This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 9 and 3 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Things I Love About...

...My Husband:

  • it was love at first sight when I met him 13 years ago

  • how we share memories of things we've done and places we've been

  • watching him be a daddy to our little boy

  • how he knows everything about old cars and rebuilt his '50 Chevy in only 2 months by himself

  • that we both love watching cheesy B movies

  • when we get to sneak off on a date night

  • we are each other's best friends

  • I know I can trust him no matter what

  • listening to him play me a song on his guitar

  • his blue eyes

  • our funny pet names for each other

  • how he always pumps the gas for me
  • that he is my first love, and my only love!

...My Son:

  • that fact that he is here, and mine!

  • how he looks like the perfect combination of me and Nick

  • watching him grow and learn new things everyday

  • when he holds his hands out for me to pick him up

  • hearing his laugh

  • when he smiles real big just to get me to smile

  • that he has always been a good sleeper

  • creating traditions that he will grow up remembering

...My Life:

  • how God has blessed me with not only a soulmate, but a child too!

  • making big life plans and actually seeing them come to pass

  • looking back through old scrapbooks and remembering things I had forgotten

  • that I am proud to be an old fashioned kind of girl

  • how I'm confident in who I am and what I want

  • that I am very close to my parents

  • the hobbies I love to do result in products that others can enjoy

  • closing my eyes and remembering the amazing places I've been to

  • looking forward to what adventures are before me

I hope everyone who celebrates Valentine's Day is having a good time with their special someone! My love and I have been together for basically 10 of the 13 years we have known each other, and married for over 8 of those! I am thankful everyday that I found him and kept him despite many naysayers of our young love! Very rarely does a true love story persevere in this day and age where so many see divorce as a solution or convenience. Together we have overcome unmentionable trials, both in our personal life and in our family life. We have truly grown stronger in our many years together, and daily talk of our plans for the future! Now that we have our very own little boy to raise together, we have a new tie that binds us and we couldn't be happier.

To end with, I heard a quote on a commercial that I felt was very applicable; Valentine's Day is not for saying "I love you", but for saying "I love US".
