So this gorgeous, funny and oh so witty girl…is my niece. Just so happens that she lives in AZ. She came out to visit a few weeks ago with my sister Kate and my nephew Rylan. I can’t believe how fast time goes by. Literally feel it blinked by…I walked Josie to Kindergarten. I went to her ballerina recitals, danced like a crazy Aunt (um, I still do) and soccer games began to slowly replace dance…and I watched an amazing athlete develop. The character and strength she has shown her team as captain…starting varsity for four years straight…simply an amazing accomplishment. Perseverance is really something that I would say is one of the most beautiful traits in people…and I see it in Josie completely. Its so easy to quit…its hard to stay at something.
Josie can also pretty much make me laugh anytime. Sarcastic…I think its pretty safe to say our family has it in spades. Anyway, I could not resist photographing her…simply a stunning person…and I just have to say that it has a lot to do with her being my favorite oldest niece. ;p Love ya Josie…visit often. You are SO missed!!
