Happy Father's Day!

No matter what people tell you, nothing prepares you for the wonders of parenthood.

And though I could spend hours and hours publishing post after post filled with words after words describing how delightful parenting is, one area of parenting that deserves special attention is the delight that comes from watching your spouse parent.

I have the blessing, honor, and privilege of sharing my role as parent with my husband, Matt.

To know him as my husband is so much more than I deserve, and to know him as my son's father simply fills my heart to overflowing.

I could spend the rest of my life simply watching these two boys interact. Their relationship brings me such joy and peace.

Thank you, thank you, thank you God for blessing me with the perfect husband for me and the perfect father for my son.

This "Father's Day" post would not be complete without mentioning that we are extremely blessed by our extended families. Our parents have shown us how to be parents, and we owe them so much. More specifically, Matt and I each have fathers who adore us and love our son unconditionally. They have embraced grandfatherhood effortlessly and beautifully. We cannot wait to welcome another baby into the mix for them to love on.

Happy Father's Day.

*I realize that Father's Day is not until Sunday, but because we will be happily spending the weekend with our fathers, I wanted to get this post published before the joyful weekend came and went.


  1. Awwww! Happy Father's Day, Matt!

    Messaging you about the books. Have a great rainy day!
