Month: June 2012



Zach turns seven today and for some reason I am a mopey mess of emotions about it. My BABY is SEVEN! I’m blaming this crazy emotional state of mine on the residual hormone changes from birthing my last baby (who is already 4 months old!) and the fact that said baby is practically a little mini-me of Zach. The personalities are different, but my two boys look so very much alike that it is hard to look at Caleb and not think about sitting and holding Zach as an infant. Looking at the two of them just reinforces how quickly it all goes by. He may be turning seven today, but I’m pretty sure when I blink my eyes he’ll be 18 and moving away from home. Although, he has assured me that when he moves out he’ll just buy the house next to mine or maybe across the street so he can still come visit a lot. I suppose I can live with that.


Since his party isn’t until Saturday and Daddy won’t be home tonight, we decided to celebrate a little bit last night. We took him out for the dinner of his choice (which ended up being McDonald’s), had ice cream for dessert, and then let him open his birthday gifts from the family.



I’d say he is pretty happy with his gifts. He would have been even happier if I would have let him stay up all night and finish building his new Legos, but even 7-year-olds need their sleep.

10 Years

Just a little over 11 years ago, I bumped into a manĀ  on a dance floor. We danced and talked the rest of the night.

10 years ago today I married that man.


He has given me the three most precious gifts I could ever receive.

My babies

Sometimes I wonder how we have made it this long, but then I realize I can’t imagine my life without him. That’s really all I need to know.

For our 10 year anniversary, I wanted to plan a weekend getaway. We never had a honeymoon and I can’t remember the last time we spent a weekend without kids. I started saving a little here and there when I could, but God had a little surprise for us. Instead of a trip we had a baby. With him, our family feels so complete. Who knows? Maybe we’ll take that trip for our 15th or 20th anniversary. Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to spend our anniversary than with this amazing little family that we have created.

Happy Anniversary, honey. Thank you for an amazing 10 years. I love you.
