All About Essential Oils!


I have such a fun post for you guys today and I can’t wait to share it! I’ve been interested in essential oils for i’d say a little over a year now and I truly love learning about their amazing uses. My friend Jessica is here to guest post today and I am so happy to introduce you all to her! The following post is from her, enjoy! 

You might have recently seen posts about people using essential oils in various ways,
or maybe even know someone who has been using them. 
I started using Young Living oils a few months ago and have had quite a few people ask for more information about what essential oils are and how they can use them in their daily lives. GREAT QUESTION!

First, just a little background about myself so you understand where I am coming from and then we will jump right into the fun stuff. I am a graduate student in a Doctor of Physical Therapy program pursuing a career to make an impact on the health and wellness in the lives of others. I am really passionate about treating our bodies with clean eating, vigorous and empowering workouts, and toxic free substances. When we treat our bodies with love and respect we feel better physically, emotionally, and cognitively. Essential oils have made a huge impact in my life. They’ve helped my fiancé and I with immunity support when we are feeling sick, substituted our cleaning and beauty products that are full of toxins, enhanced our quality of sleep, and have supported our emotional well being!
“HOW?!” you might ask! Well you are in luck because I am going to start with the basics and build from there!

What the heck is an essential oil?
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid (hydrophobic molecules can permeate through your skin and cells easily) containing aroma compounds from a plant—roots, seeds, bark, etc. This specific compound provides vital support and structure to ensure the success and health of its raw plant material. Through a precise steam distillation process and/or cold pressing, the purest essential oils formed are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Although they are recently starting to gain worldwide recognition, their uses are far from new. History tracks back to the use of botanicals as healing agents as early as at least 5,000 years ago!

Why Young Living?
After doing hours of research across the many essential oil companies I was easily sold with Young Living.

*By far have been around the longest, since 1993 and created by a DOCTOR
      *Seed to Seal promise!! (Which means that they own and oversee all of the farms for organic crops. No middle man. No tricks up their sleeves. Just the way I like it!
*They only create 100% therapeutic grade oils which is the highest and purest form. After using them for a few months I can tell a HUGE difference in quality compared to other companies.

How to use them!?


How to get started with essential oils!?
When I first started looking on how to dive into using oils, I felt overwhelmed with how many different varieties there were. A close friend of mine recommended starting with the premium start kit and it was the BEST. DECISION. EVER! It came with the 11 most popular oils, a stress away roller bottle, sample oils, travel bottles, Ningxia to-go energy drinks AND a diffuser of my choice. This kit has been life changing for my fiancé and I and I plan to incorporate YL oils in my day to day for the rest of my life. 
Even better, when I signed up with the starter kit I automatically got WHOLESALE price for life. No catch. They are just that awesome!

If you are interested in getting started with your own kit you can follow the link below. Make sure to choose the WHOLESALE account to receive that discount for life. They also take some personal info from you in case you ever decide to share young living with others…. because we know your friends will want to dive in to oils too!
 (You get a $$ bonus!!)

Vacations I Want To Take

After another fun and eventful Monday in corporate America, I thought what better way to sulk in my misery than to list a few of the vacations I want to take.
(Because let’s be honest, if I listed them all, we’d be here all day. And no one wants that.) 

I truly love traveling. It might be one of my favorite things to do. However, my bank account does not agree. And lately, neither does my five year old because she’s “offended” that we DARE not invite her to places. 
But that’s a whole other story for another day…

In no particular order, I present to you some of the vacations I’d LOVE to take some day. And if i’m lucky, my ridiculously handsome husband will pick up on this and surprise me in 294 years when we can afford a lavish vacation. 😉 

Napa Valley
Something about Napa Valley really appeals to me. Like really really appeals to me. The wine lover in me wants to be overlooking the gorgeous vineyards, sipping on wine, and forgetting that I actually live the life of a peasant. I mean really, who wouldn’t want that?! I’ve seen the pictures, and yes, every single one makes me jealous. It’s cool. Keep on sipping your wine with your floppy hats, i’ll just be sitting here wishing I was you. 
Some day i’ll go there. Who wants to join?!

Bora Bora
If this ISN’T on your dream vacations list, who are you?!?! Have you not seen the over water bungalows? They are perfection. I want to be able to jump off my private porch into the crystal clear ocean, see that same ocean from inside my bungalow, and bask in the amazingness that is FSBoraBora. (That’s Four Seasons. I like to know what i’m talking about.) Shelby, hook it up, would ya?!

