25. Hopes and Dreams
I hope and pray that my dear friend, Sherry, can find some
peace this year.  Sadly, we buried her 7-year old son,
Jackson, in August...after a year-long battle with a brain tumor.
Sherry is one of the funniest, most generous people I know,
and I miss her soooo very much.

We will never forget Jackson.  Ever.







And, I'm entering #9 into The Paper Mama "sparkly" challenge.

Dina, your pictures were awesome! Each one I got to I would think, "gosh, thats my favorite..." or I would smile, or just sit and stare at how cute your boys are. Looks like you had a great 2010...I also am so sorry to hear about your friend and her son Jackson. My thoughts are with her in this recovering time.
I look forward to getting to know you and your sweet family even more in 2011!

What a beautiful year in pictures. I love your photography...but you already knew that. Your boys are so gorgeous with their big brown eyes. Love that picture of you too. Beautiful!
Hope you have a blessed new year.

Love your recap and all of the photos. They are all stunning and each tell such a fabulous story of the past year.

My heart hurts for your friend Sherry and the loss of her precious son, Jackson. I hope this new year she can find a few smiles and more happy moments than she can count.....I know there is never closure. Bless her!
