A Few of My Favorite Things

I didn't grow up with cousins close to us.
I love that in this family, cousins mean automatic best friends:

I love this smile. Like really love it. I love when he's engaged and in the moment and so happy to be there. Life isn't always that way, but man oh man, when it is, this smile melts me. Every dang time.

And this almost eight year old who is full of sass and ambition and just enough attitude to drive us absolutely crazy. This girl who loves to help me in the kitchen and writes me letters every single week; yup, love her too.

And of course you can't read a post these days without little Lucy in it.
Apparently watching soccer can be more exhausting than playing it.

We're really trying to focus on the positive around here lately. Because sometimes that helps keep things in perspective. Well okay, a lot of times that helps keep things in perspective. And perspective is a good thing. We're working on embracing the good days and communicating through the rough ones. Communicating as a couple and as a family.

And above all else, we're remembering how blessed we are.

Truly, truly blessed.