New York City
Yes, this is a place I haven’t been. I know, I know…it hurts my heart, too. There shouldn’t be much explanation as to why this place is on my list. I mean it’s NEW YORK CITY! 

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
If you follow us AT ALL, you know that we love Mexico and we go quite often. However, Cabo is one place we haven’t been. I want to go there and experience the whole “deep sea fishing” nonsense that is hyped up about that place. If that doesn’t scream a good time, I don’t know what does. Oh and i’d also love to go on a catamaran ride! (Is that what those boats are called?!) We did Cancun on our honeymoon and now it’s time to cross Cabo off the list! 

A Cruise
I’ve wanted to do a cruise for some time now. We are going on one in January and this will be our first one so any advice is greatly appreciated! 🙂 

Of course my vacation list is a mile long, but this is just a glimpse into a few of the ones I am dying to take! 
What are your favorite vacations you’ve ever taken? What’s your DREAM vacation?! Hope you all had a great Monday and you have a fabulous week!

Send Your Mom Flowers On YOUR Birthday

{This is a SPONSORED post and I am so grateful to The Bouqs Co. for this opportunity!}

If you know me, you know I LOVE traditions. (Like really really really love them)
I would have a tradition for every week if my husband wouldn’t sincerely judge me. 

One tradition my husband DOESN’T think is crazy is sending our mama bears flowers on OUR birthdays. I know, I know. Your birthday is for YOU to be spoiled, but hear me out on this one…

Every year for the past few years (since I could start affording my own things and didn’t need to ask my mama for money), I love to send my mom flowers on my birthday. It is something unique and special in my eyes. (Unique until everyone starts doing this and I set a massive trend!) I mean if you think about it, you owe that woman everything. SHE BROUGHT YOU INTO THIS WORLD! And i’m sure she has reminded you of that a time or two. AM I RIGHT?! We love you mamas! 😉 

Let’s be honest, I’m a sucker for flowers. M knows this. Flowers can make me smile in ANY situation and I just absolutely LOVE them displayed at my home. 

Who orders flowers online? Come on….raise your hands! I know I do. Flowers are my “go-to gift” because we live in the middle of nowhere and it’s not easy for me to run and grab something for people or go visit them in the hospital. Happy, sad, just because….flowers are good for literally ANY occasion. 
So if you’ve ever ordered flowers online…keep reading! 

Have you ever heard of The Bouqs Co?! You’re in for a real treat with this one, friends! Have you ever wanted something MORE from your flower company?! What about farm fresh, cut to order flowers?! 


The Bouqs Co is bringing you the next BIG thing with flower services. Not only can you order flowers through them, you can do next day delivery as well as use their subscription services or wedding packages! Like I said before, I send my mom flowers every year on my birthday as well as sending M’s mom flowers on his birthday. How simple is it that I can set up to have flowers delivered on those days each year?! Boom. Simple. Done. Sold. 

Y’all, these flowers are GORGEOUS. So much so that after I signed up to do this campaign (WOAH. GASP. A BLOGGER DOING A SPONSORED POST.) I ordered some flowers. I don’t just sign up to talk about companies, I sign up to talk about companies I truly use. Do you want an awesome deal from this company?! When you use THIS LINK, you get an entire  bouquet free when you order one! You seriously can’t pass that up! I can’t wait to get my flowers and show to off to y’all! Follow the ‘ole instagram to see those photos. 

Do any of you love ordering flowers for people online? Go give this place a look. I promise you won’t regret it. And if you DO go order something from them, drop me a line and tell me fun things about your order! Who are you sending to?! What’s the occasion?! LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS AND BEAUTIFUL LIFE STORIES! Just spice your life story up with flowers first. 😉

7 Things To Do With Leftover Spaghetti

We’ve all been there. 
Ladies, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about. 
We embark on the endeavor of making dinner, trying to be fancy with that spaghetti, and we end up making enough to feed every homeless person in your entire state. Yup, we’ve ALLLLL done it. 
DON’T YOU FRET my friends! 
Today we (my husband and I) are here to bring you 7 Things To Do With Leftover Spaghetti! 

