Where to begin to describe just how awesome this little family is? Jamie and I were talking the other night, discussing some challenges we were facing, and he said something that really made me stop and think. He said (I’m paraphrasing), “Things aren’t going to be perfect. We didn’t have the greatest example. Both our parents are divorced. So we are left to figure things out on our own.” We’ve had some awesome non-family examples to follow to build a strong family, and we are super-duper grateful for them. But the family that you grow up in is the one that shapes your “scripts” of how things should be. So, sure, Jamie and I aren’t perfect, we aren’t perfect parents, and we are still figuring out this marriage thing… but in spite of the challenges we’ve had to overcome, our family is pretty great. There’s always room for improvement (usually mostly on my end of things!!), but I wouldn’t change anything about Jamie, our relationship, our daughter, or our life. Its just right. The saying is true, there’s no place like home.
