2 years

This video is my birthday card to our daughter who just turned two yesterday. It’s my love letter to my husband with whom I celebrated four years of marriage yesterday as well. It’s the result of two years of playing with Photobooth on my computer and watching our daughter grow from a cute and chubby little infant to a feisty and beautiful toddler. It’s all I need to see to remember how good we have it.

The past two years have been by far the hardest years of my life. Parenting is hard. But they’ve also been the most beautiful, exciting, and rewarding years our family has experienced together. They’ve lasted both an eternity (what was life even like before we had her? Who can remember?) and they’ve passed in a heartbeat (she’s TWO already??).

Soon our family will grow again to include one more member and our stories will change and unfold in new ways to include this other little person. I can’t wait to see what the next two years will bring and I’m so grateful for the past two that have taught me so much about love, forgiveness, patience, humility, understanding, and comfort. These have been the best two years of my life, for sure.

      I have received a sigend for’ letter today from a company called Avon Client Services Limited run by from Trinity Place, Midland Drive, Sutton Coldfield B72 1TX. Tel: 07512048859, offering a320,195 for my RCI Points. Well over the top!! The letter came from the Administration Manager, James Ashworth. Anybody else heard from them? Have Googled them, no joy as a completions company. Have been scammed once and managed to get all my money back from the bank. Not likely to do this again without a thorough check on the company and never going to give out a fee first!

      Hi my husband has been cnteactod by greenges on tuesday and I also had 3 phone calls off excalibur one after another on Monday We managed to claim the money paid to excalibur through the credit card company.I don’t know whether to trust them or not.Timeshare recommend using your own solicitor to claim monies originally paid.

    Happy Birthday to Coco, and happy anniversary to you two! Love the video – what a great idea to have that whole series of pictures, and I love how there’s a flip-book quality to them all together.

    Forgive me if I’ve already mentioned this to you, but your last paragraph reminded me of the Frances England song, “Family Tree.” though I warn you,I heard it during my second pregnancy and had to pull over the car, I was crying so much, happy tears, but just his amazing awe of how the new baby would bring out the best in the already amazing older sibling.
