Yikes, a busy weekend made me two days behind...so today I will cover days 2, 3, 4. Enjoy :)
Day 2-Meaning behind your blog name
Home is Where the Heart Is is a book, which was then made into a movie, about a girl who gave birth to a baby girl while living in a Walmart. Read it if you have time, it's heartwarming & kooky, watch the movie if you have less time, but the book is better. Since this blog was mostly started to document how I made my new house my 'home' I thought this title was fitting. The end.
Day 3-Your first love
No lie here folks, JTT was my first love. My bloggy friend Ty mentioned him in one of her previous posts & it jogged my memory of just how "in love" with him I really was. This is slightly humbling to admit, but I wrote him a love letter...pretty sure Mom found it. Broke my 8 year old heart. hehe ;)
Anywho, I can happily say that (as cheesy as it sounds) my hubby is truly my first real, REAL love. I don't think there is any other love that can compare to the love between husbands and wives. He just gets me. It's a different bond and love that comes with a lifelong commitment. No other love before can even compare....sounds wise for being married a whooping 5 weeks. HA!
Day 4-Your parents
Awesome. Honest. Loving. Fun. Selfless. Forgiving. Patient. Hilarious. Understanding. Helpful. Kind. God-fearing. Amazing. Generous. The. Best. Ever.
Dad is the funny guy, who always makes people laugh. He and I have a special bond...one that causes us to get up at 4:00am every Black Friday and go find some deals. He is my #1 fan and always supportive of decisions I make. He coached almost everything I did, and my siblings too...he really is an amazing man!
Momma is the kindest, most gentle human being I know. She is a best friend, a confidant, and always warms my heart. I know she will be honest with me, and encourage me to see the best in everything, and everyone. We did not get along like we do now, from the time I was 9 until about 18....I'm so thankful she was patient with me and never stopped loving me....even when I was a major brat bucket ;)
I really do have the best parents ever. They are amazing, and I am in awe of their ability to do it all, all the time. They raised five crazy kiddos, for crying out loud!! It is my prayer that BL & I will be able to parent like they did. I love you both so much!!!
