Last week I shared a bit of my heart as I talked about why things are quieter over here on the blog. The love and support y’all gave was so encouraging, so thank you to everyone who took the time to comment or even text or email me! It meant the world. :-) I adore being a momma and I know it’s the most important job that I will ever have, so I don’t take it lightly. That being said, I thought it was about time I share a quick update on the kids with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you catch a peek of them now and then, but a lot of our day to day happenings are over on our personal Instagram (feel free to follow along there).
If we are friends on Facebook or you follow me on Instagram, than you know what last week held for our little family. Last Sunday (the 7th) our 2 pups got out and went for an EPIC romp. They used to do this from time to time in our old neighborhood, and would always come home within a few hours, together. This time was different though. Nearly 24 hours after the ran, Owen came home alone, which has NEVER happened. The moment I saw him, I broke down in tears because Blakely wasn’t with him and I feared the worst.
I remember it like it was yesterday. The shock of being in labor so early. The terror that something may be wrong. The pain and exhaustion like I have never known. All culminating in the absolute most incredible, beautiful moment of my life to that date…when they laid you on my chest. Your daddy and I sobbed happy tears, and this immense love like I have never known washed over me and has only grown stronger since that day.
I am so thrilled that you have found your way here! I’m Karen, a wedding and lifestyle photographer with a passion for ice cream, dogs, and Gilmore Girls. My blog is a place where I can share love stories with you, whether it’s an engagement, a wedding day, or the welcoming of a new baby! It is also a scrapbook of my life and a little glimpse into our home, our love, and our family. I hope you will enjoy following along!
