It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Throw Back Thursday

In January, while the "new" girls were visiting us for the holidays, we headed to Michigan for a few days to celebrate a birthday, play in the snow,  get dental care from our favorite dentist, and spend time with loved ones. My friend Heidi took these pictures in her living room as we were getting ready to leave. What I love is how she really captures my kids...part of this is because she is just talented...but I know a bigger part is that she loves them!

So excited to finally publicly share these pictures as this week's TBT!
