I love sweet kisses from my girl!
When Kristina Mosley came to photograph us at our home, she ended up staying with us pretty much all day. The result was a ton of beautiful pictures taken of us doing what we normally do on a Saturday. One of those things is take advantage of some time not working and head outside!
One of the selling points Derrek talked to me about when we decided we didn’t want to be at the beach anymore was how much space we would have out here. We have no HOA fees, neighbors whose windows directly look into our windows, or tons of traffic right outside. Our front porch gets plenty of use by us on a daily basis, especially when it’s rainy and we cannot take the kids in the yard or to the park. While the kids are outside, there’s a free for all on blowing bubbles, riding cars and tricycles, and running around in the yard. It’s so good for each and every single one of us to get some fresh air and run off some energy from being inside for most parts of the work day. These are the things that make my heart happy. I don’t have the fanciest car, newest designer handbag or biggest diamond ring. My treasures lay with these people, and my life wouldn’t be anything worth having if I didn’t have them. I am so thankful for all the growth that has led me here and the growth that is continuously coming for myself and my family. I’ve learned that you have to be thankful for what you have in the moment, not always waiting for the next big thing in your life to happen. The happiest you can be is right here, in this very present moment, enjoying what’s been placed in front of you. I hope you guys take this and go into the weekend with an open heart ready to recieve some goodness!
