grateful for my eternal family. I love them with all of my heart. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better family.

I love my brothers so much. Even though they are both younger than me, I look up to them SO MUCH. They both are such great examples to me. Some say they feel bad for me that I don't have any sisters... I'm not! I wouldn't change my family of only brothers for anything.

 I am truely blessed to have found my soul mate. I love my husband Nate more than I can express. We have only been married 1 year and a half, but we have been through SO much together. He is my rock. The person who always puts a smile on my face. My eternal companion. My BEST friend.  I love you Nate, you mean the world to me.

And last, but not least, my AMAZING parents. I honestly do not know what I would do without them. They raised me exactly like I want to raise my kids. They have been the picture perfect parents. Never fought, always loved eachother and always showed their love for their kids.  I have been so blessed. I love my family.
And a last little thanks to my awesome Uncle Dave for taking these family pictures. Thank you for taking time away from your family to do this for us :) You're the best.

He's home!!!

Elder Zach Dastrup has returned home after a 2 year mission in Fresno, California. He was greatly missed!!! Here Nate and I are waiting anxiously for Zach to come down the stairs... never been so excited!
It's SUPER dark and blurry... but we were obviously too excited to see him to pay any attention to the camera. He's home!!! Greatest hug of all time!

At his homecoming. He did an AMAZING job!

And of course... Roxy had to come and play too.
