all 3 are fabulous mothers.
have all been through some pretty incredible challenges in their lives.

my friends are pretty amazing.
they all inspire me in different ways

to find your artistic side.
when you want something, go for it. no regrets.
and just to enjoy life in general.
she's amazing.

mekelle, another cousin, is one of the kindest girls i know.
she will help you with anything.
she took care of me in college, i'll tell ya that.
she is so loving.
and patient.
and is going to be a fabulous mom because of it.

 10. my Savior, and Heavenly Father

without my faith in Jesus Christ and the knowledge that i am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, i wouldn't be who i am today.

i am constantly inspired and influenced by their words in the scriptures, and their leaders in the church.

truly they are the most influential of them all.