1. S’ghetti Fries 
When you’re over the typical “chili fries”, go for something WAY more exciting! And not to mention using leftovers, how awesome! Take your potatoes, dug fresh that morning from your garden (or store bought is fine), and make your every day french fries. (Or frozen is fine) Once you’re ready to eat, top with your s’ghetti and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. PURE PERFECTION! Also, grate some fresh parmesan from Italy overtop, or if you don’t have any,
 store bought is fine. 

2. S’ghetti Smoothie
Okay, we’re all into being healthy, right?! Spice up your morning green smoothie! Kale, spinach, apples, celery, carrots, AND S’GHETTI! 

3. S’ghetti & Coke
Have a long day at work? Need a drink? Open your cabinet and find your out of rum?! *BUT WHY IS ALL THE RUM GONE?!* Don’t you worry my dear friend, slip that s’ghetti right in with your coke and you’ll never know the difference. Except when you stay sober all night. But, it will be delicious and you can thank me later! 

4. Biscuits and S’ghetti 
Who doesn’t love biscuits and gravy?! (Well, i don’t but that’s beside the point) I LOVE homemade biscuits. Pioneer Woman makes a great ‘drop biscuit recipe’ if anyone is interested. OKAY OKAY LOSING MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT! Top those biscuits with s’ghetti from last nights dinner and BAM! A full meal for your enjoyment! 

5. S’ghetti & Eggs
Probably our favorite on the list so far. (I say “our” because remember when I said my dear husband was writing this with me?! Isn’t he a gem?!?!) Toss some s’ghetti in a frying pan, top with eggs, and cook until your desired doneness. 

6. S’ghetti Con Leche
If you’re out of cereal, just use s’ghetti! Place in bowl, top with milk. You’re welcome. 

7. S’ghetti S’mores
I HATE when i’m craving a s’more but i’m out of marshmallows. Place your s’ghetti in-between two grahams and you ALMOST have the SAME thing! ALMOST.  


But let’s be honest, the BEST way to eat leftover spaghetti is after it has sat in the fridge all night in your tupperware. Cold, alone, and crying for attention. On the middle shelf. Un-noticed. A lot like my entire childhood. Hashtag middle child problems. 

Where are my spaghetti lovers at?!?! I hope you found this post fun and light-hearted! 
Hope you all have a great week!!
XOXO.

5 Reasons Not To Start A Blog

When it comes to blogging I get one question asked over, and over, and OVER again. “How do I start a blog?” As much as I would truly love to help people branch into the world of blogging, that is such an open-ended question and I have NO idea where to start with it. 

I can however, give you 5 reasons not to start a blog…

1. To make money

If you are starting a blog with the only intention being to make money, don’t do it. You don’t just start a blog and wham bam thank you ma’am you’re making money! Blogging takes a lot of work. It takes effort and time and patience. If you’re wanting to make money quick, get a real J.O.B. With that being said, people DO make SERIOUS money blogging. It just doesn’t happen over night. 😉 

2. For free stuff

Without fail, I will ALWAYS get messages after a review post is up asking how other people can get free stuff sent to them. Again, this is not a reason to start a blog. When you start a blog you aren’t put on some magical list where people send you things. This again takes time, effort, and patience. You have to network. You have to “prove yourself” in the blogging world. Companies want someone who is going to write them a good honest review. Not just someone who wants free stuff. I mean, that makes sense, right?!

3. Instagram followers 

If you start a blog and think your instagram followers are going to dramatically increase, you’re wrong. There ARE bloggers out there with THOUSANDS of followers, but again, this isn’t something that happens over night. Instagram takes time, a ton of hashtags, and the perfect filters. Not even sorry about the amount of hashtags I use. Get on that Instagram game and maybe you’ll be the next big thaaaaang. #werk #fingersnap

4. To “go viral”

This is just ridiculous. Who even starts a blog with this as a goal?

5. To make money and get free stuff

I’m not kidding. Starting a blog for these two reasons is silly. Start a blog because you have something to share. Start a blog because you’re crafty and want a place to showcase it. Start a blog because you have no friends. Start a blog because you live in a small town, with no Starbucks, and you have no friends and you don’t even have a store to shop at and because you really like baking cupcakes. 

I hope this post helped you guys! 😉 
Truly though, if you have questions about starting a blog or blogging in general, 
please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! 
Thank you so much for reading and following along this journey called life with me! 
XOXO

JUST GO FOR IT

Okay, here it is. No forewarning on this blog post because i’m just going for it. 
I’M BLOGGING FULL TIME. 

