Happy Valentine's Day!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. I woke up this morning to my beautiful flowers from the other day and just felt so happy and blessed. This day isn't just one to recognize the romantic love in your life, but has given me a chance to reflect on all the people I love. I have the most amazing family. I love each one of my brothers so much and count them as some of the finest people I know. I have a beautiful and wise sister in law that I adore. She also bore the two sweetest little kids you'll ever meet. I love being their aunt and I think they like me a little too! I have another joining our family in May that is just a perfect fit! My parents are the best. They are the greatest teachers of love and I am so grateful for their wise lessons over the years. I am also blessed with in-laws, sister and brother in laws and a niece and a new little nephew. I can't imagine my life without any one of them. These are wonderful people who have enriched my life, whom I also love dearly. They all have welcomed me into their family and I feel blessed to be apart of their lives.
I also love my friends. I have been blessed with some of the best friends. I have my lifers, as I call them, who I have grown up with, shared every joy, tear, and laugh with. What a gift! I have met others along the way that I will cherish forever and am also so grateful for!
So, on this Valentine's Day, I want all those I love to know that I am thinking of you! I cherish each one of you so much. I am a lucky girl to know you!
