Linking up with Love

 Tessa from
is having this sweet linky party, so I of course had to join in! :)

What am I loving right now?  
I am loving that God blesses me every morning that I wake up.  
That's one more day to be with my family.  I LOVE them.
and I love the things we do together.  
I am truly deeply in love with my husband.  
(He would not love me so much, however, if I posted his picture on here.)
 BUT, if I use a wedding picture, it's no biggie right? :)

(and this picture is so old---that is NOT Instagram HAHA)
I fall in love with him again and again.  I couldn't ask for a better father, husband and best friend.

I LOVE my bloggy friends.  My list could go on forever.  I have met so many wonderful people through the blogging community and I feel comfortable calling them friends.  
Look to my side bar at the blogs, I follow. You will find many great ideas, and people! 

I LOVE YOU...my followers (blog, facebook, email)!!!  You encorage me, inspire me, motivate me and keep me going.  Your comments fill my bucket more than you could ever know!

 I love TpT.  
It has saved me time when I'm in a pinch.  It has helped me grow as a teacher.

I love my job (on snowdays and in the summer)--okay, no seriously, I love my job.  I love that I get to be a role model for these students.  I love teaching reading.  In fact, I have some low kiddos (just now about K level) that need more sight word practice.  I made sight word books and activities for the first 25 Fry Words in hopes to provide them more practice.

Now, what's a post without another one of my main loves?
That my friends is a Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcake!  
I do not favor one cupcake over the other...a sweet is a sweet...no discrimination here. 
 This just happens to be a picture of the most recent one. :)

My list of loves could go on forever.  So I will sum it up with one more.... 
I LOVE that I'm so blessed with things in my life that I could continue my list of loves. 

**My post may have gone a little off from the original linky party, but I was on a roll reminding myself about all my positives! :)  Thank you for taking part.  :)

***Thank you Tessa for such a great linky party.  It made me realize just how lucky I am! :)

Link up friends!!  What are your loves?

  4. What a sweet post! It's definitely a reminder that we need to focus more on what God has given us than what we think he should have given us.
