a family of three.

here is our first set of family photos as a family of 3.
as I was driving to work this morning I began to think about life
and all the different twists and turns that you could potentially take. 
the decisions and choices you make guides the direction of your life and where you end up.
i fully believe that God has a hand in your life but i believe we have a freedom of choice.
there are many different directions your life could go depending on you and what you "choose".
that is especially true for me.
  i was raised in a military family and a divorced family.  constantly moving every few years.
after i graduated college that moving trend continued for me.
sometimes it is overwhelming to think about all the different places I could have ended up.
i have had so many amazing life experiences and also a few terrible ones.
made good decisions and  bad ones.
but each and every decision I have made has led me to this exact moment and this exact place.
all of the pain and all of my triumphs has led me here.  I am thankful.
thankful that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
thankful that my good decisions in life has left me with a level head and common sense.
thankful that my bad decisions and failures have led me here and taught me so much at the same time.
thankful for my family of three and the rest of my extended family.  each and every one of them.
thankful for strong friendships.  best friends that i hold dear to my heart and desired for years.
thankful for a loving man that i adore and takes care of me so well.
thankful for the knowledge of God and the peace he provides in my life.
