Marrying Blake meant that not only did I get to look forward to the rest of my life with my best friend, but that I could also add a whole new group of people to my family. I gained a set of in-law parents who, while they are nothing like my parents, are perfect in-law parents for me. I'm so grateful to them for raising Blake to be the perfect person for me. I also gained a brother-in-law and sister-in-law who inspire me and make me proud. I look forward to growing closer to all of my in-laws in coming years and know that their love and support will be invaluable as we add one more to the kids table. I just know that our parents and siblings are going to be the best grandparents and aunt and uncles to our kids - we and Sprout are so lucky.
