Love of my Life

I love lilacs and avocados.
Ukeleles and fireworks,
Woody Allen,
and walking in the snow.

I love Lucy, and pumpernickel bread.
The Statue of Liberty and standing ovations,
and falling into bed. 

But you are the love of my life.
From the moment I first saw you,
the second that you were born,
I knew that you were the love of my life.

Quite simply,
the love of my life.

--Carly Simon

It never fails that I cry every time I hear that song.
my goodness,
how very true it is.
Hudson IS, quite simply, the love of my life.

What a handsome young man you have right there!

Carly Simon always without fail brings me back to my childhood, spending summers on Nantucket with the house filled with the sounds of her and James Taylor <3

Aww you are a sweet momma. Isn't it cool knowing at some point in his life he'll probably get curious about you blog and he'll get to read about how you raised him? Give me goosebumps everytime I think about it with my family =)
