Love Love Love

I love my wife, my kiddo, our dog, and most of all...MY LIFE! I couldn't ask for anything more than what I already have. I get to spend time with those that love me, while doing the things that I love!!!



So, today, I told Lorelli that she needed to get to bed and get some sleep tonight because she would be "going to work with Mommy in the morning." She got all excited as she LOVES to go to work with me. The she said, "I'm going to work with YOU my mommy?" I said, "Well what other mommy would you be going with?" To which she responded, without even thinking about it, "Jennifer."

AWWWWWWWWWWWWW *TEAR* It was the sweetest thing EVER!!

Also...I am super duper excited about something. Mother's day is coming up. This is our first Mother's Day together. And we will actually be together. Lorelli and I will be in New York. Spending Mother's Day together with Jennifer and her mother. I could not be happier. Starting traditions and spending family time together.

When talking about Mother's Day, I always get a little teary. I have been a mother for almost 13 years now. I gave the precious gift of life and the chance for a family to a very special couple. And while I may never get to hear Pierce say, "Happy Mother's Day" to me, it moves me, almost to tears, to know that he is saying it to her.

Charisse! You just yanked my heart out of my chest and squeezed it throughout that whole post! First of all, I love LOVE the pics of Lorelli and Jennifer. (I swear the two of them look alike!) And it was so sweet to hear you'll be spending Mother's Day with your new family - and extended family. I'm excited for you.

But best of all was the surprise ending - because I didn't know about Pierce! What an AWESOME gift for you to give someone ... there's hardly anything more admirable and selfless.

Happy Mother's Day, my friend. :)
