A letter to our charming home.

Dear Charming Home, 
    Tuesday you officially become ours. Despite having driven past you countless times in the past few months, this time when the key is turned in your door, it will be different. Tuesday we start a new adventure in living a good life together.

     A year ago, we wondered if you were possible. We didn't think that we could afford to realize such a dream but we prayed and waited and saved (and hoped alot) and we found our answers and the money. We keep touching your walls and listening to the creak of your 134 year old floors. It's still kind of hard to believe that we did this- that we worked hard enough to be able to buy you.

    We are proud of us for accomplishing this and proud of you for everything that you stand for. A dream fulfilled. We have so many hopes for you. I cant wait to raise my babies in your walls. We can watch them grow together and when we send them off into the world, know that you will keep a special place in their hearts. They will hold for you the same loving sentimentality occupied in my own heart for the childhood home that once grew me too.

We love you and dreamed of you. It is good to be home.


Just a little side note for my memory, On Friday 1/18/13 we closed on our lovely home and due to some incorrect wording on some paperwork nothing will be filed until tuesday( because monday is a holiday )and then we will get the keys.

A night out fit for a princess

  One really neat thing about being a parent, is being able to sit back and watch your child enjoy the very same things that brought great joy to you when you were little, and tonight was no exception to that.
  Tonight Lily went to her very first live show; Disney's Rockin' Ever After on Ice. It was phenomenal and we all had a wonderful time. Although I would be lying if I said there were no tears. However, those teary eyes may or may not have been from the mama sitting next to her little princess. I just can't help but to get chocked  up watching her mesmerized expression. Hooray for the magic of childhood.
  One of the cutest things to watch was each time either something exciting happened or a new princess would emerge. Lily would take her tiny hands and cover up her mouth almost as to contain the intense amount of joy and excitement that would swoosh over her. Other than that, and the occasional "mom look did you see that" or a "how is she doing that mom?". Lil spent most of the show holding my hand or cuddled on my lap completely entranced with the show.
   It was a wonderful night full of magic and good friends. I cant forget to mention, we were able to share this wonderful experience with our good friends and next door neighbors Alana and her sweet daughter Lyla. We couldn't have asked her better company.
  Tonight was a night filled with magic, laughter, and memories to last a lifetime.


I am so glad we were able to share this experience together. I will never forget the joy and excitement that beamed from every inch of you. And I hope that this memory stays as close to your heart as it is to mine. I love you so much baby girl.
