To Carson With Love

I have often pondered the idea of starting a blog, but continued to talk myself out of it.  I have enough on my "To Do" list that I really don't need to be adding something of this sort.  Although I have come into this concept with a few hesitations, I am excited to share the happenings of our lives with our family and friends.  Ultimately, what lead me to creating this blog, was the idea that someday, today, will just be a memory instead of a reality.  Just as home videos from my childhood are entertaining to watch as an adult, it is my hope that someday, Carson and I can reminisce about our lives together, just the two of us.  

Our lives in the last few years have been nothing less than unpredictable.  As much as I try to plan ahead, I am learning to get better at living a day at a time.  I feel as though Carson and his vivacious personality is what has inspired me to be more appreciative of the simplest, most meaningful things in life.

I cannot promise that this blog will be error free or entertaining, but the intended audience is more interested in being read to than reading at this point.  I hope that by sharing everything that I am learning from an amazing little boy, you will find something that is exciting, inspiring, or even lovable.  So here it goes...

I hope that someday we will be able to look back at this adventure and see all that we have taught each other.  Your passionate personality is inspiring and your smile is uplifting.  I love you for the little boy that you are and will love you for the man you'll eventually become.  Never let anything get in the way of your dreams.  It is what it is.  Make the most of it.  Thank you for being mine.
With love,
