Natalie's Moving : (

I admit this has been a tough few weeks for me. I found out that my dear friend and neighbor, Natalie Graham, is moving to New Brunswick, Canada. This possible move has been pending for several weeks and I've been on pins and needles wondering if this is really going to happen. Well, it is and I'm sad. Of course I am excited for their new opportunity, but I am really going to miss having her and her sweet family so close. Ashlyn wakes up every morning asking to play with Abby. Katelyn and Hayden think they're cousins. And, frankly, I'm not sure what I'll do without my shopping, photography, sewing, do everything, & Diet Coke buddy. It's so unreal to me that they will be moved out of their house in 2 weeks. The way things have fallen into place for them is a sign to me that the Lord needs them in Canada right now. 

This past weekend Natalie and I went to Panguich Lake to meet Pam and her scrapbooking friends for a fun girls retreat at Becky's beautiful new cabin. We had a great time (well, I could have done without the 24 hour flu while we were there). We took this photo on the deck of the cabin. I'll miss you Nat. But, the good news is - you'll be moving back in 3 years.

Gosh, this sounds like a chapter out of your life in 1988. Reading your post made me think of when I found out that I was moving. It makes me sad.

I've been thinking about getting you out here in the fall to take pictures of our family. I thought that (depending on plane costs) we could fly you out as your compensation. Thoughts?
