TIME AWAY

IMG_5852

Somehow the past few weeks have felt like a whirlwind. We just returned from a wonderful trip to Jackson and it suddenly feels like summer. True summer. I’m in desperate need to get this house (my poor lawn) and our lives into summer mode! Hoping the next few days give me the time to do so. Lots of updating to come.

ON BEING A MOTHER

IMG_5408

It’s crazy how in an instant your life can change. Someone enters this world and you’re immediately drawn to them. So in love with them that it’s hard to see outside of your life with them…the chaos that once consumed your days is blurry and irrelevant. My feelings for this little boy continue to amaze me. A feeling so deep and so broad that it is truly immeasurable and indescribable. He is the purest joy and I feel so very thankful to be his mommy.

To my own mother…it almost hurts my heart to think of the love that fills yours. I can barley handle the weight of love for one child, let alone three. You are my rock. My everything. You are the one person who always reminds me and shows me that family is what makes life worth living. Your children are your world…and you remind us of that daily. I can only hope that one day Bridger feels the same way about me- completely overwhelmed with gratitude and love.

A few photos from our trip to Louisville. We had the best time celebrating Easter with some of our dearest friends and MY sweet little godson! Still can’t believe I’m a godparent. Yikes.

Although Bridger slept through the Easter egg hunt, he had a pretty great time playing around in the egg-less field post hunt! The kid loves being outside. And the piggy back rides he was getting from his daddy…well they were pretty darn cute!

A MORNING WITH PANCAKES

Morning pancakes with the super talented, Lauryn Byrdy! I’ve always loved photographs that capture the everyday. Nothing posed. Nothing staged. Just real laughs and real moments. Because in reality, those are the moments you want to savor forever. The one’s that can vividly evoke so much emotion and remembrance of a certain time and place. So a big thank you to Lauryn for capturing this simple morning. It’s a moment in time that I’ll never forget!

So…you could say I’m a little behind! We’ve been busy with all sorts of things lately. Most notably, anxiously awaiting the arrival of Spring! Come on, Spring!

I know I’ve said it before, but Bridger grows sillier each day! Watching this boy learn and develop has been my greatest joy. I especially love this bottom photo- this kid loves his granny. I mean, giggles louder and harder than with anyone else. He sure is lucky!
