crazy family (the good kind)

so, i just got an email update from my cousin christie who is volunteering in miami for a christian outreach program. since volunteering full time isn't enough for my little driven one, she has decided work on two huge projects. 1 - she wants to start a music magazine devoted to christian music. i'll be posting a weblink when she gets it going. 2 - she's starting a book about her volunteer experiences. she's only 22! my little cousin is growing up and it's kind of scary. i am so very proud of her! but, i still remember (and have photographic evidence) of her running around with a bucket on her head at age 2. even though we spent many years not being very close, i still feel like a proud mama when i think about what she's accomplished so far and what she's going to do in just a few short years.
