OH my goodness, best concert ever. Ok, the concert wasn't the best, the two opening acts were kind of bad. Yet, when Kenny came out it made it all worth while! He sang all my favorites, I really almost cried I was so excited. The best part of course was dancing with my sweetheart the whole night! Fast on fast songs and sloooow on slow songs. I absolutely loved it!
The first pic is them setting up the stage for Kenny, the second is *gasp* KENNY singing, and I'll let you figure out the last one!

Is it sad that I'm obsessed with the fleur de lis? I'm pretty much just obsessed with all things France, which is sad because I have never been! Unless you count the 3 x 3 miles in Saint Marten that France owns. I just love it all. I can't wait to go someday, it is a major goal in life! I'm even excited about re-taking french in the fall, I haven't taken in since my sophmore year in high school. Next time I have some spare change I want to get a necklace like these ones I found on etsy. And you better believe there will be some french decor in my future home. Oh, l'amour!

Since Andrew left on his mission to Arcadia, California! Friday, July 10th was his 2 year anniversary from being home! Those were probably the longest two years of my life. Every time at work Friday I wrote "July 10" I kept thinking, "that's when Andrew got home!!!" That was one of the best days of my life! Here are some pictures, the first is at the airport when he was leaving to go to the MTC.......and the rest you can assume are when he was a missionary! He is the best husband, and I know it is partly because of the wonderful experiences he had in the field. He is so so so spiritual it puts me to shame, but he makes me a better person. Who knew two years ago when he got back from his mission that he'd be in the bishopric today? Crazy crazy life!

Charles Howard Richards
Since his birth there have been three more, my grandfather, my dad, and my brother. He is a family legacy. He was visiting my family this week, and I got a strong impression so ask Nicole to take some shots of him so we can have some beautiful portraits to remember him by. He had a close call last year, and I just don't know how much longer he'll be here. I'm hoping he can last a few more years so he can hold his first great-great-grand child, but we'll just have to see.
Of the shots I've seen so far, this is my favorite. I have to admit I'm a sucker for details, but this one just speaks to me.
His hands. Just think about the the almost 100 years he's been alive, and all those hands have been through. Those hands served our country in World War 2, they held the love of his life my great grandmother MaryBeth's hands, they held my dad's hand as he was a child, and so much more.
Even though he was sad he wasn't able to witness Andrew and I being sealed, he supported our decision and was there to hold my hand that day as well. He is an amazing man, with so much life experience. He'll always be remembered as singing, "A pretty girl is like a melody" and "Little boy with a baseball bat" and we don't know the rest of either of those songs. The baseball caps he loves to wear, his wedding band he won't remove even after his love passed over 10 years ago, and his Navy tattoo that he regrets getting now almost 80 years later. We'll all also remember his fear of Mexico, but that's a long story.
We all love you Papa! Thank you for being such an amazing man.
