A Day of Love

This morning, I am reminded of how rich I am to wake up to these lovely little faces every single day.

I feel blessed by how simple it is to make my children happy, and try hard to focus on the fact that Disneyland is just as special to them as waking up to parents who leave them cheesy little Valentine mementos and are available to build forts and eat candy kisses with them.

I am thankful for the simple things in life, like a home, being healthy, and having jobs that cover our basic needs and even a few of our "wants."

I am the luckiest girl that ever was for the girlfriends that keep me sane and laughing till my insides hurt.

My kids have the most amazing tribe of grandparents, and aunties, and uncles, and friends, and neighbors.

And my husband is just lovely for appreciating my distorted humor, being patient with my quirks and insecurities, and his exceptional kindness and gentle loving spirit toward the tiny darlings. He manages quite well at keeping me entertained in the most unexpected ways even a decade after the I DOs are said and done...

My life is so full of love- today and every other day.

Chocolate and home made cards are always a nice touch, tho. ;)

Hope you are all feeling the love!

I wish I could have popped out of a giant red velvet cake in heart-printed jammies bearing gifts of chocolate and coffee for you on Valentine's Day morning!
