After a devastating start with the passing of my step-sister Krista and her newborn baby girl, I definitely began the month with a new perspective...savoring every second with my family and friends...hugging my husband just a little tighter...taking just one extra moment to tell someone I love them... simply looking at life a bit differently.
In the following weeks, I spent time going to birthday parties, a 40th wedding anniversary for my amazing and inspiring in-laws, going to the pumpkin patch with my sister, her hubby and their newborn baby boy (Ben!), and being blessed by two beautiful baby showers and a 30th birthday party thrown by amazing family and friends.
Although it was a month filled with tragedy, it was also filled with hope. Thank you to all of you who filled my October with so many precious moments and memories.
Here are a couple of pics from October...
