Luci, on the day that you were born I drove 3 hours in the early sleepiest part of the morning to get to you before you arrived. I was thankful for the kindness of strangers who trusted I would come back and pay for the milk your mother needed, I was overwhelmed by the strength and beauty of women, awed by the force of new life, grateful for those moments that renew hope and solidify bonds, and forever in love with you. Happy birthday you wild one, be you always.
Found this little gem lying around in the bridal suite and thought - when you get married to state your "yes" to each other. You willingly state to become a part of a covenant, a binding union between two people. Fit perfectly with yesterday's couple, Claudia & Cédric congratulations! 🍾 and thank you for letting me be a part of it!
James and Sarah’s engagement session at Falls Park is on the blog this morning! Even though we went out there early, it was super humid and hot! They were such good sports and we captured some of the cutest , real, in the moment images, for them to remember this chapter before marriage! Can’t wait for their wedding next Spring! HAPPY FRIDAY FAM!
I once saw the entirety of this word; it was right in front of me. Clearly, there was nothing more beautiful, nothing more perfect. I had to admit, I kept staring for a few moments until she turned at looked at me. Those eyes, those beautiful eyes. I kept wondering every day: How could I get close to her? How could I be her only friend; a friend who she shared everything with, and not only a friend but something more. Her love, her life. -
We were together now for a few years, we'd loved each other so much we couldn't leave each other. Until one moment when everything faded away. She didn't reply to texts for a few days, and i was getting worried. But then one day she replied, but it wasn't any normal reply, it was one filled with unhappiness, that made me cry.... I felt all kinds of feelings, I wanted to cry, shout, I got angry and I felt empty. Completely empty. She said she didn't want our familt to know about our relationship, and so she said that our only choice was to break-up. I proposed to her that we could find a different solution, but she refused. ALAS! We parted ways.
We kept in touch. We were still good friends.
But then a moment came. We had promised that we'd share all our secrets with each other, and this vow, we never broke. She told me that she was now in love with someone else. This filled me with pain, pain I felt for thr first time in my life. But I didn't show this to her, instead, I replied in a happy tone, one that hid my feelings. She, too, didn't notice. I was surprised to see that so many years of us being together, and she didn't realise what I felt inside. Nevertheless, her happiness was my happiness, and bith of us carried on.
