Joy doesn't even begin to cover it

In the spirit of blogging whenever I feel like it (thanks for all your sweet comments!), I thought I would let you know what's going on in my head this morning. Maybe I can contribute this to a lack of sleep, or just some random crazy emotions, but I was running errands this morning and was almost brought to tears by the sheer joy I feel about my life.

I was thinking how lucky Ben and I are to be surrounded by so many loving, amazing people in our lives. How we have so many generous, caring loved ones who are so much fun to be around I laugh just thinking about the good times we have.

I was thinking how it would be fun for us to renew our vows on our tenth anniversary - so of course I started thinking of things I could tell him (don't judge, I play scenarios in my head all the time). When we first got married I remember telling one of my friends I was so happy I felt like my heart could just burst at any moment, and I hoped this wasn't just a "newlywed" thing and that it would last forever. Well after three years of marriage it's more overwhelming every day with how much I love this man. So thinking about how much love would be there after ten years? Yeah, I got choked up.

I was thinking about all the struggles we've had this year and how we have this absolutely fabulous community around us (that includes you!) and how we couldn't have gotten through it without them.

I just got overwhelmed. By joy. With love. And then I started laughing because I always give my mom grief for crying over the smallest things, and I'm totally becoming just like her. (Which in itself is not bad - she's pretty freaking amazing).

I just felt like I needed to write about this. About the love and joy that I'm surrounded by and to say thanks because you're a part of it.

If you've never felt this way about something in your life I hope at some point you do - because it's incredible.

Aw, that is so sweet! I can't wait to meet Ben - you two clearly have something special. I love that you are even more in love now than you were on the day you were married. That is always what I wish for my friends on their wedding day.

I have had those moments where I am also so overwhelmed with love/appreciation for all the good things in my life. It's good to feel that way.

Aw Becky, you're the sweetest! I'm so glad that you're feeling so thoroughly happy, content and blessed- if I had my way you'd feel like that all the time :)

Being overwhelmed by joy and love is definitely a good thing!

Okay now I feel less dorky, because I do the same thing LOL! Like literally, I'll be driving somewhere and trying to come up with the perfect speech to give to him when we do our 10th anniversary vow renewal. SQUEE for cheeseballs like us!

I've had more and more of these overwhelming moments lately and it's nothing short of amazing. I know what you mean/how you feel and we are lucky to feel that way! I'm so glad that you and Ben have that something special. You totally deserve it.
