Today I feel extremely blessed. I belong to the biggest most beautiful group of family and friends. All of whom love Zach, Averie and I so much. Around 4:00 pm MT yesterday the text messages started coming in as well as the pictures and videos. Everyone was letting off balloons for our little girl. On the car ride home from letting off our balloons I just started to cry. I was so moved not just because of everyone’s commitment to participate but because of all the love I felt. None of our family and friends were able to meet Averie but they loved her just the same. They love her because she is a part of us. I understood that everyone probably had places to be or things to do but they took time out of their day for us. In 3 different time zones we all came together at that special time. I want to take this time to thank everyone! I honestly do not have the words for how I feel other then that I feel so blessed that Zach and I have so much support and love. There is no way that we could have made it through these last 8 months without any of them. Each has touched our lives unlike any other.
Today is my Mom and Dad’s anniversary. They have been married for 56 years. I am so proud to belong to this family and the legacy they have created. I am blessed to have some of the most amazing friends of which I consider family. I am thankful that when I married Zach I inherited another huge group of amazing family and friends. I am beyond blessed.
