five years down five hundred to go :)

last weekend was our anniversary and i spent my first night away from the littlest

we chose our hotel based on the fact that it has a fun pool but unfortunately it was rainy and cold
so we went to the spa instead and then out to a super fun super yummy dinner
it was an excellent anniversary celebration!!

this man is everything
he is kind
he is patient
he is hard working
he is honest
he is loyal
he is loving
he is handsome
he is the best daddy
he is my husband
he is so many more things

i am a lucky lucky girl

i am beyond thankful for the five years we have been married 
we have lived a lot of life together in that short time and we continue to get closer and closer

i love you more with every day that passes RT
thank you for being mine :)

happy wednesday!!

hashtag withoutshoes

one of my cousins works for TOMS and right now they are doing an amazing campaign to raise awareness for children's health and education

i wanted to get involved and so can you 

all you have to do is post a photo to instagram that has your bare feet in it and use the hashtag #withoutshoes

for every picture TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need

it can be whatever kind of picture you want .. close up .. far away .. whole body .. side of your foot .. kids feet .. dogs paws ..anything!!
just as long as you don't have shoes or socks on and you tag #withoutshoes and @toms

the campaign goes through this thursday may twenty first which is the actual day of one day without shoes when people all over the world will be going without shoes the whole day

three years ago i was sitting in church on mothers day when it hit me like a ton of bricks

i want a baby

RT said no at first but within a few months we were trying to start our family

and then the darkness fell

the next two mothers days were basically unbearable

but yesterday i sat in church on mothers day with my light in my lap
she crawled around between the whole family .. smiled at everyone .. and basically just acted like the precious little angel that she is
as i sat there i was so overcome with emotion i couldn't help it cry
being the littlest's mommy is one of my greatest joys in life and i am so very thankful

happy monday!!
