Living life to the fullest

It has been an intense week. My days started at 5 and some days this week did not end until 11. However there is something satisfying in living each day to its fullest. I remember when Nate was about the age Andrew is now I was overwhelmed at the realities of being a working mom and having a baby. This time around I am filled with thankfulness. I am glad for everything that fills my days to make my life so full. I am so thankful that I have a job which both challenging and rewarding. I'm also thankful I have friends to pray and laugh with. I am thankful for a god who loves me and cares about the small details of my life and gives me strength where I am weak. I am thankful for a husband who takes me out for oysters and octopus, and of course I am so very thankful for the two little boys who fill my life with joy!

Florida Trip

We planned to go to Florida to visit Oma and Papa in late January. My maternal grandmother passed away unexpectedly and the funeral was while we were in Florida. Papa was kind to drive me and Andrew across Florida so that I could go to the funeral and say goodbye to my mema. It was a good trip and although traveling with 2 was  challenging we feel good that we have our first trip under our belt because we plan to keep on traveling. It was a great visit and it was nice to see both sides of the family.
