Some of my favorite memories are those made with my cousins. Yesterday we were driving home from the mall in Cool Springs–a forty-five minute drive–while listening to music. Even in these small moments, it’s enough to appreciate just being together. From shopping at the mall, going to a bible study at church, having dance parties to 80’s music in the living room, watching Jane Eyre, sipping coffee, eating donuts, etc; etc–Each of these experiences will forever be remembered. Our visit is quickly coming to an end, so I am cherishing every moment with them.
I talk about my cousins all the time and I probably won’t ever stop. As a child, I felt the unfairness of being separated by a few states. But now with all our traveling that we love to do, I am blessed to see them several times a year. One of my favorite things about my cousins is that I can be truly, honestly myself. And they inspire me. Their sincere love for God and devotion to following Him is something I admire in them. It’s amazing to have cousins who I can grow in my faith with.
I love seeing other people’s styles–especially my cousins. I am spoiled that we can all share clothes. In these photos, Jenna is actually borrowing one of my favorite dresses. After getting all dressed up we had fun shopping and eating a “fancy” dinner. When I’m with my cousins we relish in dressing up and doing our makeup. We don’t even have to have a good reason. Oh, we’re out of groceries? We’ll wear these nice dresses to Kroger. Did you say you wanted to go to the park? Let’s get dressed up so we can go. Maybe it’s because we’re girls but we just enjoy picking out outfits and wearing them around. So when we got dressed up for this fun girl’s night out, I had to get a few pictures. Photos are basically memories, and I’m glad we had the chance to get these.
P.s. Aren’t my cousins total babes? They should seriously be models.
