more family love

Let me introduce you to another awesome family...Jaime, Robbie and Gideon. When I tell you the bond among them was so obvious, there was such a pure, endearing love that came through naturally with no direction from me! Jaime suffers with fibromyalgia, a condition that can be debilitating and elusive. I know first hand, my mom also suffered with fibro for 15 years. And the irony is that now I'm married to this amazing doc who treats fibro with great success, but my mom never got to even meet him. But I digress.

So, I have a soft spot in my heart for Jaime and her family. Robbie is a green builder, a great one from what I hear, and I'm sure I don't have to even explain about job security for builders in this market. But what their friend who nominated them couldn't express enough, was the love and compassion they have for others. It was such a pleasure to meet them! Hope you enjoy getting a peek at them too. And can you tell it took a few minutes for Gideon to warm up to me...but I think I won him over! : )

Gorgeous! As the mama who nominated them, I have to say you really captured the beauty & character of my dear friends. I especially loved the first one with Jaime and Gideon and the last one with all three together.
