Dear Crissy

This is motherhood

Happy

This is motherhood. Funny thing? This was one beautiful, shining moment amidst a day of tantrums. Tantrums are motherhood, too.

This photo makes me incredibly happy. I told Evan to smile at the camera, and he did it! How crazy is that?

    This is a beautiful picture! It seems like whenever I get to the point of feeling like nothing is going right in a day with my kids, they do something little that totally warms my heart. Being a mom is such a one-of-a-kind wonderful experience!

    Great moment caught on film. I love when the lovey-ness kicks back in after a rough patch in the day, especially a random hug.
