Ohhhh Christmas Tree!

Posted In: personal
I usually don't like to share "super personal" stuff on our blog because, to be quite honest, it's intimidating...but I would love to share this blog post with everyone today.
When I was little, I would always wonder about my future (I actually still do that all the time). I would wonder what my first kiss would be like, who I would marry, what my job would be, and occasionally I would think about my beautiful DAUGHTERS. I'm not sure if you caught that—"I would dream about my daughters." Well, if you have been following our blog for a while, you know I am married (to my amazing husband, Mark), and you know I have two sons. When I was only a few weeks pregnant with Wyatt, I remember walking around telling people that I "didn't care if I had a boy or a girl, I just wanted a healthy baby." Later, when I found out I was having a boy, I burst into tears. I then realized that I wanted GIRLS! You are probably wondering, "How on earth is she admitting this on her blog?" Wait for it, I have a point... Then Wyatt was born. MY LIFE CHANGED...FOR THE BETTER! He is our everything—my joy, my love, and one of the reasons I wake up every morning and try to be a better person. Now with Oslo here, that feeling is even more magnified. It's amazing how when you have your own ideas and dreams, God can just come in and completely rock your world with a better reality. I feel so blessed to have the family that I do! This past weekend, I made one of the "top five memories" of my life. We went to Home Depot to get our Xmas tree...we spent most of the time chasing Wyatt and keeping Oslo happy, but when we got home, it became "magical." Christmas music was playing in the background, Mark was cooking dinner, and Wyatt was handing me ornaments one at a time so I could hang them on the tree. I'm not going to lie, I cried then, and I'm crying now. Again, God is truly amazing. The dreams I had as a girl are nothing compared to what has become my reality :)
I am wishing all our blog readers, friends, and clients an AMAZING and blessed holiday season!
