Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Our first married project!

We decided the the pups needed a beautiful home too so after much planning (on Zach's part) the house was underway. Zach built the entire thing by hand with his cool new power tools....then I got to add the artsy element by doing a faux brick exterior. We really hope Sydney and Emma will love chillin in their new crib especially on those rainy days. Although during the summer months they are very spoiled and spend most of the day inside with pops!

The great month of May

May brought so much excitement. Not only was Zach finished with law school but we were also looking forward and making final plans for the big wedding weekend. Somehow, in between all of the big events, we still managed to squeeze in an awesome trip to Las Vegas, a couples shower, and my 26th birthday party! May was a great month and one I know I will never forget!
