here is my grandma & pop pop with max. they're the sweetest people on the planet, and they love their grandkids so much. that is what kills me the most. the thought of what could be.
onto something more light.. when looking for that picture, i found this.
oh. my. god. i really don't remember being that huge. but thankfully, i think, i found this picture and now it's all coming back to me. good thing the little guy that came outta there is freakishly handsome.
i'm heading to the river later today. i'll be celebrating labor day weekend with my family & river friends. this is the way i celebrate it every year (except last year, we were at the beach)
max last labor day - he seems so small here. boooo hoo, momma gets sad seeing her little guy grow. funny thing is he hasn't grown that much, he still fits into those trunks & those shoes. probably the shirt too but i think we handed that down to my nephew.
last, but not least. we're coming up on the anniversary of "the flood". i'll leave you with this, just know a post is to come on this. one of the most tragic, sad things that's happened to me in my life.
this is my old office. most people could care less if their work floods. my work is owned by my family. i'm a huge part of it, 10 years invested, and my future to come. it was total destruction, a total loss. not only that, but our cabin at the river? destroyed (but we fixed 'er up!). and what else? my best friend's house? covered in water, and by covered i mean TO the roof. another total loss. it was a devastating turn of events, many tears were cried, much sweat was shed. but everyone was safe & sound, and we've all rebuilt. a total before & after post to come on that later!
this post has been a bit of happy & sad, which wasn't my intention when i started writing. but that's what's on my mind this morning. i hope you all have an amazing, safe, and happy labor day weekend. enjoy!
