If you live in Charlotte and have been in town this summer, you know what I mean when I say H-E-A-T wave. It has been so, incredibly hot outside. This family amazed me by running, jumping, skipping, climbing and hugging — while at the same time smiling during our hot-hot-hot session on Sunday night. We laughed at how much heat was radiating off of the bricks that night and the kids were thankful for frequent water breaks. Amanda brought sunflowers from her garden that were oh-so beautiful — just like this family. The type of beauty that draws your attention and makes you smile. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.
