My most favorite photos yet. And yep I sure did immediately print this first one on a huge canvas for the mantle- I would also like to get some big ones of each kid printed but I feel silly decorating walls when we are hopefully moving within the year (if the house ever gets started.) so I’m just waiting. I’m so proud of my little family. And yes, there is an obvious gaping hole where Maxwell should be- forever and always- but I’m so thankful for these four people that make my life so great. Slash exhausting.
Kara Stewart took all of these. She is an equally amazing friend and mother. Every time I am with her, I come home feeling like my cup has been refilled.
There were several “girls nights” that she and Katie hosted after Max was born and died. We sat in her breezeway with twinkle lights and I poured out my soul over fruit platters and cookies until I was out of tears. I don’t think she has any idea what that meant to me, how she created a form of therapy that I didn’t know I needed. Anyway, that’s another story for another day and I’m sure thankful for her talent behind the camera.
