 Happy 1st Birthday Miss Addie!
Yesterday Addie turned 1!  It's hard to believe that a year has passed since this precious angel became a part of our family.  She has brightened our days and made our family so much richer.  She had a fun celebration with family and friends yesterday which included a darling "smash cake"...she loved every present and especially every one's attention.  She likes attention:)  We are excited to see her on the 20th for a second celebration and more attention showered on the birthday girl(s)...she will be sharing the limelight with Aunt Christine, whose birthday will be on the 24th.  July is a great month!  Happy Birthday sweet baby.
TRY and keep on trying
until that which seems
becomes possible and that 
which seems only possible 
becomes HABIT and a 
real part of YOU!
--Dieter F. Uchtdorf--

What do we get when we set goals and then actually reach them?...A sense of personal accomplishment, peace, joy, strength, confidence, positivity, knowledge.  Really the list is endless.  Several months ago, I set a personal goal for myself, something that I've needed to do for a long time.  Today I was triumphant in reaching the goal I set.  It's a great feeling.  I pray to continue to grow and learn and gain strength as I journey on my path to becoming a better wife, mother, friend, daughter of day at a time:)
