It's all worth it

Classes begin next Wednesday, which means I will pretty much have no free time for the next 3 months.

I've been working late every night this week in preparation for the craziness. For 3 nights in a row, I wasn't able to put Emerson to bed. Which was heartbreaking, since that only happened one other time (when we were in Vegas).

So last night I got to come home at a decent hour. I pulled up to the side of the house, and Jon was just pulling Emerson out of her stroller. They had gone on a walk while waiting for me.

I got out of the car, and all of a sudden she spotted me and went NUTS. Huge smile, mouth wide open, legs kicking, squeals of glee.

In all my life, with all of my loves, I have never had anyone that genuinely excited and exhilarated to see me. I had to snap a photo to capture the moment.

I'm sorry, but nothing compares to this.
