I love that I have a man who loves me for me.
I love that we laugh.
I love that you love chocolate.
I love that I love chocolate.
together we can eat it together and laugh!!
I miss you when I am at work.
I know we are more than just husband and wife.
We are in love and want to be together.
I love how patient you are.
-it means I don't have to attempt to be-
I love how you are kind.
I love that you let me cut your hair the way I like it.
I love that you let me wear your sweatshirts
and when you see that I stain them you smile.
I love that you love getting your feet rubbed.

Men I lOVE

Grandpa Klohn
I cling to memories long ago
when life flowed through your veins
I wonder as the time goes by
will I miss you less?
In reclined position, letter opener in hand
a smile so large
A sense of humor I adore
one you loved to share
Receiving laminated words of wisdom
through the mail
I loved you then, I love you now
Forever and Always
My Grandpa
you'll be
You're ring, a tangible piece of you, I wear around my neck.

Todd you are a distinguished example of what a father should be and for that, I thank you.

Dad, thank you for unconditionally loving me and Ty, Rylie, Oliver and Olivia.

With these three men carving their path my two "mini-men" have a great start!!
Here's to future fathers and many more fathers days!!!

Turquoise in June

Turquoise in June

Origin known, soul embodied

derived from peace

sent to deliver and receive

love through times of

turmoil and joy

cannot be whole without

the other

once but a faint whisper

grew to a flutter

became a treasure, my treasure

through doubt and dismay

denial and fear

tears became strength

As my olive branch was extended towards me I was blessed with two gifts.
The olive tree is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity. For that reason alone I chose to name my blessings after the offer of peace that they are.
As I watched Olivia smile in the sun today I was reminded just how close we are to perfection. She is what I strive to be, she glows with innocence and love. I then quickly looked for Oliver who is never too far from his partner in crime. They are beautiful and lovely on their own but together their unique quirks and personalities are that much more lovely.
I couldn't help but think of how blessed I am to have found Todd, I truly am better with him and hopefully he feels the same!!!
To Extend
in definition
to stretch out, to enlarge in area,
scope, influence and meaning
can one little whisper deliver such
can one little flutter offer
together two are one
expanding in strength
delivering peace
