What Does The Number 1 Mean To You?

Happy 1st of November. 
This year November 1st dates 11/1/11. How cool is that?
So it got me thinking, what does the number one mean to me?

For some it means:

#1 Sports Fan
#1 Athlete
#1 Musician
#1 ....etc.

To me, I just want to be
 #1 Mom & Wife.

Family is my #1 priority.

The number 1 to me also means new beginnings. 
In this case we have a chance to start over the first of every month. We don't have to wait until New Year's Day to resolve to be better. We can start now.

This November I will be a mom for the 1st time. I am so excited!

 My hubby and I celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary.

Our daughter will experience her 1st Christmas shortly after she is born.

Then it will be 1/1/12.... the New Year.... the first year I will experience without my father. I am sad he is gone, but when he was here he was the #1 Dad, and always will be in my heart.

What does #1 mean to you?



  1. I am sorry about your Dad. I know it has to be hard especially around this time of year. I know it would be for me to.*Hugs* But the good part of this is that you are a part of your dad and you are also passing that on to your daughter to. Our children are the small pieces of ourselves we leave behind. So in some way he is still here living through you and Avani.

  2. @Neonica- Thank you! I know that my Dad would have been happy to meet Baby A, but we will tell her about him as she grows up :)

  3. this was especially interesting to me :)
    i always like reading whats going through that head of yours! youve got alot happening so soon, and most good. im sorry 2012 will not include your daddy. itll be rough, but youve got baby A to help you out with that. maybe, if you havent already done so, you can dedicate a page in her baby book to your daddy!! just an idea :D

    now, to me, number 1 can mean alot of things as well. and like yourself family is my number 1 priority. i aspire to be the best mom, and girlfriend, sister, daughter, and friend, etc.

    i like your outlook as how the 1st, can also mean new beginnings. i agree! thanks for sharing this!

  4. @chelle- I am really glad you liked the post! I think that's a really cool idea. :) Life is all about new beginnings, part of how I named my blog "ReInventing Lolli"....hmmmm maybe I will turn that into a blog post!
