Lodi Senior ... in Mt. Shasta for Photos!

It's good news to me when someone comes all the way to lil ole Siskiyou County from Lodi for a shoot. Okay... That's not why she came! But it was a benefit when she came. ;) 
I've known this girl since she was 3.  THREE! I can't even believe it. She is turning 18 soon and growing up to be a really wonderful gem of a person. Like a baby sister I never had, I'm proud to know her and be that "like family" kind of person in her life, and I'm excited for the difference I know she will make in the world. Tali - Be strong. Stand up and lead girlfriend! You've got a beautiful heart, and kind soul, and you've got this! Can't wait to see how God uses you and what your future holds Tali! 

aaaand we kinda had a great time at our shoot ;) It was during this shoot with her I discovered a new favorite location in Mt. Shasta too!  

Now you, dear reader,  have a task - There is something about someone you care about - turning 18 that makes you think back to being 18...  

If you had a chance to go back, and give yourself one piece of advise to yourself at 18... what would it be?

If you're 18 or younger... let me know what is something you've heard as advise that you know will stick with you forever?

Leave your answers in the comments. It'll be good for any seniors scrolling through! <3   Thanks for checking it out - and Enjoy! If you spotted this in your FB news feed, be sure to give it a like and share it with a Senior or a Mom of a Senior :)
