Happy 2nd Birthday to my Sweet Boy!

It’s so hard to believe that you are two years old.

Time is slipping through my fingers like sand.  It’s so bittersweet.

I love seeing you grow and learn.  I love watching you be the perfect little person that God made you to be.

I love hearing you say “Mommy!” and I love your sweet hugs and kisses.  There’s nothing better than telling you that I love you and hearing your sweet little voice say “you to0” and grin up at me.

I do wish time would slow down.

Just a little bit.

I’m so blessed to be your Mama.  signature

NYC for My Birthday Weekend!

The Husband got me the best gift ever this year: a solo trip to New York City!  This has been one of the best gifts he’s ever given me and it was a total surprise.  I have wanted to go to NYC for a long time now and now I’m going! I am so excited!  This will be my first big trip by myself as well as my first trip to NYC and I’m so looking forward to it!

I have to take a minute to brag on my Hubby…he really is great!   He’s so good to me and I could say it a million times a day and it wouldn’t be enough.  The best husband and father ever!  The Lord has really blessed me with him.

I have the plane tickets, the hotel and my museum tickets ready.  Everything is packed with the exception of my clothes (still gotta check the weather closer to the departure date).  I can’t wait!

Now, I also want to say I’m a bit anxious about this trip.  I have never traveled this distance or flown by myself.  It is a little intimidating because of the unknown but I’m up for the challenge.  My motto right now is “Let your faith be bigger than your fear.”  I think it is always important to keep stretching yourself and always be ready for a new challenge.  It is good to get out of your comfort zone when you can because this is when you really grow.

I’m up for doing a trip that is just all about what I want to do.  That sounds so selfish as I read it back…I don’t mean it that way, I really don’t.  The Husband is really a good travel buddy and we always have a great time together.  It will just be nice to not have to take anyone else’s feelings, tastes, wake up times, etc. into consideration.  In some ways I’m not sure how I will do.  I’m so used to asking everyone else what they want and need that it will be weird to rely solely on what I want.  I had never really thought about it before.

I’m really going to miss the Husband and my Little Man.  As much as I am looking forward to going and enjoying myself I’m looking forward to getting back to them more.
