Happy Mother's Day Beautiful

Happy Mother’s Day Beautiful

Choose Wisely

Hello blogger world... This is Kate's husband. Today is my wife's first Mother's Day and to me it is one of the most important days of the year... Today I celebrate the wisest decision of my life.

I chose the heading "choose wisely" from one of my and my wife's favorite people to listen to while traveling this great country of ours (Dr. Laura). In short, it means when choosing someone to spend a life with and start a family it is important to be very selective of whom you choose. It is in fact, the single most important decision you will ever make. I couldn't have married a more perfect woman to help raise a family with.


To my beautiful wife/forever girlfriend and mother to our son

In one word you are AMAZING! I couldn't have chosen a better wife, and more importantly, mother to our child. Our son is happy, healthy, bright, energetic and all around perfect. This is large part because of you. You're not only a full time mom, but you also work to bring home the bacon. The work you do inside and outside the home is truly remarkable and we are all so blessed to have you in our lives.  

Watching the interaction between you and our son is one of my favorite things in the world. Seeing you dance, laugh, play, teach, feed, hold and tuck him to sleep are true blessings. My heart is so full because you and the family we have created. There is nothing I love more then walking in the door from work to see you, Cali and our son playing in the living room. Coming home each day to the three of you is the most wonderful/beautiful thing in the world. 

From the very beginning when we first met in San Diego and fast forward to today, you have been nothing short of amazing. You're not only so incredibly beautiful (even in the mornings :-) but you are also so smart, fun, loving, caring, honest (sometimes too honest ;) and I could go on forever. You have a way of always finding the positive in every situation. Your positivity and belief in God's plan has made me a more positive person and I can never thank you enough for that. There are many people who think you were born under a lucky star. I believe that it is the ability to find the bright side of every situation combined with your positivity that has created all of your wonderful blessings. So it is because of you that we are also so blessed. 

Before I met you my world was very small. Because of you my world has grown tremendously. This is not just because of our many years of traveling the country and world together, but in fact because I was able to see the world as you saw it. It is because of you I find beauty in the open road traveling down a two lane highway in the middle of Kansas. It is because of you I can see the beauty of a single tree in the middle of a grassy field. Because of you, I find beauty in places and in things that I would have never looked twice at before. And it is because of you, our son will grow up to find the beauty in all that life has to offer.

Trace is one lucky kid to be able to call you mom. He will grow up to be an incredible man one day largely in part because of you. Your love and guidance throughout the course of his life will no doubtably lead him to a happy and fulfilled life. You're undoubtably the best mom in the world to our son and he is extremely blessed.

I know saying thank you is kind of weird to your wife, but seriously I can't thank you enough for all you have done for us and will continue to do for our family. You are truly the wisest decision I have ever made in my life. These past 6.5 years have been an incredible journey together - 40+ states, 30+ sporting stadiums/events, a dozen countries, cruises, vacations, breathtaking views, yummy meals, drives across country, events, beaches, mountains, building a house and most importantly starting a family. You're my co-worker, friend, wife and mother to our child. You're my rock and the glue that keeps our family going. You are truly nothing short of AMAZING!!!
