"Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

Ten years ago today, I met my first beautiful baby boy. An entire decade! I will never forget the way I felt the moment he was born… looking at that perfect little face, the tiny little body that had yet to grow into its own skin, the full head of black hair.. oh that hair. He was truly the most amazing creature I’d ever seen. My life changed that day, and all the clichés I’d read about in books were about to come true. Nothing I’d done up to that point (and nothing I’ve done since) even held a candle to the importance of bringing up my children.

The past ten years with Spencer have been indescribable. He is growing into a boy that I not only (obviously) love with every ounce of my being, but also admire. Spencer loves life. He lives in the moment, he makes friends wherever he goes, he wears his heart on his sleeve. He is pure and kind and never afraid to be exactly who he is. A kid who loves his family and his friends above all else, and a kid who wants everyone around him to be as happy as he is.

Happy 10th birthday Spencer!! We love you a million, billion, zillion.
