Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I know I’ve already told you this too (broken record much?), but I just love the way this post turned out.

Such an amazing list of inspirational thoughts; I teared up a few times too! And gotta totally agree with Betty — the housecleaning can WAIT while you soak up all those incredible family moments!

And one more thing to add to this list … I think you’re also pretty lucky to have Estelle as your friend. This is a pretty special idea that she came up with; it warms my heart to know that the world is a better place because both of you are in it!
