I have some not so good news and some really great news to share. In using the "band aid" removal method (quick and fast) I will get the sadness out of the way. I lost a friend over the weekend, in mourning my loss I found that this quote gives me much comfort.

"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality." - Emily Dickinson

Todd, I love you dearly and will forever remember our time as neighbors, friends and family.

On to the fabulous news I just received while writing this blog... I am going to be an Auntie x 3! I have two rowdy nephews that rock my world and now my brother and his wifey are expecting again! My fingers are crossed for a niece that I can shower with pink and lace and glitter and barbies and cupcakes and all that frilly girl stuff my nephews laugh at me for loving! Being Aunt KeeKee is one of the best things in my life, I am so thankful for my wonderful family!

Thank you again to everyone for being so encouraging! Hope your weekend was full of love, laughter and fun.
