It's Been Too Long....

I am ridiculous. I love to blog, to write, but somehow this got lost in my priorities. 

This wonderful article pretty much sums it up for me:

Life with 9 kids is hard. Busy (too busy to blog apparently) and HARD. But please, don't get me wrong, things are great. Really great. Well, within my little world here within MY family, but that is for another time. I'm focusing on the good right now. The GOOD is so so much. Since September 20th (my last blog post).....

The kids started school. 
We traveled to Hawaii. 
Halloween with 5 Littles and some teens that love the day was fantastic. 
We are in the process of making some major, but amazing, life changing decisions. 
My photography, as I hoped, as become a very integral part of my life.
The triplets turned three. THREE. We made it. And we are stronger and happier than ever. 
We celebrated our 20th anniversary. 20.Years. 
We are finally content and complete with who were are as a family, and as ourselves. 

So, that is just the big stuff. As you can imagine the little stuff is like 3 million times a day. And I wouldn't trade if for the world. 

This is my world. Right there. My life. Nothing in this eternity matters more than them and these past four years have been the hardest of our lives but also the most enlightening. 

I am more in love with my husband and my family than ever. And that is the best feeling in the entire world. Once you have that, everything else truly does seem to be 'the little stuff'.

  1. I have just spent the last week reading this entire blog! I just wanted to say that you seem like such an amazing person. The people in your life must be very lucky to have you, to know you, and to love you. Your children are beautiful, their smiles are contagious. The love you have for your husband is so strong, amazing. The things you believe in, struggle with, inspire you...it all just reminds me so much of myself sometimes.
