I have a wonderful family, amazingly fabulous friends, a husband who is just as handsome, sweet, and annoying…errr… I mean funny, as the day I met him, and of course, my two-little baby monsters, who fill my life with so much love, snuggles, laughs, tears, poop, and germs that… Continue reading What am I thankful for?
