Every night before our little boy goes to bed he asks us to sing songs. You know how kids are with their bedtime routine, if you miss something, they will not go to sleep until you do it. The song he always asks us to sing to him is “Edelweiss” from The Sound of Music.
As we were brainstorming about what to name the blog, we started thinking about when our happiest moments occur. I don’t know about you, but there is just something about looking at a sleeping child that makes your heart swoon. It’s like all of the terrible two-year-old things they did during the day are forgiven as you watch them sleep. So, one of the happiest moments that we get to experience every night, is when our little boy asks us to sing “Edelweiss” as he falls asleep.
This blog is meant to help spread happy, or as we like to think of it, edelweiss. We are an average couple, going through this crazy thing called life. We find it therapeutic to put our experiences, conversations, thoughts and impressions, into writing, to not only help us, but to maybe help someone else find their own edelweiss.
So please, join us on this journey through writing as we try to find out what that is, and become a stronger couple, parent, or individual in the process. Let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you.
