Love Is...

a pair of socks. no, seriously!

i have been so blessed to meet so many wonderful people through this blog that encourage me, laugh with me, cry with me, support me, and understand me, people that don't have any actual ties to me or obligation to care about me. these people touch my heart and warm my soul on a regular basis.

sarah, over at baby talk, is one of those people. she's about to go through her first cycle of IVF and decided to order some cute socks for her retrieval. well, she wound up with a few pairs of them and decided to send me one for our IVF. her generosity, kindness, and sisterly love were poured into a pair of socks and the gesture brought tears to my eyes.
even miracles take a little time

man, i'm getting all sappy...but while i'm on the track, i might as well ride the train...


yesterday was B's and my 9th wedding anniversary. yup, 9 whole years. it's been an incredible journey with him, a bit of a roller coaster at times, but incredible.


B is the kind of guy who just makes you feel comfortable. his sense of humor and kind nature belie his intimidating stature. i could talk to him for hours and never tire of hearing his voice. when he hugs me, he hugs me with his whole heart. when he holds my hand i feel safe. when he kisses me i still feel the flutter of butterflies.


he challenges me when i'm wrong, but admits when i'm right. he laughs at my stupid jokes and actually thinks i'm funny. he treats me like a queen, insisting on opening all doors for me. he goes along with my crazy ideas and accepts my imperfections. he stands behind me 100% of the time and would defend me to the end. he is my best friend and my soul mate.


our life together is not perfect, but it's as close to it as i think anyone can be. i love him with all my heart, soul, and being. i am so grateful to have him as my partner in crime. how did i get so lucky?

happy anniversary, B!!!

I love the socks. I've seen the idea of lucky socks floating around the IF realm for awhile and I think they're so cute. Where them to all your appointments in the stirrups and I hope they bring you much luck and feelings of love.

Happy Anniversary, hope you have many great years and adventures ahead of you.

Hello from ICLW!! And happy 9th anniversary!!! Mr. T and I are almost to our #7, and it has been a rough road, but no one ever thought we would even make it to 2, and when we hit 3, they said we would never make it to 5, and not that we are going on 7, I think everyone is finally realizing we are in it for the long haul. You two are such a cute couple and I love how he makes you feel! You definitely hit the jack pot with him!
