Happy Birthday, Diana! Happy Father's Day Weekend!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful, loving, generous, smart, and awesome mother in law Diana!! I love you and I'm so blessed to have you in my life! Thank you for being you!


Let's not forget that this Sunday is Father's Day! I have a great dad who has always been a great example of the type of man I would want to marry. He's always worked so hard to provide for our family but he always made sure to make the time to spend with us too. Raising four kids couldn't have been easy, but I believe he did a wonderful job! I learned so much from him growing up!

Here's a few things that he taught me/us- off the top of my head:

He would ALWAYS correct our grammar! Even though we would roll our eyes at him and ignore it most of the time, I have to admit that I am glad he did it!

He taught me how to ride a bike.

By example, he showed what a true Christian is and how important it is to do what is right, even when it isn't the most popular or easy option.

I remember asking him to buy me things in the stores and he would say, "Money, money money!", which is hard to understand as a kid but now I am glad that I know how to save my money.

Thanks, dad!


I also happen to have a father in law who raised my husband right! He taught him to respect and cherish women (Michael STILL opens all doors for me). I know that Michael will be a great daddy because he had wonderful parents who showed him how to love unconditionally, among many other things!

I love both sets of my parents so much! Happy Birthday, Diana! Happy Fathers Day to my dad and James! Happy Fathers day to my Grandpa S and Grandpa R as well!! Love you!

I'm so glad that I have such a solid, loving family on both sides. My daughter will be very loved and well taken care of! :-)
