Project 31. Days 4 and 5.

Day 4: Post a picture of you in your favorite outfit.
These days my favorite outfit is all about comfort. I alternate between wearing my pajamas all day long, and my maternity jeans paired with a gray or black tee. Since those aren't very glamorous outfits, I thought I'd post a picture of another favorite thing I wear: my baby.

Day 5: Write a blog thanking someone who has made your heart come alive.
I'm pretty sure most wives doing this project will write a letter to their husbands. I don't want to disturb that trend, so here goes:

Dear Kevin,
Can you believe we've been together over 9 years? When I think of us, I still picture us in my mind's eye as the 18 and 21 year olds that we were when we met. I don't see us as getting older or getting bogged down with life. I think that's a testament to how you've made me come alive. The love that's in my heart for you, and for us, is greater than it was then, but that first date was the very beginning of the rest of my life.

I am so very comfortable with you. I can be my complete and 100% self around you, without worry of judgment or embarrassment. There's nobody else I can say that about. We've been through a lot, but even through our trials I never worried about our security. Despite it all we've stuck together and grown stronger. Thank you for accepting me for exactly who I am.

And through that love, we've created a family! A perfect little family that makes my heart melt and jump and continue beating. This family is my life, and it's a life that I've wanted for so long. Now it's here, and even though it is passing by oh so quickly, it makes my heart feel alive.

We're awesome. :)

  1. Good pic of you and the little girl! Also, you have got to quit making me all teary-like. It's bad for my reputation. :)


I love comments! I read every single one and try to respond to most of them (during the baby's naps or in between loads of laundry). I value any and all thoughts, advice, and tidbits that you want to share!
