The Reasons...

My cup runneth over with love today. I'm just in that kind of mood. I woke up and walked up to my little babe's room, stared at him peacefully sleeping, and thought, wow, how lucky am I? That got me thinking about how grateful I am for my hubby that he is such a good Dad to our baby, and it just continued to snowball in my head...

How much time to we sit back and APPRECIATE all the wonderful people in our lives? I don't think I do it as often as I should. I get caught up with the mundane, the everyday things that can overwhelm my life...

So today....It's about to get sentimental up in here :)

JUST ONE Reason I Love.....
The Hubby--He can ALWAYS ALWAYS make me feel better. He will give me a hug, hold me and just let me VENT without judging whatever I have to say. Love him for that.

Baby D--He is full of PURE JOY. He brings happiness to every single one of our family members. That is a hard thing to do, but he does it the SECOND he comes into a room (can ya blame 'em?)

My Dad--Awww, my Dad is just the BEST DAD a girl could have. He is always bettering himself. He is constantly trying to make himself a better person, a better Dad, a happier person. He makes me want to strive to be MY BEST! Love him.

My Mom--She is just the most amazing Mom ever. I can't help but tear up when I write this, because she means SO MUCH TO ME. After all she has been through last year, she has shown me what a TRULY STRONG person she is. She is just flat out beautiful -- in every way.

My Sis Court--My little sis. Sometimes I think she is more mature than I am (well I KNOW she is). She is such a tough cookie, but such a sweet person all around. She always wants to take care of everyone else, and the last person she thinks about is herself. She has always been that way. As we have gotten older and grown closer, I have come to love her EVEN MORE.

My Sis Taryn--We are two of a kind. We think alike (sometimes dress alike), and we can finish each others sentences. ONE reason I love her is because she can make me laugh so hard I cry. She is truly an amazing girl/sister/girlfriend/aunt, that one. She's gonna do BIG BIG things, I can just feel it.

My Bro Ry--How I miss this brother of mine. He is in Argentina right now, and I never thought I could miss someone so much. He is doing such good things down there, and for that reason alone, I love him oodles of noodles. Keep it up, bro!

My In-Laws--I am lucky in this aspect, because they are such good good people. They have taken me in as their own from day one, and I couldn't be happier to be part of their little family.



---I hope this gives you a little inspiration to go and tell someone why you love them today---

  20. I thought I had already "joined this site" but I am new to the whole blogging thing so...

    I just wanted to tell you how MUCH I loved this post of yours. I think you're so right. Its easy to forget how good we really have it when we're having a "down day" and its sometimes the tiniest little thing that can make you fall in love all over again, or make you see the blessings in all the ones around you. LOVED LOVED LOVED this! Makes me miss my little brother!
