... it is a river...
Ok sorry. (Napolean Dynamite anyone?)

So I've been trying to go to sleep for the past hour and a half but can't. And you bet I'm tired- I'm a mom of two kids under age two. Not complaining mind you- just saying. But I know, it's early right? It could have been a glorious thing to get like a good 8 hours of sleep. But that hasn't happened the past three months and I don't know when it will happen next. (My girly is a nighttime eater for sure.)

Anyways, sleep is so not what I wanted to talk about. I want to talk about love.

I just couldn't stop thinking about love.

What it is, what it means, how it feels. Mainly how abundantly I have it in my life and how crazy, crazy, blessed I am.

Man, I love my kids. They are... love embodied. They are manifestations of God's love for me. They are Josh and I's love. They are also SO their own persons, with souls capable of loving themselves and others all on their own.
And I know they both love me too. A lot.

But what really kept me awake is thinking about how blessed I am to have Josh's love. This guy...
has taught me the meaning of love.
His caring for me is so genuine, passionate, and pure.
Love is complete unselfishness and Josh understands and demonstrates that everyday.
And he has a sense of humor to boot. Which I am so crazy about.
We have fun, people. A lot of fun.
If you know Josh and I really well, you know that we aren't fans of being separated for very long. I want to be with him like... all the time. Obviously we can't at this point in our lives, but we do everything we can to maximise our time together.
When I see him after work or when we wakes up (since he works nights), it is quite literally like Christmas morning. So cheesy, but SO true. I'm the happiest girl on the planet. I feel like doing a little dance. And I usually do. (Poor Jaclyn knows this firsthand now)

Aaanyways, our life isn't glam or anything, but it's so much better than that. Our love for each other and our kiddies is so real.

We've been married 3 years and a couple months and we are so much more in love than we were on that day. I know it will just keep getting better too, which makes the future look pretty bright. And by pretty bright I mean amaaaazing. Seriously.

Our wedding day was a dang good day though.


  1. This is the sweetest post ever.

  2. You and Josh are awesome! It's too bad not everybody in the world acts like you two do!
