Just Some Sweet Photos

Happy Monday, friends!

Before I say anything, I have to take a minute to remember the terrible day that was September 11th 16 years ago. As Americans, there are few events that have rocked us like this one did, and although I am brought to tears every year we take the time to reflect, I am also incredibly inspired by the way we came together as one. Hate will never win. It's been a tumultuous few years in the US, fueled by division, and it's days like these we remember, we really are just Americans at the end of the day. I hope you hug your family extra tight today.

I so badly wanted to share these photos my friend Jessica Robinson took of our family a few weeks ago. She never ceases to capture us in a way that makes me want to frame every last photo! I love how she always shares some of the outtakes...crying kids, bows over the face, my son eating his chocolate chips that we use to bribe him to sit still...it's such real life. :)

Poor grumpy Isla Jane! hahaha. This is a much more accurate photo of how family pictures usually go ;)

This is going to sound so cheesy, and it is, but almost daily I look at these kids and my husband who I love so completely and I just can't even belief this life is mine. Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a wife and a mother. I used to put my "wedding mix" cd on in my childhood bedroom and practice walking down the aisle. I would write letters to my future husband and my future kids, and I spent hours and hours dreaming about what my home would look like one day and how I would make it a cozy place to raise our family.

Living that dream is more than I could have ever imagined. We are so incredibly blessed, and I never take one day for granted. (Even the really freaking tired days because I have 2 under 2 and a baby who never sleeps. ;)

Thanks for following along the journey, friends.

Until Next Time,
