These photos truly warm my heart. A baby is not in the cards for our little family but I am thankful he was able to fly home to meet the newest addition to our family. What a blessing this little man is for our whole family but more so for his parents. Congrats to my brother in law and sister in law in their first baby boy; Judah. #familyiseverything #nephews #blessings #backhomehome #husbandtrip #minnesota

The most important thing in the world is family and love.
I can’t tell you how much my little munchkin is developing. Today he took his first steps in th grass, only 10 months and he’s almost walking. I’m so so proud of him, he’s so so happy most of the time. He sat on and crawled on the grass all day and loved it so so much!

Still one of my favorite pics of all time! I would do anything for this little girl! Everything I do everyday is for her, her sister and their mom! Being surround by three women that are your entire world changes a man. I used to be a lazy gaming slacker, these days I work hard all day everyday to make sure my family is cared for! They are my inspiration to build my new me so I can be here for them for a long time to come! #familyiseverything #nevergiveup #neversurrender #buildthenewme
What a gorgeous day. We’ve been to the park and had a good play. Hopefully they’ll all sleep well tonight. Feeling grateful 😍

9 years... it’s so hard to believe this happened so long ago yet I still find my heart racing whenever I hear my phone call at a weird time. I still remember this day and the details like it was yesterday. I’ve never quite heard fear like I did when I got ahold of aunt bee, I’ve never felt rage like I did when people were complaining of the roads being blocked while they were trying to get home while I worried about my family surviving, I’ll never forget watching the news on the computer of my childhood home burn while I was thousands of miles away in Seattle. I’ll never forget the kindness and outpouring of support from St.clairsville and our friends and family. I’ll never forget the devastation of losing our family pets, of losing all of our pictures, artwork and special items and I’ll never forget the feeling of almost losing my Mom, Dad and sister. So today, like everyday I’m just thankful.
This window above the garage was my bedroom, the room that collapsed into the garage. Had I been living at home, I may not even be here today. So when you ask why my tattoo says “in life everything happens for a reason”? It’s because of this fire. It’s because my family survived it and together we made it through one of the most devastating events. #todayimthankful #familyiseverything #everythinghappensforareason
