This month was busy. I tried doing photos on July 1, but it didn’t work. So instead, here are some photos from our July. Also, I wrote some words that I put at the bottom of post if you are so inclined.
“There is a tiny human soul living in our house and my heart that didn’t used to be here. About 3 years ago this month we had just found out that our lives would forever change, 4 years ago we were a young married couple photographing Mid-Western weddings and enjoying a hot summer. Now. He’s here now, he is forever here in our hearts, and for (Lord-willing) 16 or so more years, in our home. His pitter patter has christened our home with the joy of childhood. Shrieks of joy – and lets be honest, frustration – fill our walls. We pretend to be lions and dine on cuisine masterfully prepared on a wood and plastic kitchen in our living room. Life is so different. Where we we used to put off projects because of laziness, or a desire to do something else, we now put off because of exhaustion (plus a little bit of laziness). I have learned the immense bliss that is being cheek to cheek with one of the worlds softest, squishiest, and most wonderful faces. I’ve learned that once you have a sleeping toddler next to you, it is near impossible to peel yourself out of bed and go downstairs and work. This life is a gift. Dave and I, we will have a family that will house and hold and nurture and love at least two childhoods…a true honor, our highest calling.”
