Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Reflecting...

...on the blessings and joys of 2011 and thanking God for His daily faithfulness!  Yes, He has been so faithful, even when I wasn't, what amazing Love!  We celebrated Rachel's high school graduation, Hannah's basketball team's district championship, three generations travelled to the Holy Land together, and tearfully said our goodbyes as we took Rachel to her first semester of college.

I've learned once again that God is more than enough....more than enough to hold us all in the very palm of His hands, even when we are not living under the same roof.  But, I am so thankful that she is home for Christmas break!  I sleep so much better when everyone is home.

Hannah started her freshman year in high school....two freshman daughters-one in college, and one in high school.  Be still my heart!  Mr. Incredible and I celebrated 21 years of marriage.  I have now officially been married half my life.  Wow! 

I learned what it means to say goodbye to my last living grandparent on earth this summer.  I just know Grandmother has had the sweetest heavenly reunion with my grandpa and thought about the Christmas celebration she is having this year.

I learned what it means to trust God once again, even when things are not going according to my plans and to trust Him even when it hurts so much that you can hardly breathe!  He is faithful...even in spite of me. 

I could go on and on about the many lessons and blessings learned and gained this year.  I'm thankful that God still has work for me to do here and for the greatest joy in being a wife and momma. 

I'm thankful for my high school students and parents and the teachers and staff that I am blessed to work with. 

And I am thankful for my photography business and clients and the joy this adventure with the Lord brings.  It is still amazing to me that so many precious clients choose me to capture their memories.  I don't take this blessing for granted.  There are many photographers to choose from these days and I feel so honored when they choose me.  I absolutely fall in love with all of my clients.  It is a joy to capture their love for each other...from the newest, fresh from Heaven babies to the couples who are still so deeply in love after so many years together~thank you from my heart! 

May each one you have a blessed new year!
