Happy Thursday friends! I can’t believe we’re already back here! These days things just seem to go by so fast! That is one reason why I started Thursday Thoughts – just to take a moment and remember everything that made our week so fun and fast-paced. So if you missed last weeks wrap-up head here first and then – well read on for some fun, maybe-something, maybe-nothing moments from our week!
One of the true blessings of my job is getting to be there for some of the most monumental, life-changing moments in my client lives. It’s even better when its our friends celebrating their life-changing moments! There are so many times in their lives that my dear clients invite me back to celebrate with them again, and I can’t thank them enough for these moments. Each and every couple I have holds a place near and dear in my heart and I truly feel I have the best clients around!
He had wanted to know yesterday during the ultrasound. He was so nervous. He had prayed. A lot. He wanted a son more than anything in the world. But none of that was up to him now. Family and friends gathered in the park. Everyone chatted excitedly, waiting for the moment we would all finally know.
We opened up the door, walked into a large empty room, and just smiled. Slowly we wandered from room to room, even though we had already been in the whole place. We carried little Porter out to the backyard. He was so small, just fifteen weeks, and the grass tickled his belly and sides as he wandered around looking for his new “spot”. We popped a bottle of cheap champagne open and clinked glasses. Holding each other in the middle of the new-to-us kitchen, everything that had just happened slowly started to sink in. It really happened, this wasn’t just a dream. We had the keys, and no one was going to tell us we couldn’t paint the walls.
We were officially homeowners!
We slid into the car a flash lit up the sky over the monument. I said a little prayer that the rain would hold out just long enough. As photographers we walk a fine line with mother nature. Clouds are our best friends, a little Beyonce wind here and there is a dream come true. But often, too much of a good thing spells disaster.
It looked so cold, so blustery, but it wasn’t wet out yet. There was hope.
Happy Thursday Friends!!
So I saw a post the other day that talked about how forever is made of lots of little “nows” So i really wanted to start remembering all of the little things that mean nothing, or everything but really make up our week. So, say hello to my Thursday Thoughts! It’s definitely one of my more personal post series, but I’m really excited for it! So hopefully you had some really great moments to remember that bring you a little closer to the weekend! Here we go!!
The sweet, salty air clung to their skin as they made their way down the beach. The sun hung low in sky, casting a golden glow across the sand. Hand in hand they walked as he did his best not to fidget with the trinket in his pocket.
I’m pretty sure snail mail is the best thing ever. In a time where one word texts and quick likes on Instagram are the norm, it really says something when someone fills the mailbox at the end of your drive.
And it’s even better when what’s waiting inside is the key to a box. And in the box, an engagement ring. Or a ring pop.
