a very, very happy nine year anniversary today to my very, very better half. 
just for the record, i knew you were my husband before our first date.
i have never doubted it since, that fact that we should be together.

i do, i do, i do. 
a million times more. 


this one is always, always among friends.

wishing you the happiest of new years, filled with joy and love and laughter. xoxo the hemsworths





2 days after Christmas, Tess turned four. Grandma and Grandpa came, we went and saw Frozen, dinner at Cafe Hollander (her pick), presents, and rainbow cake and chocolate ice cream, that she
picked, but then decided she didn't actually like. Without trying it. She told me at one point that she
was having a "beautiful birthday." 

Beautiful kid.
