Giving Thanks


When you sit and think about your life...
You think about how perfect it's going to be...
The memories you are going to make...
The family you are going to have...
The education you may have...
The career you may choose...

No body plans for the most difficult times in life...
Failure, Divorce, Sickness...

But it's the difficult times...
That make you the strongest, that make you the bravest...
That build your character, that give you hope & allow you to dream....
It's the most difficult times that lead you to the happiest times in your life.


I never thought I would find a love like this...

I never thought I would find someone that 
I wanted to share my life with again...

I never thought I would find someone that
makes me smile and giggle like him...

I was so unsure if I would ever find someone
that my girls would get along with so well...

I never thought I would find my match,
my partner, my lover, my best bestfriend!


So even through the bad times...
Through the difficult times...
Through the emotional times...

Beauty Shines, Love Finds a way....
Happiness is Brought back into lives...

No matter if you are looking or not looking at all...
When the time is right love will be brought back into your life.


When love finds a way back into your heart...
It is truly the most amazing feeling in the world...
Not much compares to the love you have with your partner!

I forgot what it was like...
To be able to lean on someone else...
To be able to depend on someone at that level...
To actually trust someone again with your heart...

Then you add your kids and his kids into the mix...
and it is this absolute crazy mess, this crazy perfect mess...
It's amazing how quickly bonds can be formed with each others kids...
and it's amazing how much they can each touch your heart in so many different ways!


We haven't had the chance to have our kids together much at all so far...
But that will change in the weekends / months to come...
They talk about each other all the time...
The excitement is there...

Though I know times will be tough...
The excitement between them all won't always be there...
I can only hope they can all build relationships / friendships together...
Even if it is a sister / brother ... Fighting one moment / best friends the next type relationship!

I know Bob and I both are excited for this winter together...
and even more excited for what is to come this summer with the big group...
It's amazing looking forward to the future...
being excited for whats to come!


Each and Everyday I am Thankful for this man...
Thankful that he chose me and I chose him...
Thankful that the timing for us worked out...
Thankful that we both gave each other a chance...

So Thankful that we have found each other...
Thankful that we have chosen to love each other...
Thankful that we have chosen to have a future together..

This Thanksgiving was great!
So much to be Thankful for this year.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

These images where from out night out at Texas Roadhouse...
The night before Thanksgiving, with the entire crew....
It was a blast, can not wait to do it again.
