I feel so lucky to have some pretty incredible women in my life. Some I have known for what seems like a lifetime and others only a few years. I feel like each of them brings something special to my life and inspires me in different ways.

One of these incredible women is my friend Kim. I am so blessed to know such an amazing woman. I wish I was as 1/2 as generous and caring as she is. She inspires me to want to be a better person. When someone is in need, Kim doesn't think twice about helping out. She is a giver by nature. This week I have been especially inspired by her. When her sister was having a wedding dress emergency, Kim immediately made herself available to help Beki and generously purchased her a new wedding dress. When my car wouldn't start on Friday, she didn't hesitate to adjust her schedule to pick Noah up from school. She is an amazing person.

I am so thankful to know Kim. She makes me laugh every day and I am grateful to be able to call her my friend.

My Baby is 4

Wow. I cannot believe that it has been 4 years since we welcomed little Cooper into our family!

He is such a blessing. I love how he and Noah love to play together. They are the best of friends and I am so lucky to be their Mom. :)

Cooper spread his birthday celebration over several days! We had his party a few days before his actual birthday. He had his first "friend" party this year. The bounce house was a big success! Cooper thought it was so much fun to have his friends over.

We celebrated his actual birthday at the zoo. I am so greatful to have the flexibility in my job to take the day off to spend with him. There is nothing better than spending the whole day with my boys! They are such characters!