I want to, AND I WILL, start pursuing this blog FULL. TIME. 

Most of you are right now are probably saying “okay, so what?” and clicking that little ex to get out of this blog post. Bye Felicia. 

But little do you know, blogging takes A LOT of work. Unless you’re a blogger, then you know. You really really know. 

Really though, lets talk…

Blogging has been a passion of mine for about three years now. I had a “private” blog for about 6 months before I realized I had something special to share and made this here little blog. It’s MY corner of the internet. And you know what? I’m proud of it. I’m proud of the things i’ve accomplished because of it, i’m proud of the content i’ve created, and i’m proud of the happiness it has brought me. I never knew writing could do this for me. I never imagined writing to be my happy place. 

I’m not crafty. I’m not good at hair. I barely know how to do makeup. The list goes on and on. Half the time I don’t even think I’m a good mom or wife. But you know what I do know how to do? Articulate a sentence. And I know how to write. And I absolutely love it. I love that when I am writing, words just flow out of me. (Which makes me sound like I have some sort of sickness, but I promise I don’t.) 

I feel like this is the most anti-climactic blog post in the history of posts. But nonetheless, I needed to post it. Not for anyone other than myself, and that’s okay. 

So be on the lookout! 
More posts! Fun posts! Stupid posts! Life posts! WHATEVER! 
I am making this blog MINE again and I couldn’t be more excited!!

Make sure you’re following along our journey on Facebook and Instagram as well! 
Here’s to the new adventure of FULL TIME BLOGGING! 

LET’S DO THIS!!!!!!

You’re Not Better Than Anyone…

I see it so many times on the internet…
“I’m so glad i’m not married.” 
“I’m way too young to have kids.”
“I don’t know why people put their lives on the internet.”
“People just need to enjoy their lives and not worry about being settled down.”

Here’s a public service announcement for you….YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN ANYONE BECAUSE WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR LIFE ISN’T THE SAME WHAT SOMEONE ELSE WANTS FOR THEIRS.
Woah, weird, right?! SOMEONE might NOT want EXACTLY what you want in your life! Let’s alert the media….or at least BuzzFeed so they can write an article about it. 

I’m so sick of these BuzzFeed articles such as “30 reasons not to be married before you’re 30” or “15 reasons why being single really is the greatest thing on the planet”

I see it everyday. People preaching about being an “individual”, doing what makes you happy, living your life for no one but yourself…blah, blah, blah….but when someone does something “out of the norm” or not “following the trends”….it’s like all hell breaks loose and we create a bunch of banter on Facebook to make these people feel small. 

So why do people attack others for being settled down? Getting married at a young age? Having kids on purpose? Putting their life on the internet? 
Those are just instances I see in my every day life because they pertain to me directly, but it literally happens for EVERY occasion lately. Every stereotype of person. Every hobby someone indulges in. I feel like no matter what is said or done these days, SOMEONE is offended. Breathing probably offends half the people in this world nowadays. How dare she breathe like that…
People want to preach one thing, and do another. 
It’s rather annoying, in my humble opinion. 

If you want to be married, GET MARRIED. 
If you want to have kids on purpose, DO NOT FEEL BAD ABOUT THAT.
If you want to be single and travel, YOU DO YOU BOO BOO. 
If you want to start a blog about cats, BLOG BLOG BLOG! 

You’re not better than anyone because you’re single. 
You’re not better than anyone because you’re married. 
You’re not better than anyone because you have a good job or because you drive a nice car or because you choose to be a hippie or because you drink or because you don’t drink. 
The list goes on and on and on. 

Let people live their lives. 
It shouldn’t concern YOU what other people are doing. 

Okay, rant over. That’s been bugging me for awhile…

When Your 5 Year Old Hates You

It’s been such a fun week. Like the kind of week you just want to keep having over and over and over again! 
The kind of week where your dryer breaks, then your fridge, then your hot water heater…all in the matter of four days. AFTER you just bought your fridge off craigslist and paid an unhealthy amount of money for it. And your in-laws drive 4 hours each way to pick it up. And you stocked it full of groceries. 

And then tonight happens. 

