Can We Talk About This?


We just got pictures back yesterday from the photographer who shot our family in Hawaii over Christmas. They are so beautiful! Of all the photos, I can’t stop looking at this one.

If we’re friends on Facebook, you know that I’ve made this my new profile picture. I love it so very much. It’s not because I think I look good in it. In fact, it was super windy, my hair was going crazy, I was in bad need of a dye job at the time and my neck looks like it’s got a few too many rolls, and yet there is still something about this photo that speaks to my heart every time I see it.

It’s the look on my face. That look is me telling the world how much I love my role as mother. It brings me great happiness. There is nothing else I would rather be doing – not blogging or designing or making millions of dollars.

I have the job of my dreams. Every day I get to love with all of my heart and make the greatest difference in the lives of four human beings I co-created. It is something I take very seriously. It is something I am very honored to do. It is something that changes me and stretches me and makes me a better person.

I will treasure this picture forever. A moment was caught here that need to be able to see and remember. I have this look on my face more often than I realize.

I’ll share more pictures in the upcoming weeks.

It is a beautiful picture, all about the LOVE of a mother for a child. And that kind of love can take your breath away, just like the windy wind in Hawaii.

It definitely captures complete love and adoration from both of you. I'm so grateful for a mother who taught me to look forward to and prioritize this amazing job of being a MOM!
