On this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for love.
Particularly, the love for a little girl that has made our lives infinitely better. A little girl who changes the way we look at the world.
A little girl who watched her first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this morning. She was fascinated by the musical/dancing numbers, and often applauded when one was over.
A little girl who suddenly started giving unprompted kisses on my cheeks.
And just… kept… going.
A little girl whose giggle lights up my heart.
A little girl in footie Christmas jammies, who threw multiple tantrums this morning when we wouldn’t let her play in the TV stand cabinet. Because this little girl is a toddler, who has opinions and wants to do whatever she wants, and can’t articulate those wants like she wish she could (and like we wish she could).
But she’s still damn cute.
Also? Very thankful for the man who helped make that little girl possible.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and may you cherish the love and blessings you celebrate today.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 32 and have been married to Michael for six years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
