Today marks the three year anniversary of my father's passing. It's true what they say, it does get easier with time. Unfortunately, the more time that passes, the more I forget details. The sound of his voice, his laugh, the smell of his cologne. It takes me a little longer to recall these things. I'm thankful for the videos and pictures I have of him. I only wish now that I had more. I cherish these pictures; it's really all I have left. October will always remind me of him. Sadly, one of the things I love most about fall, the colors of the leaves as they change, remind me of driving to Indiana for his funeral. I remember admiring the beautiful reds and oranges as we drove to the funeral home that day to say goodbye to him for the last time. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful. I am reminded of him everyday in myself. I am so much like him, especially the older I get. I see him in the mirror, in my smile, my eyes. My mannerisms and sense of humor, definitely. And it makes so proud. And sad at the same time. Because I know he would be happy that I am my father's daughter.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
