That is what Matt calls them. He says they are everywhere in our home. But I know that he secretly loves them all.

My First Post

Hi to all. For those of you who do not know me my Name is Tara Buchanan. I married my love February 13, 2006. We have a beautiful son named Matthew who is two and a half. They are my world, they are my home, they are my LIFE. Matthew is my little angel. I would be lost without his sweet little spirit around. Seeing your first born for the very first time was one of the worlds greatest wonders. Being a mother is more than I ever imagined. Its challenging at times, but it is the most rewarding job I have ever had. I am very fortunate to be a stay at home mom, I never miss a moment of his life. It feels as if Matthew has always been a part of me. I cant imagine myself without him. He brings such happiness and joy into my life. He fills this humble little house we call home with such warmth and delight. He opened up a part of my heart that I never knew existed before. There is no greater love than the love I share with my husband and son. I absolutely adore my husband. He is such a wonderful father and husband and he saved my life. He has made me a better person and without him there would be a part of my soul missing. He has shown me more love in the three years we have been Married than most people will receive in a lifetime. He is my soulmate, my other half, my best friend, the absolute love of my life. Words will never even begin to explain the love I have for him. I am so proud to call him my husband. I am a lucky woman to have such an amazing person to share the rest of my life with. I cant wait to grow old along with this man. To see our children grow, and enjoy our old age together. My dream for us is to lead a happy healthy life. To share everyday with one another. I try to live completely in the moment with my family, life is too short to waste even a minute of time you may be able to spend with them. I know in my heart that God will not give us more than we can handle even though the world seems to be crashing down on us at times. If I can give some advice it would be to not sweat the small stuff, laugh often and enjoy life. Live simple and love deep. Matt has opened my eyes to life. He has taught me to not take anything for granted, that family is everything and to love with all of my heart.