We had just finished dinner and baby girl tried “salad” (which was ONE piece of lettuce with NOTHING on it because she dabbed it off with a napkin) therefore we let her have a push-up. YAY PARENTS! 
She was clearly having some kind of technical difficulties because it almost came out the bottom, then when we got that sorted out, she shot it through the top, causing it to go all over herself. This trigged an all out melt down. (Mind you, there was maybe TWO bites left of this stupid ice cream.)

I abruptly scooped it off of her and ran it to the trash can to throw it away. After BEGGING for another push-up and me telling her no, the full blown SCREAMING started. Enter daddy. He seems to be a great mediator for us women in the house. Bless his heart. 

After realizing we were not going to cave about getting another push-up, baby girl screamed those three words i’ve been dreading to hear. I. HATE. YOU. Followed by a lot of “YOU GUYS ARE SO MEAN!” 
But mainly….I. HATE. YOU. 

M and I were both silent. And then I cried. 

Do other parents remember the time their kid said those words? Am I a bad parent for having my FIVE year old say that to me?!? I feel like a total failure! 

Our child is spoiled. She is spoiled rotten but she also has boundaries which I thought were great. We aren’t push overs but we truly give her the world. I think that’s why this is so devastating to me. I’ve feared this day more than I could have imagined and now it’s here. The words are said. Her and I have since talked about it, which I think helped, but i’m still shattered. I’ve wanted nothing but to provide the best and be the best. I clearly fell short of that tonight. We are good parents. We have a good life and a good home and we have a good family. How could she POSSIBLY hate us?! I know it’s just something kids say, but man it hurts. It hurts so bad. 

I’ve always told M that I hope ONE DAY baby girl can appreciate all we’ve done for her. We have truly gone through hell and back for that girl. We’ve fought for her, we’ve fought for our family, we’ve fought for HER happiness and wellbeing. I know she’s only five and i’m probably blowing this all out of proportion, but for some odd reason I want to remember this day. I want to remember this moment. That’s why blogging and putting your life on the internet is so great. I can go back and read exactly how I was feeling, what I was thinking, what we were doing with our life….

Man… I. HATE. YOU. 
What STRONG words. 
I hope from this moment forward we can teach her better. And show her a better love. And just surround her with the kind of positivity and love she needs in the moments of a melt down. 

Parenting is hard work. Anyone who says it isn’t, they are LYING. 
If you are a parent and reading this, please don’t forget how bad ass you are. You’ve got this. Even on your roughest days, YOU’VE GOT THIS. Try your hardest. Life your best life. And love those little souls you brought into this world more than anything. It’s tough. It’s so so so tough. But at the end of the day, it is so so SO worth it. Even on the bad days. Even on the days like today. 
XOXO.

Life Update & What’s Coming! (A GIVEAWAY?!)

HOLY MOLY. Where has the time gone?!?
I feel like I say this with every blog post lately, but WOW i’ve been gone for awhile! I really really REALLY want to change that. Does anyone even miss me in bloglandia?!
Our life has taken huge turns lately and i’m still getting used to them! If you’re interested in hearing about a life update and what’s coming up in the ‘BOMBSHELL WIFE LIFE’ future, stay tuned…!

Well, baby girl started KINDERGARDEN. Excuse me, what?!?!? I seriously can NOT believe it’s already “that time”. Five years old has been a troubling age for me, too. The sass, and the attitude, and the meltdowns that come with five years old makes me want to lose my dang mind! It’s been rough and it’s been an ADJUSTMENT. Anyone else experience this?!? Also with the sass comes the most gentle and caring human being I know. I’ve said this for years about baby girl, but she truly is one of the most caring and compassionate humans I know! It melts my heart! (When i’m not wanting to rip my hair out.)

My best friend just got married and we drove over 16 hours each way for the occasion! It was so beyond amazing and couldn’t have been more perfect or beautiful! We have been friends for over 7 years and being by her side on her big day is something I wouldn’t have missed for the world! You know those super cute barn weddings you see on Pinterest and you think “wow, that is so gorgeous!”?! Yeah, her wedding was one of those! Absolutely stunning and such a fun night!

