Who out there is exactly where they thought they would be 10 years ago??

Defiantly not me, I am so much happier than I ever imagined I could be!

I have an amazing husband who loves me more than I could have ever thought possible and 4 beautiful, creative, loving kiddos.  This last year has been an eye opener in more ways than one.  We have a son heading to high school and a beautiful baby boy in foster care whom has changed our lives forever.  I am so proud of how my three kids have taking this little one and treated him as he was part of our family. I said to them recently “thank you for loving so strongly”.

As life moves forward you slowly come to certain realizations. Here are mine: surround yourself with positivity. Fear is a very strong feeling that can help you grow tremendously and love conquers all.

So tomorrow is my big “30th” birthday and I remember years ago how I would celebrate for an entire week. When I became a mom that changed because it wasn’t about me anymore it was about my little ones and to this day this holds true, most likely because my son shares the week with me 🙂 I decided to have some fun with my birthday this year and do a cake smashing photo shoot. What’s 1 more Candle? Right!

Thank you to my amazing husband for snapping these fun photos of me as I am always behind the camera. Enjoy!!
