five


We are living a life full of blessings. 
Day to day I don't always really appreciate 
how truly blessed I have been; 
to have found my best friend 
and be sharing my life with him, 
to be raising our beautiful babies together.

It's a funny feeling 
to be watching your dreams unfold before your eyes, 
and to know you made them happen, 
but to wonder what on earth you did to deserve them.

Family is everything;
we learn,
we fight,
we treasure,
we laugh,
we grow,
we love,
and we get to do all of that together
... as a five.

    1. Oh that is so good to hear. We always said it was the magic number for us... But it still feels a teeny bit scary to be rocking a very steady boat. But I honestly can't wait to start our adventures as a five. x
