The world is a better place because of it.
I love her energetic spirit.
Trekking in Patagonia with a bad knee, 2008. It got replaced less than a year later and she is still going.
She never stops doing what she loves...
Rock Climbing in the Tetons, 2010. Mom and Dad spent much of their dating days climbing in the Tetons. Dad says that Mom was beautiful to watch climbing because she made it look like a dance.
...and now she brings the family along!
She loves Dad and together they are a great team. They have been my greatest examples of how to create a happy marriage and life together. What a blessing they are to me!
She serves and serves and serves those around her. When Charlie was born early she got another plane ticket and stayed through the NICU stay and for weeks afterward. She got up with him at night, hauled our laundry through the snow to wash it at the laundromat, cooked, and cleaned. Most importantly she helped me adjust to this new life of being a mother and gave me hugs when I needed them.
