Happy Birthday Material Girls!!!

Its our 3rd birthday tomorrow! As I reflect on my journey over the past 3 years I am overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude and awe about the amazing people I have met and befriended. ( I'll try not to get to sappy) You guys are the best!! I am so inspired and wowed by all of your creativity and your willingness to share it with me. I am so blessed!! I don't mention my family much but I also want to tell them "Thanks for making my dream come true, I couldn't have done it without your love and support" ( I really do have the greatest husband in the world, my kids are pretty awesome too)I am usually not this cheesy, but I want you to know that I am so thankful for all of you and couldn't have done it without you!! (and for all of you who said I couldn't do it, Watch out! I'm no where near the end~the best is yet to come!!!!!)
