Happy Birthday Babe!

Today is not only Mother's Day, but it is also my sweet husbands birthday. I have been joking with him this week that Mother's Day trumps his birthday, but it has been fun for our kids to share this day with the both of us. I am so lucky to call this man "mine". Still to this day I wonder what I did to deserve him in my life. I would like to share just a few things why I love him.

14. He puts our family first
15. He has a beautiful smile

17. He loved getting up with our kids in the middle of the night to rock them

20. He loves to buy ties
21. He enjoys running when he has the time
22. He is very athletic

Spt- Most Treasured Item

This week's challenge was to show & tell one of your most treasured items. The catch (Yes, there is a catch) it must be smaller than a deck of cards. I instantly thought of something that I cherish with all of my heart, and that is my wedding ring. I absolutely love my wedding ring! Richard, for our tenth anniversary surprised me with a new wedding set. Every time I look at my ring I am reminded of things we have accomplished together. We survived Medical School, we had 3 children, bought our first home, started Residency, evacuated from Katrina, moved back to NOLA, and I couldn't imagine doing all of those things with any other man. I am so blessed to have him in my life. That is why my most treasured item is my wedding ring. It is not only beautiful, but it is a constant reminder of how lucky I am.
