Hallmark Moments + giveaway

Last month I was invited to attend a wonderful event at Hallmark Headquarters called Moments Between the Milestones. Hallmark has a brilliant campaign right now where they are helping us to appreciate the small moments in life. And if someone summons me to Hallmark? Well, I’m definitely there. In fact I was actually early which never happens.

They want us to see beyond the birthdays and graduations and anniversaries. We all make it a point to celebrate and send cards for those. No, we’re talking about those unique moments that only happen to us. They make us smile. They make us laugh. And sometimes they even make us cry like I’m about to show you in a *somewhat* embarrasing video.


feels like home

Five years ago, on this day,Β I married the love of my life.

It is the best decision I ever made.

I have two beautiful sons because of him.

He loves and accepts me for exactly who I am. Not for who I was. Not for who I will be.

Just me. Right now.

For better or for worse. In sickness and in health.

I don’t think I could ever show him how much that means to me.

That I am loved unconditionally. It is the only gift I willΒ ever need.

Being with him feels like home.

My heart is safe with him.

I am forever grateful.
