Meet the ridiculously beautiful R. family…
They also happen to be a family that I love so much! I first met them soon after we moved to the Edmonton area. They had also recently moved from B.C. and not long after we met, Tawny approached me to take their family photos. Click HERE to peek back to 2008. It’s funny looking back to that blog post, because I clearly remember that while I was taking those photos, I wished I knew this family better. They had this amazing connection within their family that was full of warmth, acceptance, love, and fun. Little did I know then, that years later Tawny would make a profound and amazing impact on my life.
I consider myself very blessed to count her as a close friend who knows me better than
I know myself. She supports, loves, and gives with a generous heart, and she has this uncanny way of knowing exactly what to say at the exact moment I need to hear it. I’m so thankful that our roads to a new place met…even if embracing the snow in Alberta is tough (although snow seems to show up in symbolic ways). She has a selfless and beautiful Spirit: http://christinehopaluk.com/blog/2010/01/17/tawnys-spirit/
If you have the pleasure of spending any amount of time with this fun family, count yourself lucky! They always give more than they take (and they rarely take). They are the gatherers of friends for special occasions, opening their home with an endless supply of love, acceptance, and a whole lot of laughter.
Simply put: They. Are. Amazing.
Jay has a huge heart, and he’s growing his Moustache out for Movember in support of Men’s health. http://ca.movember.com/mospace/990704
This photo seems only fitting! Happy Movember 🙂
Now, I have to end by saying that even though I love them to death, there is one ‘lil annoying, competitive, and at times aggressive part of our friendship. This Oiler Girl has to put up with this during Hockey Season….
Thank you for meeting me for photos! Love you!
