I've been working very hard on documenting us. I want our kids as much as I want your kids to find photos of their parents young, happy and terribly in love. I want them to see us laughing together, the places we traveled, our bad hair choices and outdated clothing. I want it to come through so strong they are not sure if they like it or think its gross. Last year we went to the Garfield Conservatory for Valentine's Day and we went back this year too. I think as long as we are here in the city you will find the two of us there wandering together in the warmth and humidity. We returned purposely to the same bench as the year before to sit among the green, warm dampness. I felt deeply content for where we are, what we are doing and where we are headed. I don't always feel that way. But I did on this day and it seems to be a trend as of late. We are pretty far from getting it together and on a path we didn't even know existed. But we are together, every day, hand in hand, sometimes content, sometimes disappointed, sometimes mad, but each morning there are two coffee cups, two toothbrushes, and two sets of dirty boots.

I pray each time I begin to photograph a wedding that it takes you back to the love of your life in that moment every time you pick up the photo.

Here's to love!
