In Sickness and in Health

Standard

This weekend I spent most of my time camped out on the couch or asleep in my bed trying to will myself to feel better. I am hoping that the bug that is going around school is not going to hit me too! I was reminded again this weekend that I am blessed to have married my husband, Tim.  He picked up around the house, did ALL the laundry (which is a feat in itself), cooked meals and took care of our girl when I could not.  “Feel better kisses” from my sweet Rachel made my sickness a little more tolerable and it also brings a smile to my face when I think about all the random kisses she gave me throughout the weekend.  It’s amazing how much growth happens in a year and I am loving her sweet and caring personality that is shining through.

Have a great week, everyone!

 

Happy New Year!

Standard

Happy New Year! 2012 was, in many ways, the best year of my life. We spent most of the year getting to know our sweet little babe and growing together as a family.  My daughter and my husband are true blessings to me and I hope they know how much they are loved.  I can not imagine life without them!  I am excited for what the future holds for us and have no doubt that many more great things are in store for our family in 2013.

My New Year’s resolution is to focus on what is important and meaningful.  Life is about loving others and being good to those around you.  Too often we can get bogged down by the small things that, in the grand scheme of life, don’t really matter.  Focus on what matters…family, friends and love. Don’t sweat the small stuff!  🙂

Enjoy some of my favorite pictures from the past year.  When I think back on 2012, these are my “happy thoughts.” 🙂 Sorry it is a bit long, I had a hard time choosing only a few happy times!  Guess it’s not a bad problem to have.  Happy New Year, friends!
