Four years ago something happened that changed my life.  
It was emotional.
It was painful.
It was downright spectacular.
Most importantly, what happened makes me exceedingly grateful for my blessings and serves as a reminder that I have much to be thankful for.
Four years ago tomorrow, these healthy, happy, fun loving, melt-my-heart, hilarious, miracle boys were born.
I’ve been able to watch with wonder as they went from this:
To this:
To this:
Life IS sweet.  

Happy Birthday, my babies.
