Over the last few months, well almost a year, a childhood friend of mine has lived in the hospital with her daughter who has been battling heart problems. Just before Christmas they were told that she would need a new heart. I'm not a parent yet but I can start to fathom what it would be like to know that someone else has to lose their little one in order for yours to live.
On Friday evening Sofi was prepped and ready for transplant, and at 2am on Saturday morning Sofi's new heart was put in place!! She had a bit of a rough patch but she's now doing better then expected!!
I'm overwhelmed with excitement and relief for Krissy and Mike!! and Sofi of course!!
There's still a lot that she'll have to go through, but getting to this point was the hardest! Her old heart actually stopped beating just before they put the new one in. Only God has perfect timing like that.
Please keep Krissy and Mike and Sofi in your prayers!!
and smile because Miricles do happen!! Sofi is here today becaues of God's amazing love and perfect timing!!

I saw this quote last week and have been dying to scrap it.. but I ran into a dilemma -- what pictures do I use. I thought it would be too cheesy to use a wedding picture. Of course wedding pictures mean forever, but what other pictures of the two of us do i have that i love and have this quote at the very essence of the picture.
So I turned to my ever true facebook and looked through all my pictures and found one of our engagement pictures. I'm so in love with this now. Although it's an engagement picture, i think it's just totally Brian and I. Fun and playful, but totally in love.
I'm so happy with how this turned out. I still have some journaling to do and some bling to add but I love how it is right now.
