February 10, 2012
It used to feel like I was always trying to catch up on everything…emails, photos, projects, etc. Lately I’ve been trying not to stress about it and just enjoy the moment. Hope you’ve all been doing great and appreciating the beauty of little moments too!
My iPhone broke and I lost a lot of data. Nothing past October 2011 was saved. When I look at my phone it’s weird…all the settings and everything are as if it were still October. I lost so much that I can never get back. I’m probably the only person in the Apple world who didn’t know that syncing and backing up are two completely different things! If I think about it too much I want to cry so I just have to move on!
So I have a new internet love and its name is Instagram~ a photo editing & social network app for the iPhone. I love it so much! Until my friend Linnet found me on Instagram I had been using it for months without knowing it was a social network too~ lol! You can find me under skippee.
Here are some of my recent favorites~
For Joy’s Room
I recently ordered some photo projects through Shutterfly. I’ll share them with you once I get them! Here’s one I made to put up in Joy’s room.
There are moments in your life that just change you forever. When I was younger I said good-bye to my best friend on life support and later saw her mom bury her only child. Just recently a dear friend passed away and I watched as a young boy cried for his mom. Heartbreaking and impossible to wrap your mind around events like that. It does give me a bigger appreciation for life though. It makes me want to hold my loved ones even closer and say prayers of thankfulness.
B touched the lives of so many people~ through her kindness, courageous battle with cancer, recipes and photography. She will most be remembered for her profound love of her baby boy. Helen is making a scrapbook for J so I wanted to include a letter for him to remember his extraordinary mom.
I just want you to know what an amazing person your mom is. She touched so many people’s lives with her big heart, bravery, photography talent, cooking skills and her unconditional love for you. Just remember that she is always with you…in your heart, in all the happy moments and sad ones too, when the sun shines brightly, when you pray, when you’re feeling scared or lonely…she will always be there. She is going to be so proud of the incredible boy, man, husband and father you will be one day. Always know that there are so many people who love you so much. We will always pray for you and wish you the best. Here’s a quote from your mom that I will always hold close to my heart:
“Cherish each and every moment and live your life like there’s no tomorrow.”
Love, Jenny Eemo
To Hold My Grandma’s Hand
Although I never imagined I would take a trip internationally with a baby, B has inspired me to live my life to the fullest and not to have any regrets. We are headed to Korea to see my grandparents and attend a wedding. I know it’ll be hard but totally worth it to hold my grandma’s hand. Luckily Evan gets to stay with his favorite people (his grandparents!) so we don’t have to worry about him at all. However, I really need your help because I’m so nervous about the trip with Joy. Any tips on how to take a 6 month old on a 12-13 hour flight? Also, Korea will still be really cold when we go. How do I go from a warm suburb to a chilly metropolitan city?! Thanks in advance!
