surely you didn't think i'd forget to post about my valentine on valentine's day? of course not. i just happen to be working. sshhh...
this is my favorite picture from our honeymoon. we had a sudden change of plans and ended up in the mountains instead of at the beach. but it didn't matter. we were together.
if i love my husband then i also have to love his love for land cruisers. we were dating when he bought his first one in 2004 and we have not lacked one since.
i love that he doesn't always take things seriously. sometimes i forget to have fun and he helps me with this. this year marks our 8th valentine's day together. although, today, i worked all day and he had classes part of the day. but he cleaned up a mess the dogs made and vacuumed and that's gift enough for me! last year we received some devastating news on valentine's day that forever changed our lives- jay's dad was not expected to live and we would have to wait 2 more days beyond the 14th after some testing to assure he had no more brain function. he and i were just getting over a terrible stomach virus and were not able to travel until february 16th. so now valentine's day will always mark the years since his dad passed away. tomorrow we will get to see our baby on ultrasound and learn who is in there- a boy or a girl. it is a bittersweet week for us and i love that we have each other for all of life's ups and downs.
i ♥ sunny days and warm weather. i am a wife, daughter, sister, mama, and registered nurse with a husband, two wonderful labradors, a precious baby girl, and beautiful family and friends. i love to knit and make things when i can find the time, which is what inspired the name of this blog. Now it feels like our family- we knit 3 people into 1 sweet family.
Jay and I met in January 2004 and were married September 9, 2006. We moved to NC in May 2007. We are enjoying life's journey and where it has taken us so far.
Mary was born June 26, 2012 @ 4:23pm. She is a sweet baby and we can't wait to see who she becomes.
Cotton is our 7 year old yellow lab. She is a great dog who is way too smart for her own good. Barley is our 6 year old chocolate lab. She is sweetly submissive and smarter than she looks (and acts). We love our girls!
