Valentines Day + Oscar is 10

After a really sad and dark time in my life, I hoped one day I would be loved and that Billy and I would be okay.. When you lose people you love days are actually dark, it seems like the sun never shines..wired I know, but so true.
Valentine's day when your single especially when you have a child can be pretty miserable.... I remember feeling lonely and lost and pretty sorry for myself..
Maybe because I knew half the free world was being gifted chocolates.. (I'm not even joking)

I had vowed I would never celebrate V'Day again, after all, we should love each other every day.. blah blah blah.... then my path led me to meet MV

a year and a half later

So appropriately on Valentine’s Day, the sweetest of souls Oscar Louie was born, the first thing I noticed about him was his white blonde hair, my own little blob of sunshine!!

1st Birthday

Isnt he like sunshine!!??

For 10 years we have been blessed with him, his dimples his skinny legs his smile his cheeky smile . 10 years of Animals, Bush exploration, Crocodile Hunter, Bondi beach talk, Lizards, Beetles, Bird watching, Football, Cricket, Brilliant taste in music, guitar playing muso, amazing drawings, contagious laughter, 10 whole years..

and still every morning when he wakes up it truly is like the sun has come out to shine... and I wont ever forget what he brought into our lives.

He warms me to the core he mended my heart – Happy 10th Birthday beautiful young man.

May your day today be warmed with the joy of St. Valentine, or Cupids arrow whatever your flavor.

But know you are loved, if one creature in the world loves you no matter how great or small you are loved.
Im throwing love your way to.
Love is BIG, no matter how small.

And that's pretty awesome when you think about it.
