    Nostalgia
    Sometimes I get in moods where I want to reminisce. A few days ago with was with my pcitures; i went through pretty much every photo on my computer which included pics from all my outreaches and early ywam days. It all started when my friend Laura and I were having lunch at this cute little Italian place. I'm not sure how we got started on the subject but I was telling a story from my time in Morocco and it got me thinking about how I really tend to compartmentalize my life. I don't know if it's because I've moved so much and usually in blocks of 5 or so years so that it's easy to wrap up all the thoughts and memories about a place and put it on the back burner or what. But it's weird..and maybe like this for everyone I don't know but I just can't help but think about how if you grow up in the same place your whole life it would feel different because even though you probably have different friends as you grow older, you're still in the same place with probably a lot of the same people.

    Anyway all that to say, the other day was pictures, tonight it's music. I'm looking through all my old CD's and having a blast putting a bunch of old school stuff on my ipod. And I'm not gonna lie, my Hanson CD is playing in the background and I am THOROUGHLY enjoying it :) And that's the first Hanson CD with mmmbop, not their new stuff. And Yearbook is by far the best song on the album. Anyone else know what song I'm talking about? Come on..admit it...

    Here's some old pics I found that I was like...awww

    summer tour 05..i totally forgot we went to DC on this trip!

    little Sophia whose like... 4 now? 5?


    this pic is hilarious because it is the first picture of Craig and I. We took it on the timer of his camera. This was before we were supposed to be dating lol

    the triple L's ;)

    Our first real recording! We were so excited. Why do I have braids lol

    One of the most amazing nights of my life. I can't believe this picture even exists. Maybe it does so God can remind me that miracles still happen.

    Picachu and mario! the Porter kids' dream

    I love this pic..it was at something in Winkler, a fundraiser I think? Heather asked me to play a few songs and I was so honored :)

      I finally bought a photo album and organized my ywam pics...I have it on my coffee table to entertain people with, even the "crevasse" pics. we were a weird group.

      ahhhh Jamie...the Triple LLL's...what a wonderful time in my life. I often do the same things, after moving around and having such wonderful, deep, real friendships...the kind where you know if you go out for coffee or h-dogs that you could pick up right where you left off.

      My YWAM days forever changed me in more ways than one..and still remain the best moments of my life (other than the day my son was born!)

      I miss you all, my beautiful and wonderfully gifted friends...we need a reunion...i'm willing to host!!!

      Love you, JL :)
