I'm the girl that every one knows as an all-time family girl. I'm a daddy's girl, my mom is my best friend, and I love my siblings to death. I was the one who would rather spend time with my family than anything else. 
That being said, my favorite kind of day now is: Husband+Family! What can be better than that?! The truth about that statement is that we don't get that opportunity very often, which saddens me greatly. Scott gets a long with my family so well, and my family loves him dearly. I was planning a trip home this month [along with my trip in December] but decided to just have one trip. Ugh. So instead of spending time with them, I am choosing to write about my awesome family... starting with my Daddy!

This picture was taken right before our Daddy-Daughter dance.
 The dance that I had been dreaming about ever since I was a little girl when I knew I wanted to marry a man just like my Daddy. {And I definitely would say my prince charming fits the mold!} We danced to "I Loved Her First", a song I picked years ago just for this exact moment. 
I truly am a daddy's girl. I love hearing about his work, learning survival techniques, taking long hikes and four-wheeler rides, everything he has to offer. He is such a godly man, a hard worker, and someone everyone can go to. Plus gives the best hugs... and bedtime stories. Definitely the best bedtime stories.

My mummy dearest! Ever since I lived in Australia, I have called her Mummy. 
Right before the reveal Scott and I did right before the wedding, being in my mom's arms was where I wanted to be. She was so breath-taking beautiful and was so happy for me. 
My parents made sure I got the wedding of my dreams, both helping me with their own ideas and suggestions. 
My mom is definitely my best friend, we talk at least twice a day. She has taught me so much in life and the real meaning of love. I love being able to call her up and hear her tell me everything is going to be okay. It is so hard not being able to just get in my car and be with her. We have the best girl's nights!! 
AND... she comes to visit in October!! :D

My brother. 
This moment is such a precious moment to me, the dance between my brother and I. As emotional as this next step in my life was already, we didn't know this was the last time we'd be together before I left for North Carolina. He was away working out of town when Scott and I got back from our honeymoon and we had to leave without our goodbyes. But this, this dance was our precious goodbye.
My brother and I grew up best friends, always outside playing. Cowboys and Indians, building forts, 4-wheeling, car washes, climbing trees, linking logs, everything. There was never a dull moment in our childhood. Being away from my brother is super hard, but it makes seeing him sweeter. I love being the one he goes to about girls and life, I love being that to and for him. I love that our last adventure before leaving was me holding onto the back of him on the Blaster at night, both of us laughing uncontrollably! Priceless.

My sissy! 
My sister was my maid of honor. She's just so darn cute! I love being her older sister, the one she goes to. The one to teach her the little things. To have a million sleepovers, sharing stories and secrets till the odd hours in the night. She is so smart and talented. 

She spent the last couple of spring breaks with me at college and I can't wait 
until she can come spend them and summers with me all over the world! 
I can't wait to give her that taste of travel and new experiences
She is coming with my mom and my little cousin in October to North Carolina and I am so excited to show her around and give her a huge squeeze!! 

Phew, that definitely helped with my homesickness for my family. Thanks for letting me tell you all 
about my loving family!
