Today is No D Day which is a great idea started by the D ninja himself, George. And on that note, here is my No D Day post.
Joe and I do not have children and if you know me, you know that is not at all a light subject to me. But there are two little people in my life that mean just as much to me as my own children would. There are two initials tattooed on my right middle finger – JK. That is for them. My niece and nephew. The children who were born into this world by my twin sister and her husband. And I am blessed to be their aunt and godmother. They bring such joy to my life and are one of the biggest treasures of my world. Maybe I feel a deeper bond with them because I don’t have a child of my own. But whatever the reason, I would do anything for these two. J and K, Auntie Stacey loves you 🙂

I feel the same way about my niece and nephews. It is such a fun honor being an aunt!
Proud aunts of the world, unite 🙂
Had me crying with this one. 😦 But you mean the world to them and to me & I thank God every day for you. xoxoxo
The best tears are the unexpected ones. That was a beautiful post Stacey and you are an awesome aunt. 🙂
This is absolutely beautiful. I didn’t grow up around family…I don’t have any special bonds with the people outside of my core circle. As a result, my children really don’t have anyone outside of my husband and me. Sometimes I see other children with doting aunts, uncles, and grandparents and feel sad that my children don’t get to experience those bonds. It’s just us, and while it’s not a “bad” life, I just know it could be so much richer if we had family who cared about each other the way you care for these beautiful kids.
God bless you for loving so deeply.
They get cuter and cuter. They are as lucky to havee you as you are to have them. I had to adopt nieces and nephews but I love them fiercly all the same.
Aww I bet you are the world’s greatest aunt! They are cute!!!
They are so adorable – just like their awesome aunt!! 🙂
