  40. I’m BEAMING! I love what you’re doing with this, Lindsay! Please keep them coming. The relationships and emotions portrayed in each and every one of these photos was so touching. <3

    I'm sorry I've been MIA the past few weeks…I need to catch up on your life! Has Texas welcomed you back with open arms? Is there any part of you that misses NZ? At least the Vegemite? 😉 Hugs! xoxo

    • to be honest, i want to go back. Well i love it hear but i need to focus on slowing down still. I get caught up too fast with things. I am so thankful for your ongoing encouragement. How are YOU?!

      • I hear you on needing to slow down; that’s how I feel about living in Washington, DC. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “rat race,” and I find myself pouring energy into finding time to decompress. So slowing down becomes exhausting in itself. Does that make sense? It’s a constant challenge to stay “balanced,” when everything is moving 100-miles/minute! I find that I take better care of myself when I’m outside of this environment, which sounds a bit like how you felt living in NZ. How about we move to some relaxing tropical island and drink kombucha together every day? 😉 <3

  41. I missed my chance to send in some genuine photos of CRAZINESS with boys. These are all SO good though, Lindsay. What a heartwarming project!

  42. Phenomenal, girl!

  43. it should be carried on weekend!
