During my freshman year of college, I met an amazing group of people. Seriously. They were genuine. They were caring and loving. They were funny and fun. But most importantly, they shared their love of Christ with me and taught me about how to love. The showed me how it looked to have Christ at the center of life and friendships. And they became absolutely the best friends anyone could ever ask for. They were there for me in my struggles, they celebrated with me in my triumphs, and reminded me to stay centered on Jesus Christ, our common bond and Savior.
One of these friends was a boy named Cooper. I want to tell you about Cooper, but in the famous words of Inigo Montoya, “No, there is too much. Let me sum up.”
Cooper loves people. He listens well and he cares well. He has taught me a lot through the years and I’m so excited for his life and for all the great things in store for him! (He also claims he’s going to run my business someday, so consider this your personal introduction to the future CEO.)
I also had the pleasure of getting to know his brother Mason last year. It was my last year of college; Cooper had graduated the year before and Mason was now a freshman at CNU. We didn’t get to hang out a ton, but let me tell you that I love this kid! (Sorry, he’s not a kid) He’s one of the funniest people I know and saved me from panicking about a computer problem more than once I think. He’s a little shy and quiet when you meet him, but soon you discover what an awesome and super funny person he is.
Whatever Mason is in shyness, Carly is in outgoing. This girl is vivacious and bubbly, and her upbeat attitude is contagious! AND she has just finished her first year of college at CNU! Congrats Carly!
Guys, you all have been such a blessing in my life. I can’t thank you enough for the stands that you’ve made in your life the honor God and to love each other and be a blessing to everyone around you. You laugh a lot and you love even more. I love you guys! I’m thankful to know you, and I look forward to seeing the directions that God takes you. Wherever you go, remember the little people! Especially the ones under five feet.
We went to Historic Occoquan to walk around, and we found this Miller’s Lighthouse! Since that’s their last name, we just had to stop for a picture.
Carly, the colors you picked out for the shoot were awesome! I loved the way everything looked. You did a great job coordinating!
Ok, pause. Can I just tell you how funny these people are? At the suggestion of a model face, Cooper pulls out Blue Steel. I just had to include it…
Cooper, there were girls walking by. They started drooling when they saw you.
Look at beautiful Carly!!
I love Carly’s laugh.
How cute is he?! Love you Mason!
I’ll end on my favorite – this one was actually made into a canvas for their wonderful mom! She’s an incredible lady too, you should know her.
Oh, I guess I should have explained that this amazing trio did this as a Mother’s Day gift for their mom. So I absolutely must say, Happy Mother’s Day Mrs. Miller! You’ve done an incredible job raising three wonderful children who spread joy wherever they go and influence people for Christ! Hope you enjoy these pictures of your precious children!
