Gratitude

Cuteness Overload!

March 21, 2014

I sooooo wish I would’ve been able to snap a picture yesterday but unfortunately for everyone, I couldn’t.  But, I have to tell you about the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen.

Elena rode a horse.

I know, right?  The visual is just too much to take.  My little 2.5 year old sweetheart was saddled up, helmet on, reigns in hands, clippity-clopping around a barn.  I almost cried.  She loved every second and was all smiles the whole time.

Elena started horse therapy yesterday.  It’s going to be great.  I will NOT miss the opportunity next time to snap a picture and video.  I can hardly wait.  

Buckle up Daddy, a pony may be in our future!

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
