Happy Valentines Day


Whilst painting our basement this past week, I got to thinking about all the women in my life. Hah...that probably sounds funny but obviously not in the "player" sense but the women who surround me on a day-to-day basis.

Since I didn't have time to send all of you a card, I decided to paint an abbreviated Happy Valentines Day message on our basement wall. FYI, it reads "HPY VDAY" because scribing with a 12" roller ain't easy.

- To my sweet and precious Ashley Jane, you are the center of my world. Your little rosy cheeks, your curly locks and your bright smile warm my heart in the deepest sense. You have no idea how it makes me feel when you run into my arms screaming "daddy!" after work.

- To my beautiful and strong bride, you perform the work of 3 women. I don't know how you do it on such little sleep but you are amazing. Our kids are blessed to have a mother like you and it already shows. Thanks for being awesome.

- To my cautious and protective mother, thanks for instilling a sense of hard work and moral values into my upbringing. You've always been there for me/us when in need and words will never begin to express how much you mean to me.

- To my always upbeat grandma, thanks for all the amazing memories from my past. You taught me how to spell the months, especially Fe-BRUH-ary, and how to enjoy the most spicy things on a menu.

- To my hard working mother-in-law, thanks for letting us destroy your house while we (and you!) work on our new house. You've always been so giving and helpful and I swear you never sleep but your help and support is unconditional and always encouraging.

- To my effervescent sister-in-law, you have a heart that is bigger then any I've seen. Your care and concern for Ashley goes to show what an amazing momma you're going to be.

And to everyone else, Happy Valentines Day!
