We were married in the Spring and have unintentionally made a tradition to get family photos done around the same time every year. I love looking back to see how we've changed each year together, as it seems so many big moments are happening in this season of our lives. With all the things going on around our anniversary this year, we never got around to it, so I had been dying for some photos of us. Other than one little shoot for our Christmas card last year, we've never had photos taken with Wesley so these are really special to me. I'm glad we did it at this age because they reflect him and our relationship with him perfectly We are so grateful to one of my best friends Topher Delancy for capturing such bliss and love between us.
Being the one that is always behind the camera documenting Wesley or my boys together, I rarely, if ever, get any photos of us. How we really are, just being together. Another reason they mean so much is because we used this photo to announce our second pregnancy. (Yes it's true!) Wesley had just nursed for the last time a couple days before and I was feeling all the feelings. To see what makes up my heart wrapped up in these pictures is irreplaceable and beauty beyond my wildest dreams.
With every glance at these photos, they take my breath away. I was a bit surprised at the emotion I felt when I looked through them last night for the first time, tears welling in my eyes. They are my family. They make me whole and bring me unexplainable joy. As a little girl I only dreamed of having this kind of love and life and when I see us together I'm humbled by how blessed I really am.
