"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity... It turns problems into gifs, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melodie Beattie.

They hold my children.
They are willing to play pretty much anything with my children.
I am so grateful for my parents, I could never express how much they mean to me. I had a wonderful childhood filled with a lot of love and a lot of laughs. No matter what heartbreak came along we never forgot as a family how lucky we are to have each and to never take ourselves too seriously.
My Mother is a very intelligent woman with an incredible strength about her.
My Father is extremely smart too, but he is also one of the most generous and kind people I know.

My Ryan, my youngest by 10 minutes, is 10 years old also. Ryan is this child who not only challenges me the most but he also surprises me the most. He is very artistic and creative. He can dance, sing, write and make incredibly elaborate Lego creations. Ryan has this very unique personality and he not afraid to be himself, which I admire.

Ethan, technically my second born but only by 10 minutes, is 10. I am so incredibly grateful for Ethan, besides being very smart, he is a charmer. He is extremely good looking and athletic (only a mother's modest opinion). He will be the one I will have to protect from all girls. People are naturally attracted to Ethan because he is quiet and sensitive and good. He just has this innate kindness about him.

This kitchen is so light and airy. I would love to entertain and cook with my boys in this space.

I saw this over at Black Eiffel and I could stop watching it even though I am deathly afraid of heights and was getting a bit queasy. I can't wait to watch the whole film. These guys are amazing.
