My Loves

In honor Valentine's Day (even though I completely acknowledge that Valentine's Day is a made-up holiday), I wanted to do a💗 LOVE💗 post.

Random things I love:

  • a good cup of coffee.  In all honestly, it doesn't even have to be good.  I just love coffee.
  • a kid-free Target trip.  Preferably with gift cards in hand!
  • a clean, organized, nice-smelling house.  Nothing feels better than a clean house!
  • binge-watching Netflix shows like Once Upon a Time and Parks and Rec.  Leslie Knope is my spirit animal.
  • office supplies.  Pens, markers, and binders, oh my!
  • a planner.  I'm not a "I'll put it in my phone" kind of gal.  Paper planner: all day, er-y day.
  • color-coding.  You better believe that my planner is color coded.  
  • a good book.  (but it has to be a good-good book, or I won't finish it!)
  • a nice fall or spring day where we can be outside and not be cold.  or sweat.  I hate sweating.
  • hand lettering.  Chalkboards, cards, whatever.  It's relaxing.
  • I loved to color before it was cool.  Ask my mom.  I wanted coloring books for Christmas 15 years ago. 
  • food.  Any kind.  Just food.  I'll take all of it. 

Things I love about my husband:

  • He is the most selfless person I know.  He would do anything for anyone before doing something for himself.
  • He does things and doesn't tell people about it.  That shows that he does it for the right reasons, and not just for the praise he might receive.
  • He always puts me and the boys first.  Whatever we want or need, he makes sure we have it.
  • He truly does spoil me.  He knows that food is my love language, so he will get me a Snickers over flowers any day.  He gets me.
  • He is the smartest person I know.  I can't tell him anything that he doesn't already know.  He's like a walking Google.
  • He can fix anything.  Build Anything.  He's my handy man!
  • He's the best Daddy, always playing with boys, taking them on great adventures, and loving on them.  
  • He is my soul mate, my better half, my best friend.

Things I love about Finley:

  • He is genuinely funny.  He doesn't even have to try.  His one-liners are so good, I should write a book.
  • He is the most caring, kind-hearted little person I've ever met.  When I recently gave myself whiplash (jerking myself back up as I slipped on ice), he held my hand all day and helped me around the house.  He just did it, without anyone asking or telling him to.
  • He is so much fun.  His imagination makes life interesting!
  • He has the best facial expressions and gestures.  He's so animated and makes me laugh.
  • His understanding of God amazes me.  His love and outspokenness for Jesus is inspiring and puts me to shame.
  • He is such a wonderful big brother.  He is helpful, understanding, loving, and compassionate when it comes to his brother.  

Things I love about Colin:

  • He is the sweetest boy, always ready for cuddles, kisses, and hugs.
  • His memory astounds me.  He remembered how to get to the playroom at his ABA clinic after he had been there only one time four months earlier.
  • He has such a slapstick sense of humor, and it's the cutest thing to watch him laugh at people falling down or doing other silly things.
  • He has a way of drawing us to the most beautiful things.  When we went to Disney last month, he stopped and looked at a fountain that everyone else seemed to bypass.  After stopping and looking, I realized that he had found the most beautiful scene at Disney Springs!
  • He loves music and I love watching him dance to his favorite songs.  He makes us dance too, which is entertaining.  
  • He is who he is and doesn't care what anyone else is doing.  I wish I could be more like him.  

I know that I am a little biased, but my boys are so special.  The three of them, together, have the most amazing qualities.  I wish I could be as awesome as they are.  I wouldn't trade them for the best cup of coffee in the world! a Target shopping spree.....nah.  Not even for that.
