We hope you’re enjoying the historic view wherever in the world you may be. Here’s the view looking out my (Cristi’s) office window. Happy super moon night, everybody!
“For your moon is my moon
and my moon is your moon”

Mackenzi’s beYOUtiful statement was a favorite for many people: “I am beautiful because I snort when I laugh.” Jessi and I are bummed that we didn’t get a shot of Mackenzi holding her statement at her shoot. With my “foot catastrophe” (I just nicknamed it that. Do you like it?) going on and not being able to make it to the recent photo shoots, Jessi has been on her own. And I have all the supplies for the beYOUtiful statements here at my house and so yeah … that little detail somehow managed to fall through the cracks. So … BUMMER! DANGIT! SHOOT A MILE!! (My high school English teacher used to say that. Isn’t it fantastic? Shout out to Mrs. Ainsley right there. Shoot a mile!) It would have been so fun to get a picture of Kenzi holding her super fun “snort when I laugh” poster. But … can you just imagine it? Come on, you guys. I know you’re creative!
Jessi said that Mackenzi was someone that was really easy to get along with and that she felt “comfy around her from the start.” Kenzi’s best friend Stacey came along with her and Jessi asked Stacey if she wanted to say a few words about Mackenzi. Here’s what Stacey said:
“Kenzi is my lifesaver. She’s my laughing, crying, giggle-snorting bestie. I feel like she’s been around forever, even though it’s only been a handful of years. We take care of each other. We keep each other sane. I hope she knows how amazingly beautiful and amazing she is, inside and out. I love her dearly, and would be lost without her there. I hope she knows that. Love you, Kenzie!!”
I actually really wish that I could have BEEN at the shoot to actually HEAR Mackenzi’s laugh and to hear the aforementioned snort. Doesn’t she look like she has a FANTASTIC laugh?! I can just picture her laughing … and snorting. (And I have a secret, Mackenzi. I snort when I laugh, too. Just don’t tell anyone, okay?!)
