Today was Honey's birthday! I took the afternoon off from school and Olive and I went to her work to surprise her. And would you believe that I didn't take any pictures??!! What was I thinking?!! Honey was so excited to see us standing in the lobby when she came down the hall! We went to Cuppies and Joe, a cute little cupcake place, to get a birthday cupcake. It is a darling place and we would have been able to enjoy it so much more if a certain little friend wouldn't have had the ultimate meltdown over not getting to hold the entire cupcake. When we left there, we went to spend some time with Dano. Honey, we know it wasn't the ideal birthday, but we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Happy Birthday!! We love you!
This is one of my favorite pictures of Olive with Dano and Honey.
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
