I am at Big Spring pretty frequently during wedding season with my planning company, Dear Sweetheart Events, and we both love the gorgeous views!! We’re also close friends with the owners – Buddy & Jill – and always love getting to spend time with them! It was so fun to meet Hope at the venue and spend an evening walking around the property (even though it was pretty cold for April!).
It’s moments like this in our pregnancy that have had me pinching myself that we really ARE pregnant, and we really WILL get to meet our son. Because of our journey through miscarriage, I realize how truly precious every moment of pregnancy is. I’ve been so jaded by pregnancy … when we first began “trying” 2 years ago, I naively assumed it would be like asking for a new pair of earrings for Christmas. Sure, you may not get them… but the chances of that were super slim. All I had to do was wait.
I didn’t realize how much the word “wait” would define our journey, and I definitely didn’t realize how hard the entire process would be – physically, mentally & emotionally.
When I saw those two lines indicating our third pregnancy, I vowed to celebrate EVERY moment … even if we were never given the chance to meet this baby. And now, here we are. In our 8th month of pregnancy with our miracle boy, and my heart is FULL. Bursting, really. I’m so happy that Matt and I have these pictures to remember this sweet, sweet season!
Enjoy my favorites and a giant virtual hug to my friend Hope for capturing them!!
