15 Years Ago

Today I did a push-up (with a bonus) for my 44.  After each push-up I lifted an arm & leg – I alternated the lifts and counted reps by the number of push-ups.

The video is actually my final 4 reps – I was struggling a bit to keep my body level by this point.

Happy Birthday #15!

15 years ago we went from being a married couple to a family of 3.  Even though we had almost 9 months to prepare for his arrival, I had no idea what to expect and I was a nervous wreck!!!

In just a few minutes (hours actually) our lives changed forever in the very best way possible!!

I was beyond scared when we left the hospital but thankfully, Jordan was a very easy baby and kind to his newbie parents.  

Everyday was a new experience and every year has gotten better and better.

15 years ago my life was enriched in every way possible and every day I feel truly blessed that Jordan calls me MOM!!!

Happy Birthday, Jordan!!!
