The Good Stuff

Today has been hard. I had to literally come face to face with some fears. To stand up for myself and what I stand for. And it's still not quite over...

I decided in January that my word for the year would be "lucky"--as in Lucky 13. 

Today, I am lucky to be marrying the love of my life who soothes my soul even on my very worst days. I am lucky to be the mother of Griffin and Bela, the two sweetest children I've ever met, who make my heart soar with pride. I am lucky to be the daughter of two of the kindest people I know (and the sister of another). I am lucky to have a great job working for truly great people. I am lucky to have a wide, compassionate circle of friends who inspire and encourage me. 

And this is all that really matters, isn't it? 

{This is Day 2 of the 31 Days to ... A Calm Life}


  1. coming face to face with fear and dealing with unpleasant people puts life in perspective. We do need to count our blessings. And YOU are one of our greatest blessings.

  2. Now following along! Can't wait to enjoy the journey together!
