Love...

(Summer 2010 Hayley tired after a day at the Calgary Zoo)

My little old lap top is about one day from dying on me. I have had it since before I started college yikes!
Thankfully when I need to do something super duper important Trevor lets me use his nice Mac.
Anyways, I have been going through my computer and trying make some more space and room by organizing my photos and putting them on an external hard drive.
(so one day I don't loose all my memories captured in beautiful pictures!)
I came across this while going through my pictures.
Gosh I love this picture.
More then that I love being an aunt.
I told my dad once that, I don't think I could ever have my own children now.
I mean... if I love my nieces and nephews THIS much...
what would it possibly feel like to love my own child?
The thought and all that comes with it, seriously scares me.

  1. this was a perfect post for sunday reflection!

    my laptop i had for 5 years (all of college) died, so now I steal JJ's mac and keep it with me. I feel slightlyyy evil about it.

    my three nieces are the cutest, most amazing little girls i've ever seen. i loove being an aunt to them, too.

  2. What a sweet photo. I'm not an aunt, and I don't have my own children yet, but I can't even begin to imagine the love that I will feel for them!

    Have a great Sunday!

  7. If I were never to have children of my own I would be okay because I have my nieces and nephews and I love them that much too.

  9. Oh it's so true. Having your own children really is a bursting experience. I just can't think of a better word than burst because there really isn't one. The love I feel for my sweet Lovies is devastating in the best ways.

  10. Seeing how much my sister loves and adores my girls makes me think that the feelings are pretty similar. Your nieces and nephews are lucky to have such a loving auntie!

  12. I love that picture of both of you! You will be a great Mom some day :) I'm glad you are backing up all your pictures and anything important. It would be devastating to lose them all. Love you!!

  13. You don't even know how much more you will love your own children. Its surreal. You won't even believe it if I tell you because its so different. Like nieces and nephews, times a million.

  14. (my college laptop just gave up the ghost this week!!) I love this post. One of my sister's had a baby in February. I don't see them very often, but this post makes me want to find more opportunities to squeeze him. :)

  19. I know just how you feel! There was definitely a time when I thought I'd never have kids and now I yearn for them. It's so crazy how life happens that way, ya know?

    That photo is adorable, btw :)

  20. I am seriously enamored with your little sentiment here. That is so sweet and kind hearted. I don't have nieces or nephews yet, but I fall in love hard with children so I can't imagine what that love will bring or love for my own children to boot. Adorable picture, adorable post!
