I love my Life


Simple but true! I really love my life........ Ok Iam not writing this post so it will look like I live in a fairy tail land or Caycee land as some like to say ha ha! Iam writing simply to remember where Iam in life at this moment and how "perfect" it is. I really feel that I have been blessed in many, many ways. When I was younger I always dreamed of having a family, being a wife, a stay-at home mom and a close relationship with God and my family. I have always struggled with contentment in my life. I have always felt like there was something missing, or if I just had a little more life would be "perfect". Well it is finally like a light went off ! I have everything I could ever want/need right in front of me! Don't get me wrong I still struggle alot with being materialistic. If you know me you know I like nice things and have a little problem containing myself or hearing the word no! I just want to take a moment to list all things that Iam blessed with in my life.. 1)God - The creator of this beautiful place, and the one to thank for all the ways Iam blessed. Ever since Todd and I moved to Charleston we have become closer to the Lord. It has helped us in more ways than I can name. 2) My wonderful husband. I love him so much and this is a good feeling. No, Todd is not perfect, but I could not have asked for a better man.(I really mean this). He is a wonderful husband, father, and provider for our family. I could go on and on about Todd. He has the biggest heart in the world! I love you honey! 3) My Child. I love,love being a mom, don't get me wrong for the first months a wasn't so sure ha ha! I finally know that feeling of loving something more than life it self. If you are a mom you know what I am talking about. Carson I really don't remember life without you! You have brought more joy to our life's in the past 5 months than I could have ever imagined. 4) My family. I have the best parents in the world. My mom and dad love each other and they show it. I think this is so important for children to see growing up. I love that Iam so close to my parents, I really don't know what I would do without them. I love you mom and dad. My brother and his wonderful family! My brother and I have always been very close we are 1yr and 9 months apart. We played together all the time growing up. He is a good father, husband,and just all around good man! He has the sweetest babies and wife ever! My In laws Todd has the most kind hearted mom in the world. I love her and could sit and talk to her for hours. Todds dad, it took me a while to warm up to him... but now I know he just a big teddy bear inside! He cracks me up and I have alot of fun with him :) You should see him with Carson, I love it! Todds sister! Todd and his sister are very close, which is so nice. I think Todd gave Jamie a hard time growing up, so he is making up for it now, by being a sweet big brother! Carson loves aunt Jamie and Jamie loves Carson we cant wait until next weekend when they come see us:) 5) My friends I cant say enough about having awesome friends! Wow I have been very blessed in this department! I am still very close to a group of about 9 girls from high school its hard to believe that we have friends for almost 10 years! I love these girls. It is so fun when we get together, we just sit and talk all night long. Iam so excited for 2 of my very special girlfriends right now , that are getting married!! Yay I cant wait! We have met some of the most wonderful friends here in Charleston our small group family, the awesome girls I work with, wonderful neighbors, all of our "Florence friends" that live here. I love them all soo much! I don't what I would do without all my friends! Did I mention I LOVE THEM ALL sooo much! Ok this is def the longest post ever and I promise never to make you read this much all at one time again! I just don't ever want to forget all I have to be thankful for!
