Filled to the brim


with gratitude.


I'm filled with gratitude for the wonderful holiday we just enjoyed with family. Eating delicious food with people we love and are so thankful for...it just can't be beat.

I'm filled with gratitude for my husband.
Adam is my better half. That man's love for me, and his dedication to fatherhood, helps me know my heart will always be safe. And snuggling with him after Thanksgiving dinner just happens to be heaven :)

I'm filled with gratitude for my son.
Brooks has blessed me with the gift of being a mother, and has caused my heart to grow in ways I never knew. His smile just lights up a room!

I'm filled with gratitude for the baby growing inside me.
Feeling our little one move around in my belly is the very sweetest feeling. And knowing that I'm in a partnership of creation with God is beyond incredible.

I'm filled with gratitude for my Heavenly Father and his Son, my Savior.
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have given me everything I have...and it is their love that has blessed me most in this life. Their Gospel makes it possible for me to be with my sweet family forever!

(These photos were from our trip to Spokane with my family this past Thanksgiving...what a great holiday it was with all of them! Can't wait to share the rest of the photos)

I cannot believe you are going to be a mommy of 2 in a few short months! One kid is amazing enough, but two? That means we are officially grown up! ha. We are sure a long ways away from doing the shopping cart at church dances and running away from young women camp leaders!
