This week is all about Gratitude. A break from normal blogging to share with you some of the things I’m grateful for as this holiday approaches.

Today I’m grateful for watching families evolve. One of the best parts of my job is getting to know people and seeing their families grow and change. I see them as they get engaged, then get married, then have babies, and then as their babies grow. Sometimes I literally lose my breath when I see these gorgeous children and the beautiful, charming, interesting people they’re turning into.

The best example of that is the Vo family. Today I’m going to show you an image from the very first time we met, in January 2006…

And here they are earlier this year. Five years, Three weddings, and 6 children later. (although there are only 5 1/2 children at the time of this photo). I have so much gratitude for being able to watch this family grow, and especially to call them friends.

Love you guys!
