I feel like y’all know so much about me and not so much about the people who mean the most to me, my family. Today I want to highlight those who are the nearest and dearest to me and share a little more about them. What they like, dislike, and a few reasons that I love them.
AKA “The Mr.”. Russ and I have been married for nearly 10 years now and have been great friends for 11 years. He is a quiet and shy guy but once you really get to know him, watch out, he can be quite a handful. He loves cars, NASCAR, and history. He dislikes almost all social media, having his picture taken, and has had the same phone for years now because “it still works doesn’t it”. He is truly a simple kind of man (I can’t hear that song without thinking about him). I love him because of his amazing hugs, his hard work ethic, and that he keeps me grounded and smiling all at the same time.
This girl is my mini me. We both fight a battle that says our greatest strengths can also be our greatest weakness’ too. She is organized like no 8-year-old should be and is an excellent planner as well. She is a bit of an old soul and often needs reminded that it is okay to just be a kid. She loves to read. If you don’t watch her closely she would read until 10:00 at night because “It is just so hard to put a good book down”. She also loves to cook and create things. Her dislikes are math, snakes and spiders. I love her obedience that makes parenting her easy, her huge dimples, and her heart to serve others.
Emily keeps me on my toes. She is our class clown and goofy girl. She is a free spirit and we never know what to expect from her, but we aren’t exactly surprised by anything she does or says either. She keeps our family laughing and has a huge heart full of compassion. She loves Minnie Mouse something fierce, is the pickiest eater I have ever met, and never gives herself enough credit. She dislikes trying new foods, bugs, and the dark. I love her curly hair, her amazing hugs, and that she just does her. You do you Em.
There are so many other people I could add to the list of those that have stolen my heart, but if I really got started down that road I may never be able to stop. However if they happen to read this (and I feel certain that they are) I think they probably know who they are ;).
Other things that have stolen my heart are…
Coffee, Longmire, carbs, summer, chalk art, donuts, farm-house style, tacos, my planner, scones, Gilmore Girls, Instagram, pasta, my camera, cookies, exercise, all things pumpkin, Target, and snail mail. Wouldn’t you know half of those items are food… did I mention carbs?
Tell me one thing or one person that has stolen your heart?
