Day 5

Today I am thankful....SO, SO THANKFUL....that this sweet baby boy was brought into their world yesterday. His mom is my friend from college, Tara. She was my inspiration for doing thirty days of thanks and how fitting that her little boy was born in November. Calem's big brother, Declan's, birth was not easy for Tara, pretty scary in fact, and words cannot describe how thankful I am that Calem and Tara are both doing GREAT and are healthy. So blessed.

Calem Robert Maple

Calem is one lucky boy to have such amazing parents and a wonderful big brother! Calem, Auntie Lizzy is so, so happy you are here and cannot wait to meet you and kiss you! Much love to all the Maple's and a big 

Day 6

Today I am thankful for all of the people that love us. That may sound cocky but it is not supposed to. Tomorrow (tomorrow in terms of thankful days) is a very special day for Seth and I. It is our 3 year anniversary. We were lucky enough to be surrounded by so many amazing people. Some of Seth's dad's cousins traveled from the East Coast to celebrate with us. Some of our friends came from Maryland and New Mexico and Texas. Some of our friends and family came from Orange County. But no matter where they came from, they were there because they love us and were excited for us to get married.

I am especially thankful for these people below. The people from our wedding party. They've celebrated with us, loved us, and cried with us. Some of them are family who we are lucky enough to see often and some of them are the friends that you rarely see, but when you do, you feel like you just saw them yesterday. Those friends who live far away (far, FAR away for a few) but you feel like they are close with you. Those people that you haven't know for very long but feel like you've known forever. They are the people that stood by us as we shared our love for each other and became husband and wife.

Thank you to Anisa, Erin, Vickie, and Stacy for standing by my side.
And thank you to Kenneth, David, Shawn, and Matt for standing by Seth's side.
We love you all! And are so thankful you said yes when we asked if you would be in our wedding party!
