Eye Spy...Love

The thing I cherish most in my life is my family. My parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, nieces, nephews, in-laws. These are the 'loves' I have known my entire life (or a new additions that have enriched it) and wouldn't be the person I am today without them. Then there's the person I met and have grown to love, and yet still love more each day - Kym. Then there's the 'instant love' - the love we felt for Jett the minute we found out I was pregnant and is a love that will never waiver the entire time I breathe. It's such an indescribable and amazing feeling to be able to love someone unconditionally with whom you have just met.

Sure there's things in this life I say I love but I guess are really just 'great' - great food, great wine, great books, great movies. Not my true loves. Of course I love my friends too and they are super important to me, but whilst sometimes they can come and go, the people that always remain is family. And to these 'family' members (you know who you are) who are here in a heatbeat when I call and am having a bad day - a massive thank you!

Thanks to Cindy for hosting and picking this weeks theme - we all need a reminder sometimes of what truly makes us happy!
