Seniors are just my favorite. Young, old … I don’t care. I love them. But my biggest soft spot is for the high school types. There is something about seeing each unique personality bubble up to the surface during the course of our time. It makes my heart the happiest. Continue reading
I know it’s basically impossible by the numbers for me to have a niece (the youngest one) looking forward to graduating high school, but it’s true! I had the distinct honor and privilege to spend the morning with the very beautiful, smart, funny and mildly inappropriate (I don’t know where she gets it!) miss Lindsey a few weeks back to do some senior photos.

I drove to Hastings a couple weeks ago to meet one of my second cousins who is also a senior this year. I don’t know Maddy that well, but my goodness, she’s a sweet, sweet girl.

I posted a photo via Instagram a week or so ago and boy oh boy, did I have some ladies talking. I didn’t realize it until I was at a fundraiser Tuesday night and one of my favorites asked, ‘ok, so who’s the guy?’ I lol’d and said, ‘well, he’s my cousin.’ Second cousin, actually, but he sure is cute isn’t he? And, he’s half my age. I’m not sure what that says about me. Does he look older?
