Heidi and Wes
(FYI: I previously claimed in this post about self-image that Heidi is the most beautiful person I have ever seen and that Angelina Jolie has nothing on her. Wouldn't you agree?)
Sommer and our hero Owen
Megan and Case, who both lost their lives in the tornado of May 20, 2013. The peace and love on her face is rivaled only by that on his. This picture still makes me cry.
Kristen and precious Aiden
Angie meeting Jelina, her "sweet petite," for the first time
Tabitha in her usual outdoorsy-exploratory-mode with boys Caedmon and Noah
Lindsey and Jameson--pure love. =)
Heidi and Max- a joyous moment!
Chanda meeting her daughter Dacie
Laurie in action with son Miles, dressed as a lamb for Halloween. I don't consider my friend Laurie to be much of an emotionally-mushy person, and I believe that this picture perfectly illustrates her motherly love in action.
Melissa snuggling with baby Ruby
Mandy hugging her son Will. Her smile is among the loveliest I have ever encountered in person.
Cyndi and her long-awaited beauty Sera
