Day 15: a photo of you and a family member

Yay! I couldn’t pick just one person, so I decided to post one of me, my sisters, and most of our girl cousins on my Dad’s side of the fam (missing 2 that live in Alaska). We all grew up super close and the best of friends – I hope that my children grow up close to their cousins someday as well!

Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

Hmm…I’m honestly feeling like this is a bunk question (yep, I just said bunk) because in all reality, we’re human. We’re adaptable. we’re resilient. We can’t control everything life throws at us, hence we have to figure out a way to live without something/someone when necessary. 

Of course I don’t want to have to live without my husband. 
I don’t want to live in a tiny town without getting out and traveling (I’ve gone abroad somewhere every other year since 2000 and I hope to continue that trend forever!). 
I don’t want to have to live life without a child. 
I don’t want to live this far away from my family forever. 

But could I if I have to? If that’s the way life works out? Of course I could. Because that’s life.


  1. Yeah I definitely think that last question is bunk…hahaha bunk. Because I agree, you could live without pretty much everything except food and water. But I definitely think it meant if you could choose one thing not to live without. And I hope you get/maintain all those things you listed.

  2. Bringing back "bunk" huh. I like it. 🙂 You are so photogenic. I'm super jealous of that!

  3. Props to the cousin in the Stolaf football sweatshirt!

  4. Cousins are the best! Love them.And I agree with you. You just posted it first. Now I get to figure out how to write my Day 15. Punk.

  5. So true–this is like asking what we really need. We think we need way more than we really do, and life often teaches us what we really need (which is very little). Wise people learn this before they're tested, but most of us don't really learn it until something we thought we needed is taken away.

  6. My all look so similar! Awesome pic
