Making Memories

I had an amazing weekend.

Saturday I was able to get a ton of running around done, as well as buy yummy goodies for our Sunday adventure.

Sunday Chris and I headed to a winery in NH (http://www.zorvino.com/) with Michael and Kara.
Kara was nice enough to take our engagement photos {WHICH CAME OUT AMAZING!}
We took the opportunity to enjoy a wine tasting and have a picnic, you know...quality family time (:
The winery was beautiful, and they even had bocce courts set up- so we had to play a game lol

It was such a great day full of love...love that Chris and I have for each other...Michael and Kara's love...and the love we all share as family.

There was also a wedding at the winery that day, so we tried to stay out of the way until they headed inside for the reception.

Speaking of weddings; M&K's is RIGHT around the corner, just 11 days away! So excited for them <3

Here's a few shot's from Sunday:

As you can see- it's was a great day.

I hope everyone has a good week!

Gone Too Soon

This past weekend was a sad one. Thursday night, a close friend (practically family) passed away so unexpectedly, and much too soon. She was like an aunt to me when I was young, and she was only 52...

My heart aches for her family...her husband, son, and daughter (who I went to school with)...such a sad thing.

I cannot imagine losing my partner, my other half, or my mother for that matter. I judt don't think that I could handle it.

I managed to hold myself together tonight (the memorial service), that is, until Josh (her son) sang her faveorite song...accoustic. I finally had my moment to break down.

I pray for the family to have ease while going through this hard time.

Love your friends and family while you have them, love them with passion...don't let stupid things occlude what really matters...these people won't be around forever.

With a heavy heart- I leave you with the song her son sang.
