Can You Believe It....

I'm off to celebrate the life that entered my world and flipped it a good one {Most of you may know the story, if not, read it here}.  

A year ago tonight, I could not have even fathomed I would be sitting at my desk blogging thousands of miles away from where I was then.  

But my world is made up of choices I have made and the Grace my God has given.  

I'm thankful for the chunky monkey that spins and twists in bed to cuddle in just the right spot against my side. 

I'm thankful for the crooked smile she's managed to inherit from me.

I'm thankful for all the lack of sleep and the moments of staring at her face as she grew before my eyes. 

I'm thankful for my little one and the next few days I get to spend Celebrating her precious life {Disneyland Here We Come!}



  1. Awww! This is so stinking sweet! I remember Hallie's first birthday. It seriously seems like 2983975 years ago. Have fun in Disney!

  2. I can say the same about her mommah! Hard to believe it's been a year, but OH, what a year it was!

  3. Ooooh! I can't believe she's going to be ONE! You are such a beautiful Mother, she's so lucky to have you! And have I told you how JEALOUS I am you all are going to Disneyland??? I LOVE that place, can't wait to take B there someday. Have so much fun, love ya!

    I can't believe you're going to Disneyland, so jealous!
