awesome and amazing.

i stumbled upon this random blog the other day. and i hate it. but i love it. i can't stop reading it. and i'll be honest mostly i just read it to laugh in my head at how crazy she is. her life is "completely perfect". and her husband is "the most amazing". and she is the luckiest. and i just laugh and laugh at how.... positive she is. and i make fun of how much she loves everything.

and now i have to confess. i was just reading it and loving how crazy she is to think everything is the best. and then BAM! i realized that i was the fool. i realized that i thought i was cool cause i was debbie downer. and then i realized that all the things her husband does that are "so amazingly awesome and awesome and amazing and awesome" my husband does without even a "thank you" from me. i'm the worst.

so i'll probably be saying thank you a lot more. and maybe i'll even find the greatest joys in the littlest of things. and then i'll probably realize how amazingly awesome and awesome and amazing and awesome everything is.

adding a new year's rez... see the awesome in the everyday.

i can't say enough good things about my baby sister. she is one of the greatest humans i know. she's amazingly talented, smart, and so so funny.  plus she's a complete babe. today is her birthday. and i am totes glad she was born 23 years ago. she's been my partner in crime. my bff. someone i know will always support me, even when i'm wrong. i'm so lucky to have watched her grow up and become such an amazing wife and mommy. she's destined for great things, that one. and i hope she has the best day.

(this was on my wedding day. she and i covered this whole cake with little pearls. it's one of those memories i'll always love.)
