  1. I love hearing about your family of friends, Annie, every single time you share. And I’m joining them in praying and pushing for you right now. Sending a huge across the Atlantic (and, you know, half of our country and probably some of yours).

  2. Annie,

    I pray you enjoy Scotland – actually enjoy every moment of every day God has given you! It is to be treasured and held tight.

    Keep those picture memories – they last a lifetime!

  3. Ooooooooooooohhhhhh…….. I am SOOOOOO jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I was born in Scotland (in Edinburgh, though I’ve never been back there), and though my family moved to South America when I was 5, I LOVE it. It is such a beautiful, gorgeous, slow-paced country. It’s in my bones.
    Enjoy it.

  4. Annie,
    I have a group of girlfriends I get together with every year… I have so many great memories. It is fun to share life like that! Your photo reminded me of them. πŸ™‚

  5. “The snapshot of lives well lived.”… I love that Annie. Beautiful captured! I hope you are having a wonderful time in Scotland!

  6. Prayers for your heart, Annie! My Mamma always says “Your future is as bright as the promises of God.” Claim it, girl. πŸ™‚


  7. I used to think I dind’t NEED close girlfriends.
    They are hard to make when you’re an adult – a mom.
    I now have a great group of Christian women that I call my best friends.
    They push me to be better, hold me accountable, and laugh and cry with me nearly daily.
    I wouldn’t want to be without them.
    I’m glad you have a group of amazing ladies too!
