I can't imagine what life would be like without these three.
Ingrid. She's 3 going on 30. She's witty, joyful, spunky, outgoing, bold, and a natural born leader. I've never known someone who loves life as much as she does. She does everything 110%. When she laughs, she laughs hard. When she cries, she cries hard. She doesn't hold anything back. She's taught me what it looks like to live in the moment. To enjoy the simple things. To live life on fire.
Lucy. She's six months old, and a beautiful little peanut. She's got a million dollar smile that makes complete strangers stop in their tracks to say hello. She's a cuddler and a lover. When she was born, DJ and I gave her the middle name Michelle, which means "Gift from God." And that she has absolutely been. An amazing gift that we completely adore.
DJ. My best friend. My companion. My biggest cheerleader. My rock. He's adventurous, thoughtful, strong, bold, positive, outgoing, joyful, handsome, and kind. There's never been a project too big or a hobby too outlandish to try. He's purposeful and lives life with contagious enthusiasm. When I first saw him across our college campus I was completely and totally head over heels. And I haven't recovered since.
Each day with these three is a beautiful adventure. Sometimes the adventure isn't sexy...well, let's be honest, there are lots of times that it isn't. Sometimes it's spilled milk, piles of laundry, and up in the middle of the night. But other times it's cuddles on the couch, dance parties after dinner, and laughing so hard that I cry.
I'll take it all. Every moment.
