The Hebert Wedding 11.11.11

 Have you ever heard the saying "Dreams really do come true!"? Well, our dreams really have come true! After meeting 11 yrs ago in Philosophy class, we have fallen in love over and over again. David is my best friend, and together we have been through so much. We couldn't even begin to imagine what life would be like without one another! Now, David and I are going to be spending the rest of our lives together! We are so excited to share this amazing chapter in our lives with you. Our wedding day, 11.11.11, was an amazing day, and we are looking forward to many happy years to come! We are very grateful for all of you who were able to share our special day with us!

Why I'm Keeping Kakky

This beautiful little girl is my niece, Alex. 
She is the reason that I'm keeping Kakky. 
7 years ago today, this sweet girl came into my life, 
and my life just hasn't been the same since. 

When Alex was born I didn't want to be called "Aunt Kirstin" or just "Kirstin", so I chose the name Kakky. I chose this because my initials are KAK, and I thought it was something unusual and special for her to call me. I wanted to be more than just an aunt to her, 
I wanted to be someone she could rely on, trust, and look up to. 
That kind of special person in a girl's life requires a special name! ; )

On 11.11.11 I married the love of my life, and now my last name has changed. My initials are no longer KAK. Having a new last name sometimes makes me feel a little bit like a new and different person, but to Alex, I will always be her Kakky. 

Even though I have a new last name, I'm keeping Kakky! I love you Alex, and I hope that one day you will appreciate reading my blogs.
