I still remember this day as if it was yesterday. My husband and I had just spent our first day of our honeymoon together as husband and wife. As we sat on the deck, in Montego Bay, Jamaica, the sun slowly set around us. I hope he always knows how much I love him. From the moment we met, until today, my love for him has only continued to grow. I love you, suge!

I think this is one of the epitomes of true love - loving someone and caring for them even when things are rough, even when it isn't what you expected, even when the road looks all uphill. Standing by their side and continuing to love them shows true beauty.

People have always told me that I was meant to be a teacher. I have always wanted to be in a classroom, inspire children, and changes lives. I, however, never thought that my best lessons wouldn't be ones that I would teach, but ones that I would learn. I never thought that my favorite teacher would be 8lbs 5oz and carry my heart around with her wherever she went. This first year with my Adrianna is over and I'm shocked at the time that has gone by. Since June 12th, 2008, I've learned so much as a mother, as a wife, and as a woman. I've learned that I'll make mistakes and that I'll never be perfect. I've learned that Adrianna will fall – she will bump her head, she will scrape her knee, and my heart will break every time she cries. I also learned that its completely okay to let her be a child and that these situations come with the territory. I've learned that no matter how confident I am as a woman and a wife, I will still question every single decision I make as a mother. Every decision I make no longer affects only me – there is an innocent child who needs me to make responsible, healthy decisions for her as well. In this past year, I've learned that the most joyful sound on this earth is the laughter of my child.. I've learned that no matter how hard my day at work was, the smile I receive when I get home makes it all worth it. Being unhappy is not an option when you have a smiling, laughing baby girl in your arms. I've learned that I will never love someone the same way that I love my child. I will do anything and everything possible to keep her safe in this world. I will step-on-toes, make my own path, and do things that I feel is best in order to keep my daughter happy and healthy regardless of how others may feel. I've learned that having a child fall asleep in your arms is the most peaceful feeling in the world. I've learned that every single milestone your child hits will make you feel more pride than you've ever felt. I've also learned that when your child hits those milestones, it will break your heart because it means they are one step closer to being independent. In this past year, I've fallen in love with my husband all over again. Watching him tenderly love her with his entire being has shown me that he was born to wear the title of “Daddy.” I've learned that we are now connected in a way that only parents can be – our blood, our bodies are combined for eternity into the precious being that is our daughter. No matter what the future may hold, our hearts will always be beating inside the chest of our beautiful Adrianna. I've also realized that everyone is a perfect parent until they have children. We were going to do everything right – not make any mistakes and always do things the “correct” way. We slowly learned what is “right” for us may not be okay for someone else. Since we had Adrianna, I've apologized to my parents so many times for all of the sacrifices they made, which I never truly understood until I, myself, became a parent. Last, but not least, I've learned that being a mother isn't easy, but it is the most amazing feeling in the world to look at your child and know that you are her mother; you have created a piece of yourself to be left behind in this world. You have, essentially, created the future, and in itself, that is a miracle.

I used to think I knew what love was... I loved my family..my wonderful husband...my friends... Yet, I never truly understood what unconditional love was until June 12th, 2008 - the day that I met my daughter...the love of my life. The moment I saw her, love made sense. I hope, as she grows, as she slowly gains her own independence and learns about life, that she never questions how much I love her. I pray that she always knows that there is someone on this earth that believes she is perfect in any way. No matter what she does, no matter where she goes, no matter who she becomes - I will always love her with ever ounce of my being. In 19 months, she has taught me so many things. Most of all, though, she taught me how to truly love.
