What makes me happy? This list could go on and on.

Family. Hugs from my boys. Worship music. Bible Studies. Jesus. Fall. Brisk breezes. The Peony Project Community. Friends. My son's Pre-K school and teacher. Pumpkin Marshmallow Scentsy. Iced Coffee. New planners & new pens. New pajamas. College Football. Pumpkin patches. Reading books with Mason. Hummingbirds. Puppies. The Mountains. Traveling. When Mason talks about Jesus. Camping. Photographs. Books. Blogging. Snail mail. Walks with the family. Christmas. Christmas tree farms. Traditions. Planning trips. The things children say. Especially Mason. Love and Laughter. Diet Dr Pepper.

Sept 3rd's prompt: "When I grow up I want to be..." Answer as your 5-year-old self or as you are now.

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be three things; a teacher, an astronaut and a mother. Well, I'm not a teacher and I am clearly not an astronaut. I am the best of the three. A mother. It's everything I have ever dreamed of times a gazillion. It's the biggest blessing {along with being a wife} in the world. I love being a Mommy. I love the little I love You's. I love the learning and growing and teaching. I love all of the big milestones and the little in betweens. I love the bond I've developed with my little love. I love everything about it.

  1. Hey Crystal! I love this post!! I'm Leslyn, and I'm in your Blog Tribe! I'm so excited to follow along! :)

  2. Love this. I need to do this. I have been wanting to blog so bad and there is so much I need to post, so little details are not forgotten. Maybe I can sneak my way back into the blogosphere. LOL. It is just so crazy busy with everything going on. Gracious. But very greatful! Hope you're well. ♥

  3. Nothing makes me happier than my little man's hand on my hand. Melt my heart when he comes over and plops himself down on my lap and cuddles up or holds my hand. I hope that never ends!

  4. I love your "happy list" - these kind of post prompts are so fun, I'm not sure why I never try them! Also, I love how you wanted to be an astronaut - that's so cute! Being a mommy is certainly one of the most rewarding things in life - it's hard to compare it to any other "job". :)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
