365 days ago you stole my heart

“I didn’t lose myself when I became a Mother. I found myself.”

Happy birthday, my sweet boy! Juju, I hope one day when you look back at your photos you’ll never doubt the amount of support and love that has surrounded you since day one. You’re infectious smile has already made the world a better place. I pray that God will continue to watch over your every step, your every trial, and your every breath.

Tomorrow we’ll post your chair pictures, but for tonight here’s a look back at last weeks Tahoe adventures!

“You live but once; you might as well be amusing.” -Coco Chanel

Some kids get to go to Disneyland a lot, Juju gets to go to Napa a lot. We took a short afternoon trip to Napa on Monday with the family and Brandon. We had a delicious meal at Morimotos and even double dipped and ate at Sonic on the way home. Be on the lookout for photos from this upcoming weekend, we’re taking our bugger out to the snow for the first time!

Playing with Gratitude

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude.” -A.A. Milne

I wanted to find a special way to say, “Thank you” to those who gifted Juju with a Christmas gift this season, so earlier this week I simply sat back and observed as he explored each and every new toy in his new clothes. Thank you for the gift of love. Thank you for the gift of friendship. Thank you for being in our lives to all our family and friends! Your external gifts are an extension of the love you guys have for us and that makes us feel incredibly lucky!
