that’s what I did yesterday. Ok, I’m still doing it a little bit today too. I am exhausted. I am on the mend though. I tend to not leave myself any time or room for "coming down" after busy, exciting, momentous occasions and last week was several of those back to back. I love my life, but it plays out at a frenetic pace and there are days that I just hit the wall and yesterday was one of those days!! We all have them and I think the sooner you just recognize a crash for what it is, the sooner you can recover and get back at it — today, I’m back at it!!!
But really, life is so good. Saturday was an amazing day, we got to take sweet Addie to the temple and have her sealed to our family. A sealing is the spiritual equivalent of what happened at the courthouse a month or so ago. Addie’s adoption has been recorded and recognized by our state and country and it has now also been recorded in heaven and she is recognized as an eternal member of the Julian family.
these were my favorite pics!! My sweet friend Heidi made her a long white dress and she looked like an angel — the whole adoption thing is truly a miracle. I look at this baby now and just see my daughter and there is a whole new tender side to my boys and it’s such a peaceful, happy feeling.
