Well, this is the first time I've opened my computer since my last post. I've really enjoyed just spending time with my girl. She's growing up so incredibly fast. I love writing about Amelia and what's new, but I've felt the need to back away from the blog a little and be fully present with her...to really enjoy the moments and worry less about getting a picture or recording each and every one of them. I'm not sure that makes sense to anyone but me. I still take lots of pictures but so many of them are taken with my phone anymore. Some have asked what we've been up to over the past few weeks - so here's just a little bit of what's going on with The Averitt Fam.
Amelia and I took a road trip to see my parents. We had such a great time with them.
Always makes me wish we lived closer after being with them for a few days.
My oldest nephew, Ty, graduated from high school. I still can't believe he's 18. I remember when I took him to pick out supplies for kindergarten...he chose a Tommy Hilfiger lunch box. That still makes me laugh to this day. I had to fight back the "ugly cry" at his graduation. Didn't need to draw the attention off the graduates and onto my sobbing-self, but man was it emotional to see him up on that stage!
We celebrated the marriage of Clay & Mary Lee!
She was a gorgeous bride and it was a beautiful wedding.
I loved having a reason to dress up and get out of yoga pants for the evening!
We headed to my parents again and celebrated Memorial Day with lots of family!
Amelia was sick for a couple of days.
We've had lunch with friends!
We've played in the pool a lot.
I started a new book!
We had our first snow cone of the season!
And tonight Amelia's favorite buddy is spending the night with us. :)
I've been reading some blogs from my phone but blogger hasn't allowed me to comment lately. I hope to catch up with you all soon! I hope you're staying cool (this heat is brutal) and making lots of memories with your family.
Love to all,
