Meeting Baby Samuel

I’m going to go ahead and warn you – this post has some really adorable baby pictures.  Like, ridiculously tiny and cute and.. well, it may just make your ovaries ache.  Adam and I decided three years ago that we were not having any more babies, but this little guy is just so sweet and snuggly and it really had me thinking that maybe we should just have one more.  After how the rest of the weekend went though, I was cured.. mostly.

2013 Bainbridge Half Marathon

Bainbridge will always have a very special place in my heart.  I’ve never actually lived there myself, but it is the town where my parents grew up and most of my extended family lives there now.  It’s the place we visited countless times throughout my childhood, and since I was a Navy Brat, it was the one place that always felt like home.  A few months ago, my aunt told me that they were doing a half marathon to benefit the local hospital & nursing home, I really wanted to sign up.  The hospital is where many of my family members are born, where I spent a lot of time hanging out with Mama Carra (my great-grandma), and where I said goodbye to my Papa Merk and Granny Moore.  The race was also held the same weekend as my Granny’s birthday, which made it extra special.  I was a bit gun-shy to sign up since I’d never run a half, but right after we returned from Orlando, where I ran the Princess Half, I signed up and couldn’t wait!

Walking for Aunt Threasa

My Aunt Threasa was diagnosed with breast cancer last month. Thankfully they caught it early and removed the cancerous cells and she doesn’t need any chemo or radiation. We are all very, very thankful. She is a wonderful aunt and we need her to stick around for quite a while longer. In her honor, my family got together to do a breast cancer awareness walk in Thomasville. READ MORE

Family Reunion

My mom, dad and I went to Bainbridge this weekend for the Black/Norman family reunion. I hadn’t been to one in a few years, and my Papa Black asked that we bring Braden so that he could show him off. Papa never asks for anything, so there’s no way I could say no (plus, I haven’t been to Bainbridge since April, so I wanted to go see everyone). We had a great time – Braden got to meet Aunt Louise finally and spend some time with my dads side of the family before the reunion! READ MORE
