My little sister Abby just did a very fun impromptu photo shoot with her friend Chelsea! I loved all of these pictures so much I had to post them! How darling does she make an umbrella look?!
I absolutely adore this girl! She is gorgeous(obviously), she is beyond hilarious, an amazing athlete, witty, caring, a heavy sleeper(if you think a cat can sleep a long time you have not met abby "the girl who hibernates all year round"!), and one of my very best friends (my other two being my mom and my sister Mike:))
Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

"Each of us will have our own Fridays- those days when teh univers itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death - Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.
No matter our desperation, not matter our grief, Sunday will come. In this life or the next Sunday will come." - Elder Wirthlin
"Trust in the Lord. Just when all seems to be going right, challenges often come in multiple doses applied simultaneously. when those trials are not consequences of your disobedience, they are evidence that the Lord feels you are prepared to grow more. He therefore give you experiences that stimulate growth, understanding and compassion, which polish you for your everlasting benefit. To get you from where you are to where He wants you to be requires a lot of stretching, and that generally entails discomfort and pain." - Richard G. Scott
"Through it all, I ahve gained a testimony that our challenge is to surrender our will to our Heavenly Father because only then can we personally be refined and polished in the ways He has specifically designed for each of us."
