All of this to say, as I stare "Thirty" square in the face, I feel bettr in my own skin today, then I ever did as a 20 year old. And that's just plain weird. But it's true! And it's all because of these boys of mine... two little spectacular creatures that came from me and Marcus. They grew up with us, as we grew together. And it's because of my husband... who seems to see only me. His hands just as grabby and boyish as they have always been. And I love it. He's quick to pull me close to kiss and squeeze and whisper in my ear. The boys see it all the time... Love really does lives here in this little nest. And it's not short in the areas that I was sure we'd lose once the kids came along. We have a full measure of it all... and I still can't get enough of my man.
Valentine weekend I managed to have a full MSP schedule but I was able to whip up some sweets for my Sweets. I love to bake. The hours in the kitchen just fade away... I love being in the center of my home mixing and spooning and rolling things along while the boys play underfoot. It feels right to me. I love swatting theHotness away as he reaches in for finger.fulls of icing. I love him swarming about as I make my "Pretties" pile and my "Uglies" pile. He gladly eats up those that just don't make the cut.

It was an easy weekend full of cooking, gifting, pictures of our boys... time for us to celebrate everything we have together as a couple of kids who have a couple of kids.
Thank you for my goodies, Bay. Nothing in this world beats being yours. You notice. You remember. Your efforts are tireless. With you, nothing is out of reach... anything is possible. And that's the feeling I get to wake up to each morning.
And then there are our boys... our sweet sweet boys. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I grabbed a few pictures of our little hunks.