(If you follow me on instagram you’ve already seen all these big events so I apologize for a repeat)

One BIG THING coming up in my future is the Summit 2015 Conference! I haven’t talked about this yet because honestly i’ve been a little intimidated by it. This is my FIRST blogger conference I will be attending! I was so beyond excited when the people of this great organization reached out to me and asked me to attend.
It’s actually a HUGE honor and I think it’s HUGE for my blog!
It’s located in San Diego! (Oct. 23-24) Can you say VACATION?! This is open to ALL moms looking to raise happy and HEALTHY families! Some of the AWESOME sponsors of this event include Solgar, Veri, SmartFlour, and Dr. Bronners! Want to sign up? DO SO HERE and use the code WOW30 for 30% off!
Where are my Cali friends at?! (Or my Arizona friends who want to carpool?! EH?!?!?) Sound like you?!?! Im giving away a FREE ticket over on my Instagram!

M and I are also in the process of launching a new business! I am so beyond excited for this! Again, if you follow me on instgram, you’ve heard me rant about how he is such an entrepreneur. Well, he’s at it again and i’m so excited because it’s a business i’ve wanted to do for quite some time now! Want all the deets?! Stay tuned!

I’ve been thinking of setting more of a “blogging schedule” for myself. What do you guys think about that? What kind of posts do you like to read? Drop me a quick comment! I’d love to hear from you guys! I miss you all so much and I really will start blogging more! But for now, head over to my instagram and enter to win a free ticket to this awesome conference!

Dear Five Year Old Daughter

Dear Five Year Old Daughter,

Being your mom is my most favorite thing. Ever.
But there are times I want to absolutely run away and cry.
I want to write these times down so some day you might look back on this crazy life we’ve been living together and laugh, cry, or maybe even appreciate the memories we’ve created together.

I love this age that you’re in. You think you know EVERYTHING.
Sometimes I truly wonder if you do know everything, but I will never admit that to you.
There are days you out-logic your dad and I and I know you are his in some way his. (Your dad is the logical side of our relationship/family) How can a five year old out-logic me?! You my dear make it possible. You ask questions that make me even scratch my head. Like listening to music and asking “mom, why did she crash her car into a bridge? and WHY did she love it?! and WHYYYY doesn’t she care?!?!”

You are at an age where I want to scream on a daily basis. Terrible twos? HA! Two’s were a BREEZE!  Traumatizing threes? Those don’t stand a chance. Five. Five years old. There needs to be a manual for how to deal with five year olds. You’re kind of a monster. You have found your voice. You have found your sassiness. You have found your limits and you know the consequences when you push them.
You don’t let me go to the bathroom alone, EVER. Just the other day you came in and talked about the toilet bowl cleaner THE WHOLE TIME. Why are you so interested in the toilet bowl cleaner?!
You scare people because you think its funny and you wrestle with your dogs. I never thought my dainty little girl would ever want to wrestle with anything. You’ve grown up so much in the last year.
I think if I counted, you would ask 4,592 questions a day. Do you know what that does to a mom?!?!

But oh my darling, I love this age. You are so fun. You are so funny. Witty, and gorgeous, and kind and caring, and full of life. You are everything I hope to be some day when I grow up. Can you teach me how?
I’ve learned more from you in the last year of your life than ever before.
Something about the way you come into my room and say “mommy, you smell like fresh flowers” or the way you hug me and say “you will always be my best friend”.
I hope that is true, baby girl. I hope we are ALWAYS best friends.

Out of everyone I know in my entire life, I truly think you are the most kind-hearted person I know. You care so much about others, how they are feeling, and how things will make them feel in the long run. Even on the days I want to rip my hair out because of you, you look at me with this look. It’s almost like you know i’m losing my cool. You always tend to say “I love you mommy” right at the perfect time. You are at the age where you are attached to my hip. You want to do everything i’m doing. If i’m wearing a dress that day, you want to be wearing a dress. If you have picked out a dress, you want me to put one on. Are you sensing a theme? You LOVE dresses, little one. I love how girly you are. I always wanted a girly girl.

Five years old has been such a challenge yet exiting age for me. Everyday I wake up wondering what funny thing will come out of your mouth or what melt down you might have because of something silly. Thank you for giving me this life. Thank you for making each day worth it. Being your mom has been the greatest blessing i’ve ever received and I can’t wait to watch you grow up into the wonderful girl you are becoming. You’ll always be my best friend.

I’ll love you forever, i’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be. (I really love when you make me sing that to you before bed or when you’re scared. I cry every time, but for some reason you love it.)
