Between the three boys, I got 2 pairs of pajamas, 2 character hoodies, 3 short sleeved shirts and 9 long sleeved shirts for just under $75!
I also love that my kids were just as excited about my purchases as I was. Elizabeth exclaimed, "Wow!!! You didn't even hit $100! That's impressive for Target."
Indeed it is!

I love these friends.
I love the memories that we have with them for the past 17 years.
I love that they've shared some of the best moments in life with us.
I love the way they've walked through fire with us.
I love that our kids have friendships with each other.
I love that we're all missing watching the Superbowl or chick flicks with each other right now.
I love that we get to see them next month!!!

I love hearing the sound of my kids playing together. Goodness knows there are moments when laughter turns to frustration and anger. But more often than not, the kids are friends and not enemies. More often than not, there's laughter and not tears. More often than not, I'm enjoying what I hear.
These moments of pure joy are fleeting, I've been a parent long enough to realise that. And from my understanding, one of these days my home will be quiet. Though there are times when I b wish for some quiet, I'm deeply thankful for the sweet sounds in the backyard.

I love waking up to the smell of coffee.
And on mornings when I wake up and haven't slept well, or wake up feeling overwhelmed by the day before me, I especially love waking up to the smell of coffee that I didn't have to make!
Today was extra special because Curtis had cold coffee to take to work and didn't need to make a fresh pot. But he did. Because he loves me. And he knew I had a busy day and hadn't slept well. I so appreciate and love those daily acts of service and love!
