~Me with The Four Sisters~

~I know I promised you pictures of me with "The Four Sisters" but it's been really hard on me since they left on Jan 28th.....(just 2 weeks ago today)
It's the first time in 19 years that I haven't had Alli here. It hit me harder than I thought it would and I've been trying to keep my mind off of it by visiting all of your wonderful blogs and keeping busy around the house.
I will post more, but for now,
this is the only one I could muster up to share with you.
From Left to Right:
Me, (Amy the Mom)
Alli (sister #3),
Ashley (sister #1),
Kristi (sister #2)
and last but not least, Maddi (sister #4)
Love and Hugs,
(Don't forget to enter my Vintage Lace, Book and Buttons Giveaway)
