Gratitude

Martha’s Vineyard

June 17, 2013

You may remember me blogging about a Ronald McDonald House fundraiser back in November.  During a silent auction, we bid on a week’s stay at a house on Martha’s Vineyard.  This past week we traveled to the East Coast for a few days with our friends the Ertels, the DeMoss’, Kyle and my brother and sister in-law!

We had so much fun!  Our house was on 22 acres in the middle of the island.  It was a perfect setup.  We enjoyed bonfires, bocce ball and whiffle ball games.  During the days we explored each of the towns on the island, definitely getting our fill of crab cakes, lobstah rolls and chowdah!

It was a great trip with great friends!

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.
