This Family of Mine

This family of mine brings such great joy to my life.  The best part is that just in 10 weeks (give or take a few) we will be increasing by one more.  We cannot wait to meet Ezra and Jude's excitement is even growing.  He is constantly asking questions like, "Is baby Ezra awake?", "Does baby Ezra want to go to...(wherever we are going to)?", "Is Ezra kicking?", "Does Ezra want to play in the playroom?", etc.  We happen to think it's pretty cute that Jude wants to include Ezra in all the things he is doing.  We took some pictures after a wedding this past Saturday.  It must be noted that these were requested by Jude and that it was around 90 degrees with probably around 80% humidity or close to it (which may explain why we look a little wilted).  Enjoy. :)

 This sweet boy said, "Mommy, dance with me." ^^^  He has stolen my heart for sure.

Here's To 7 Years of Wedded Bliss

7 years ago today on August 11, 2007, I made a commitment to the man of my young heart's prayers and greatest dreams.  Not one day have I ever had to doubt my decision to love him for life.  Matthew Wilson is not just my husband, but my best friend.  As we celebrated our anniversary over the weekend, I could not help but reflect on the blessing marriage can truly be if founded on Christ, commitment, trust, friendship, respect, and love.  The past seven years have seemed to pass swiftly, yet with utter bliss.  I cannot wait to see what the years ahead bring, because our marriage has only improved with each year.

We had a date night Friday to celebrate our anniversary.  It started with our favorite restaurant, Maggiano's.  Then we ventured to Vinoklet Vineyard to view an outdoor play, Macbeth by Shakespeare in the Park.  Time spent with just us two has been a rare commodity this summer, so the night was met with great longing and appreciation.  Here a few photos from the evening.
