there are moments that i know i will long for, even as i live them...


i came across this (title) quote & i feel it in my bones. i've learned over time, that life just keeps getting better. it really, really does. i was married to chris & my world was enough, and then we had abel, a son, a little piece of each of us that is now out in the world bringing happiness with him wherever he goes, and our world got bigger. i assume it will do the same here in about two weeks too! but still... this quote just gets me. as we play together as a family, laughing, snuggling, eating, all of it... i can feel how much i am in love with our life & how much i will remember these moments and my heart will ache a little when i think of it because then there will be more of us, or we will be older, or we will be in a different season entirely. it's so hard to explain it, because i know that in those future moments, looking back on these ones i will feel the same way about that time too. am i making any sense here? i guess i'm just trying to say that life is so very good. so good, i could eat it with a spoon and not feel sorry asking for seconds or thirds or fourths. the Lord has blessed me ten times over with the sweetest family, a loving husband, an unfairly cute toddler and now a baby girl. i have friends all over, near & far, sisters i adore, in laws that we don't see near enough but love & think of daily, a mother who taught me to love well & to have a giving heart, little brothers who warm my heart with their smiles & the way they look at my son, the list. goes. on...
so before this little lemon makes her debut, i had hoped to capture a little bit of the magic that this family of three has going on RIGHT NOW, before things change again & we have new love in our lives & a different skip in our step. thank you to my sister for taking these for us! they turned out pretty dreamy, which is a miracle considering we were working with a big ugly cloud that decided to come in and block our gorgeous light, a camera we are still learning, a toddler who only wanted to run... and run & run, also a 9 month pregnant lady who's emotions are over here AND there and everywhere else. at least we had chris... always looking like that & keeping his cool :) 

^^^lastly, these ponies were on the side of the road on our drive home... you know me & my weakness for pictures of ponies, and this sunset was waiting for us when we pulled into the driveway. amen.
