"You're Gonna Miss This" Trace Adkins
Right around this week each year, it becomes more and more clear...
Time goes by so very fast.
If you're not careful, you're liable to be thrown into the new year without a warning. Leaving you wishing you could remember all that took place in the past few months.
It's less than 6 weeks. The time between now and 2012.
And I want to appreciate those weeks for all that they are.
This past weekend got me thinking.
Recognizing even more...
How important it is to value time.
My brother, Nicholas', birthday was on Friday.
Somehow, in the blink of an eye, my little brother...
We went out to dinner to celebrate.
Dad Me Nicholas and Mom
and the celebrating continued...
Nicholas and I have seen each other through a lot in our years.
Both of us ready for a country concert...My totally awesome stonewashed jeans and bright white socks...Our enormous cowboy hats...And Nicholas' adorable "very enthusiastic" little face!!
I'm so lucky to be able to call my brother one of my closest friends.
Cheers to 25, Nicholas!!
I was so happy to catch up and see this little girl and her Mama, after they'd been away on vacation.
Saturday was filled with 2 more birthdays.
Steve's friend, Jamie, celebrated his 35th.
Steve and Jamie.
It was a fun night. Steve got to catch up with many old familiar faces and talk about the good ol' days.
Yesterday, I met Aubrey.
My stepsister's beautiful, new daughter. She is so tiny. Has a gorgeous head of shiny brown hair. And is beyond lovable.
We've got a big bird in our freezer. In less than 48 hours we'll be waking up to thaw that sucker and start preparing for our Thanksgiving.
We're hosting it.
As I look back on the past few days...these photos honoring lives...
Lives of all ages...
I'm reminded of what a true blessing time can be.
If you allow it to, time will be one of your greatest gifts.
And one of your most cherished fortunes.
"You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this"
Happy Tuesday Everyone!!
Almost Thanksgiving Lovin',
