43 of 52


Where you in any pictures this week?

I am participating in a year long challenge with Carin. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. Fun challenge, right? You can join too! Visit Carin on Thursdays, so that you can check out other Moms pictures.
This is my Mother in law and I, while I was in Portland on vacation. She has not always been fond of me and finally about a year ago something broke in our friendship and it has been a wonderful thing for me. I guess it just took 20 years for approval.

I know the feeling a bit Robyn...but what a beautiful thing that relationship can be when there is a friendship. I'll hold on for the 20 year mark. ;-)

I am so lucky that I have a wonderful MIL. We live 4 miles apart and we get along great. I am truly blessed.

It's too funny, that my husband and I were just talking about 'inlaws' last night!
While it's not been an easy road.. I am thankful for them..and each year we seem to get closer and closer. So glad you gained her approval :)

Hi Robyn, I wrote a post about this a few months ago. I'm glad you're doing this. Since I had a big revelation on getting my picture taken I just get in any picture I'm asked to and smile, smile, smile!
