I am still amazed by the fact that it only takes a simple smile or a kiss to bring me back to when Allison and I first met. After 15 years of marriage and a total of 18 years together, it is easy for one to forget what it was like all those years ago. But we like to keep those memories alive. We still reminisce about what we did before having kids. What did we do with all our free time? Life was so simplistic back then. But what we realize is that our lives now are much more full of love and purpose than we ever thought possible.
This year has been especially crazy. Just living life, working and Hailey and Livy’s daily schedule (especially all Livy’s doctor’s appointments and therapy sessions) can be hectic. But we have also been running our Livy’s Hope For A Cure campaign along with our regular Livy’s Hope work. Not to mention, our house has been undergoing renovations to make it more handicap accessible. Allison has often said that if we don’t kill each other by the time this is all done, it will be a miracle. As we are finding out, it takes an amazing commitment to run a six month fundraising campaign.
