This is my sister Jessa and her husband Erik! I have much that I could say about these two but let me break it down for you with some highlights.

1. She is one of the most creative people I know!
2. She is hilarious
3. She cares deeply for others
4. She puts others before herself
5. She is down right amazing


1. He is passionate
2. He is enthusiastic
3. He is a hard worker
4. He knows how to make you laugh
5. He has more heart then anyone else I know

These qualities/characteristics only scratch the surface of this amazing couple!! I can't even begin to tell you how much I learn, grow, change, laugh, cry, desire and am challenged by Erik and Jessa. 
So why am I telling you all of this? Because these two are about the embark on a life changing journey of their own...One that will be filled with many ups, downs, tears, laughter, joy, and pain. This is one of my ways of supporting them and spreading the word about their journey!!

The big 1

I know! Its been forever since I have posted ANYTHING! But what better way to start off the new year then by sharing a few photos from Taft's first birthday! I can hardly believe my little boy is 1 year old. This past year has been such a blessing, struggle, filled with new discoveries, growing, learning experience as I figure out what it means to be a mom. I love you Taft William Ericksen!! You have already taught me so much!

"Happy Birthday to you!" We had to blow out the candle fast because he wanted to touch the flame...such a boy!

Such a careful eater...didn't smash it just took little bites.

Delicious cake made by Grammy! He loved it.

Taft learned "SO BIG" at Christmas time. 

Birthday boy! 

Taft and Uncle Zach share the same special day so Zach came over to celebrate : )
