For quite some time now, I've been debating on whether or not to start a blog. I'm not a guru on any specific topic-that's my husband. He's the wiz in all things sports, history, and science. I'm not a great writer. I just have so many random thoughts about my journey through life and such appreciation for all that I've been blessed with. I'd like for my daughter to someday look back and understand just how special she is to her father and me. We are expecting our second daughter in September, and we are so excited to meet her!

This morning, my husband asked our DD, "Mommy's really getting big," of course referring to my quickly expanding mid-section. Then he asked her, "Is Mommy getting bigger or is the baby getting bigger?" She quickly responded, "The baby!" But in all honesty, I have grown quite a bit these past 5 months too-not only putting on the necessary weight that goes with pregnancy (and the weekly gyros from Nick's and daily doses of ice cream) but also growing spiritually. I'm blessed to be part of such a miracle, and I thank the Lord every day for this healthy baby girl growing inside me and for my healthy, happy daughter that I get to watch grow up every day. DD is evolving into her own little person, and she is so full of love, curiosity, passion and hugs that I want to run right alongside her through the sprinklers and through her carefree world! She has certainly helped me to see the brighter side of things again and to relish every moment and every day, without dwelling on the past and worrying so much about what might tomorrow.

So, thank you to my daughter, for being that sunshine in my life every day and my husband, for loving me as I am and for putting up with my moodswings. I am so thankful for you! I feel myself growing stronger, more passionate, more appreciative every day because I've been so blessed to have such a wonderful family! This includes my fabulous sister, parents, and in-laws!
