A Boy and A Girl - 12 Years Ago

12 years ago, a girl spotted a boy and a boy spotted a girl. She saw him when they we warming up with a jog around the track and asked who he was. He first spoke to her during circuits in the weight room. They 'played' Ike Ball together. They bonded while she puked from her earlier cross-country practice.

12 years ago, a boy gathered his courage and asked if a girl he barely knew if she would meeting him at the football game between their schools.

He was brave and asked her to be his girlfriend that night.

She made him wait.

She said yes.

They grew up together throughout high school. They matured together through college. They are suffering, surviving and thriving through med school.

They are incredibly happy.

12 years ago today, all this started and it has all been worth it.

I love you Husband

So very very much

Our Little Firefly

There is something magical about seeing the first firefly every year. The twinkling lights, like stars hanging close to the ground, mark the season. They can make you smile like a child and take you back to those days when holding one in your hands was a thrill.


I remember catching them in my bug box that Grandma's neighbor made for me and putting them on my nightstand, my own little stars floating in my room.

I have always loved fireflies and they still bring the same smile to my face.

There is a special firefly that has a smile on my face lately...

Husband and I have captured our own little Firefly.

He's due to arrive January 2nd.

We just found out yesterday that we're expecting a sweet little boy and we couldn't be more excited! I can't wait to put paint on the walls of his room and get everything ready!
(sorry no pictures cause, well, I've just always thought that was a little strange)
