How I met Kati is probably one of my favorite stories. Think back to my freshman year, it was homecoming and I had just purchased my dress for my first high school dance. I was so excited, and then, Friday night before the dance I got a call that my date had decided that he would no longer take me. To this day, I'm not even sure what the reason was. I was really devastated and heartbroken. My dad went to the store to cancel my boutonniere and order me a pick me up bouquet. The florist asked my dad what was going on. She quickly sprang into action and arranged a blind date with a senior at my school. My first date was going to be a blind date with an upper classman. We were going to double date with other upperclassmen. To say I was a wreck of nerves is a complete understatement.
Kati was the other girl that was going. She was nothing but nice, kind, funny and just full of life. She made a girl who was so insecure, pretty terrified and feeling like a true fish out of water, feel good and turned it into a fun night that I would never forget. Kati and I have remained friends throughout the years. Her happiness, giggles, 1,000,000 watt smile and full of life ways have forever changed me.
Kati, Matt, Alaina and Morgan met up with me in Westminster for some fall family photos and some 5 year old photos for Alaina. I absolutely loved her family. These little girls are so full of life. Alaina is a dancer and loves having her photos taken. Morgan is a little spitfire and at 2 years old is full of smiles, life, and some tumbles. I had so much fun meeting them.
For Alaina's 5th birthday, Kati created the amazing chalkboard below highlighting Aliana's current interests and life. These are such a great thing to have done! All these little details, that you swear you are going to remember, and then time and memories slip away. If you would be interested in having them created for your little ones, please contact Kati! I wish I had these done before!!
