Charlotte is getting BIG!

It's SO weird... I look at Charlotte and I think, "you're getting so big!" And then I think she's only 2 months old! How will I feel when she's 1, 5, 10 YEARS old?! I am constantly reminded by my daughters presence that I need to live in the moment. I do not claim to have mastered the art of being present, I'm terrible at it. I worry, A LOT! But I'm working on appreciating all I have and spending quality time with the people I love.

I think Matt and I both struggle with documenting our lives because our job is to do this for other people. Our goal is to at least take a mini-session with Charlotte as a marker of each month of her precious life. Here is our first self-family portrait! Enjoy!

Bitty & Shawn: MARRIED!!

We drove out to the Bakersfield Museum of Art for Bitty & Shawn's fall wedding on October 17th. Bitty's dress was handmade by Ryan, another one of our friends from the Costa Mesa Playhouse. He did a beautiful job and Mel helped with the beading. We love seeing the playhouse crew, they are so FUN! Bitty & Shawn, thank you for inviting us to be a part of your day. You're both such passionate people and it was so awesome to celebrate with you and all your friends and family.

Robyn & David: MARRIED!

We get the opportunity to work with people who are in love. But people in love can be SO different. Everyone speaks a different "love language" if you will. Robyn and David are intentional. They love each other with joy but with seriousness. This is not to say they don't laugh and have a great time, they definitely do. But, they pour energy into making sure the other person is shown love and respect. I think this is something you have to work at. If Robyn and David have to work at it you can't tell. They make it seem effortless. I know I'm rambling a bit but I feel so blessed to glean unspoken relationship wisdom from our clients. I get to watch and learn.I tend to let laundry, vacuuming, Charlotte, work, emails and all the other stuff get in between me loving my husband the way he needs to be loved. Sometimes it feels like I'm trying to make googly eyes at him from across the room and everything is blocking my view. I want to learn to run across the room and get so close to his face that nothing can get in the way of me seeing him.
(*note: this does not mean I will neglect my new daughter :)

Robyn & David thank you for reminding me to be intentional. We loved being a part of your wedding day. We love even more your hearts. You are both dedicated to using your gifts for service and we can't wait to hear about your new life in a new place. Look out Utah, here some the Clintons!! :)
