Family = HUGE Blessings!

So, I've been wanting to dedicate a post to our families for a while now and I'm so glad I have some recent pictures to share as I do that! God has blessed David and I in the best way possible, through having amazing God fearing parents and supportive and loving siblings. I just wanted to give a shout out to the ones we hold so dear and that will help carry us through this difficult and joyous season of life.
The Moselle's +Nathan :)
Reasons why I love you from left to right...

David: You are so much more than I ever imagined and prayed for in a husband. You support me through your life as you work for our family, as you make light of my silly anxieties, as you help turn my crying into laughing! You are so amazing and I am blessed beyond words to call you mine!

Baby Blom: I can't wait to meet you! God has really has taught me so much about this amazing miracle of life through you! I'm praying for our future relationship to be one of trust, love and friendship. You have already brought me so much joy, thank you.

Aaron: Brother, you are a true friend. I am so thankful for your tender thoughtfulness and loving heart. You have been such a support to me through the years, especially when I've felt really depressed I feel like you were there if I needed/wanted someone to confide in. I admire your hard work and determination and know that God will bless that when you find that job you have been looking for for so long.

Mom: You are an amazing example to me and have shown me so many ways in which I want to be like you. Your serving attitude and selfless nature really challenges me and humbles me. I am thankful for your laughter and your boldness in relationships. Your love for other women inspires me to love more. I respect you and love you so much, I'm so grateful for a wonderful, Godly & generous mom.

Dad: You have been such a leader in our home and I so much appreciate the Christlike example you have always set for our family. You welcome any and all of my friends into your house and I know you have prayed for them too! I have learned to try and let things go by your lighthearted attitude and your fly by the seat of your pantsness :) I love and respect you Dad and I feel the same from you which not all daughters can say. I pray our kids find as much companionship in their father as I have with you.

Kim: You are so wonderful. I hope that I can always honor and respect your individuality. I love that you and I are so different and can find strength through each other's great qualities. You are so dedicated and genuine and soft/tenderhearted. I am so glad God blessed me with a sister that can challenge and teach me things just by you being you! Thank you for your support through all my chaos.

Nathan (Kim's boyfriend :): I am so glad for the times you have been with us! It's been wonderful getting to know the gentleness about you. It's been fun too to see your interest in Kim and for your loves in life (soccer, Kim, film). Your genuineness sticks out to me so much and I truly appreciate the way you ask questions and your desire to know us more. I am excited to get to you know better as time goes on.

Wrigley (not pictured): God has blessed me with the gift of you! I am so thankful for your friendship and the fun times we have together :) Hehe.

The Blomgren's + Colleen... almost a Blomgren!
Reasons why I love you from left to right...

David: You really bring out the best in me and make me a better women. I love the way you pursue your dreams and include me in the process. I love that you encourage me to pursue mine and truly desire for me to be joyful in what I do. Thank you for giving me the space and freedom to test out different things in life and find out what gifts I've been given... I'm still working on that :) I love you!!

Colleen: I pretty much love everything I know about you! I have cherished our talks and getting to know you better. I admire your love for people and the way you make everyone feel like they are the only one in the room. You have this amazing genuine love for others and it is so evident to me and I enjoy being with you so much! I'm so glad you and Steve found each other and that I get to see you at all the future Blomgren events (and more I hope)!

Steve: Oh Steve, You're such a mystery! But, I've known you for almost 8 years so I can see through some of that goofiness by now. I am thankful for your zest in life and that you can make us all laugh. I am so thankful for the strange and wonderful bond you and David have as brothers. And more than that I am so thankful for the way you love people. Your tenderness and awareness of how others are is truly impressive. It's so awesome that you and Colleen both are so supportive and loving of others - no wonder you go so well together!

Chuck: What a wonderful example David has had growing up in your house. Your generosity and Godly humility in success is such a wonderful example to us. I respect you whole heartily as you lead your family in your Swedish ways :) It's obvious that you love and respect Karen and all your kids by the way you have treated me and supported both David and me in our life endeavors thus far. I am so thankful that I feel comfortable to call you when I have a need or my grill is on fire in the back yard! Thank you for being there for us.

Karen: You too have been such an amazing support for both David and I and we love you so much. Thank you for opening up your home to us at any time and willingly sacrificing time and money for your children. Your generosity to the broken kids and families in Rockford has been a shining example to us about sacrifice and love for the lost. I am so thankful for a mother-in-law like you that I can trust and feel safe with. Thank you for welcoming me into your life as another daughter and assuring me I'm always loved.

Kristin: It's so wonderful having two sisters. I'm so glad to have you in my life and in the last year especially I'm thankful that our friendship has had the chance to grow. I respect the way you are so steady and on top of things that you need to get done and accomplish. I see that Blomgren drive in you and it's inspiring. I'm glad that I have another friend in the family I can confide in and talk about the details of life. Thanks for being so thoughtful and really supporting me through some tough times. We enjoy being with you and Keith so much.

Keith: You and I are supposedly so much alike, how can we not love and appreciate each other?! You too have really asked me some great questions and made the effort in getting to know me better through the years. I like your style and I value the conversations we have had one on one. You are just so much fun to be around and I never feel stressed hanging out with you or telling you how I really feel! Thank you for liking me for who I am.
