Happy 100th!

logo-normalIs the Oreo one of your favorite cookies? If so, you have a great reason to pick up a package of those chocolate snacks because that scrumptious cookie turns 100 years old today!

While I do love Oreo’s, I love Grandma Clara even more. And guess what?


TODAY is HER 100th birthday too!

Hubs and I would love to be with her on this special day. While we aren’t able to celebrate with her, she’s getting a sweet little party in her honor from her friends and caretakers.

Grandma Clara is an amazing woman and continues to inspire me. She is a blessing to us.

Happy 100th, Grandma Clara!


Happy Birthday, Hubs!


To the man who chose to wrestle with his boys on a very early Sunday morning instead of taking the chance to sleep in on his special day, I love you.


To the man who has given his sons big shoes to fill but will be an encouragement to them all along the way, I love you.


To the man who leads his family with integrity and pride, I love you.


To the man who picked me to be his bride and chooses to love me every single day in the best way you know how ~

sleeping in the living room by the woodstove on Christmas Eve, excited to see what Santa would bring us in the morning


you driving me crazy with that big grin on your face during our epic-long car rides to Southern California…with no air conditioning
