One time I had a blog that I actually kept up with! I hate not having the time to do this anymore. I'd love to be able to say "I am committing to posting a blog every day/week/month/whatever but I know I won't hold the commitment. Maybe committing to just blog more? Maybe...
Y'all. I know Christmas is technically months away but I am excited already. I am trying to buy gifts sooner rather than later this year and just being in the Christmas spirit earlier makes me HAPPY!

In other news, we are planning Eli's second birthday party! SECOND. Lord. Hold me. I'll post a picture of his invitation soon!
Well. I have failed my blog. BUT.. I have some news. I have decided to pick up a hobby, do something for me and meet new people while maybe earning some cash for savings on the side. I have been to several Thirty-One parties in the past and have hosted two. I just love the products and their functionality. So, I am diving in. Let me know if you'd like to host a catalog or online party.
There you go! I am excited. I need to get around to updating the blog since it is really 6 months plus that I have had time to devote to it. I'll get around to it.
This past week I traveled to Boston for work. It marked the longest time (6 nights) I have been away from Eli since his birth. I learned that my life at this point really isn't worth it unless I am with my family. I enjoyed my time away but I appreciate and love the precious time I have to spend with my son so much more than any time away would ever give me. I pray that I will always remember the longing I feel when not with Eli when I am cursing away the day or exhausted from running around chasing him all day. That is life. Those days are always worth it. He is always worth it to me.
I want you to know how important it is to love other people. Not just becasue it's the "right" thing to do but becasue it is the Christ-like thing to do. Loving people isn't always easy. It is much easier to judge others, look down on them, hold grudges against those who are mean to us. But this is not what we are called to do. We are called to love one another no matter who they are or what they do.
I hope your dad and I will raise you to be a God-fearing man but even more, I hope you spend each day bringing joy and spreading love to others. It is so important to care about other people. We are to build up one another. I pray that you will see the value in each individual person regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, and social class, etc. Every person has worth, Eli. Every person deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. Life is too short to be mean to others. Remember that Christ's love spreads to all. You're the best thing that has ever happened to me and I love you so much. Happy Valentine's Day baby boy.
I love Tiny Prints. I think I have ordered Christmas cards from them for the past 2-3 years. They have great quality cards for affordable prices! They are giving away 50 classroom Valentine's Day cards to bloggers that post about their V-day Cards! How cool is that?
