It's The Little Things [Us]

I am so excited to be participating in this link-up with Ashley and Jess! It's titled "It's the little things" and I can not tell you how much I love this. There's so much more to life then dwelling on anything else, but your family. Savoring all the giggles, all the hugs and especially all the kisses with my sweet family makes my heart so full. It's easy to take day to day things for granted. As this year progresses this is one of my goals to remember to savor every moment. From the sleep deprived nights to the cutest dance moves and the simple, yet most meaningful moments with my handsome. 

Two tiny hearts.
One is mine.
One is Rae's.
Both for our favorite person to take while he has to be away from us so he can keep us close by. 


The instant smile and shriek Rae makes when she hears the FaceTime ringtone melts my heart every.single.time. We're hating being apart from our favorite, but we are making the best of it. Morning, Lunch time, Dinner time and Bed time FaceTime sessions are in full effect. I love that she recognizes him even on the phone. If my phone rings and it's not FaceTime she always looks at me like, "Dad?" And if that wasn't cute enough, she now either kisses the phone bye to him or makes the kissy noise. SO CUTE!! We're also not minding the mail we've been receiving! Drawings from Pumpkin just might be my most favorite thing to receive by mail. 



But that doesn't mean we aren't counting down the days until we get to pick him up at the airport! Can't wait to have our little trio back together and back to lots of belly laughs, morning coffee dates and maybe even a living room fort night.
