I love my little life!!

My Brother, myself, and Sarah his girlfriend.

Me, Grandma Mable, and Colton
I love my little life with my amazing husband, son, and dogs! I have had the most amazing 2 weeks filled with so much love I could literally feel myself overflowing! If you read my last post you know I celebrated my 30th birthday on Halloween, well I thought I celebrated it! Little did I know, I would really celebrate it the Saturday after. Brad my amazing husband, my Mom and family threw me a surprise party. I was completely clueless, blindsided, and surprised! The emotions I felt when I walked in that room were beyond words, I started crying, I was happy and so overwhelmed by the love I felt from everyone in that room! So many helped to make it perfect and make such amazing foods, all my favorites! I was shaking with excitement. It's so hard to explain how I felt. As I said in my previous blog I never thought I would celebrate this many years of my life. So many in my family have always held me so close because of this fear too, no ones ever came out and said that but I've always just been able to tell. There is so many people that mean so much to me. The obvious ones Brad, Colton, Mom, Dad, Brandon and all the rest of my immediate family, but then there are people who may not think there a big part of my life, that we may just be friends or acquaintances, little do they know they mean the world to me. Every person who comes into my life has an impact, it may be big, it may be small, it may even be bad, but it's all a part of my life making it a part of me. Just like CF. I only hope these people know the appreciation I have for them. The love of my family has no doubt kept me fighting so hard to kick CF booty, especially in the really hard times when I want to just give up. The thought of their love for me and the pain and disappointment it would bring them if I gave up brings me back every time. I love my family so much!! My cousins are more like siblings to me and the love and bond I have with them is really quite special. The younger ones being grown now and bringing significant others into the family that I come to love too! I can't even go into the love between my Grandma and me in this blog, but her impact on my life is beyond words! I have a huge support system and am blessed and very loved.

Then less than a week later I got to go on an anniversary get away with Brad to celebrate our 9th year of marriage. We went to a beautiful bed and breakfast, Castle in the Country in Allegan MI. It was such a beautiful area and we got to go tour downtown Holland as well. We got massages, relaxed and re-connected! It was beyond amazing. We went horseback riding which I loved, miss riding so much! Ate at some great restaurants and went crazy in a candy store! Who could ask for more?! The whole time I just couldn't stop thinking I love my little life!

Also before my birthday Brad said my gift from him was to get a puppy, I had been looking for a few weeks any ways. So we went to the shelter.I went in thinking I wanted another big dog and a girl, because I'm surrounded by boys! Well I came out with a boy, Frank, who is a Dachshund/Lab mix! If your thinking about getting a puppy PLEASE visit your local shelter! You just will never know who will win your heart, like our little Frank did!
