eyre girls...



...love and adore coming from four different states for a weekend together. 

...can throw down and eat about their body weight in deliciousness at a nice hotel breakfast buffet....can engage in active, excited, deep conversation for hours by a pool....tend to go against the grain and appreciate challenges in many things, like walking/swimming against the current in a resort "lazy river"....are nature freaks that can't get over beautiful vistas, unique vegetations, or especially vibrant sunsets.


...absolutely relish delicious food, and usually end up talking about how good the food is for half of any meal conversation.
...lose their phones and keys multiple times a day.
...support each other through any brand of heartache.


...worship together and study god's will and god's love together, seeking to support each other in questions, doubts, and understanding.

...love and adore daughters and nieces and want to instill in these precious girls' hearts a strong belief in the power of womanhood. 

...are night owls that stay up late talking, laughing, and eating cookie dough from the mixer. 

...tear up when touched by art or words or music that is miraculous and/or gorgeous and rings with truth and beauty, like this quote:
when god wants an important thing done in this world or a wrong righted, he goes about it in a very singular way. he doesn't release thunderbolts or stir up earthquakes. god simply has a tiny baby born, perhaps of a very humble home, perhaps of a very humble mother. and god puts the idea or purpose into the mother's heart. and she puts it in the baby's mind, and then-god waits. the great events of this world are not battles and elections and earthquakes and thunderbolts. the great events are babies, for each child comes with the message that god is not yet discouraged with humanity but is still expecting good-will to become incarnate in each human life. {edmond mcdonald}

...feel tremendously blessed and privileged and grateful in so, so many ways, and especially to have each other.

  2. You forgot "can make sneakers and skirts look cute together, while hiking!" because I certainly wouldn't be able to pull that off. What a special time!

  7. Sisters are the best! Looks like such a fun reunion.
    Your Edmond McDonald quote reminds me of one of my favorites by Elder Maxwell: "When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time. The women of God know this."
