While visiting Southern Utah, I adjusted the settings, and handed my “nice camera” over to my mom and said, “Will you please take a picture of me and Simon?”. I want evidence that I existed in this family (since I’m always the one behind the camera). Bless my mother’s soul, this is the best we got.

I chuckled when I saw it cause it reminded me of this little story going around on Pinterest

I have been told quite a few times that “Wow! Your camera takes really nice pictures”. I know those who say it mean well, but it’s not the camera that takes the photos, it’s the person (sillies!). Remember that next time you opt to have someone with a “nice camera” take important (wedding, engagement, baby, family memories) photos for you.

This soapbox moment is brought to you by Canon, and Nikon . The “really nice camera” makers. 😉

I snapped these mere hours (less than 24) before giving birth. She embodies that coveted pregnancy glow. Plus, have you ever seen a full term belly that is so beautiful!? Not to mention…this is her THIRD child!

7 years ago today, I thought I knew (but really I didn’t) about the wild ride of marriage, family, and life that I signed up for. It was a beautiful day, and has been a wonderful 7 years with this man.

I have learned a lot over the past 7 years some of which are:

– I don’t know everything

– My capacity to love is bigger than I thought


– I wish I was as thin as I was when I thought I was fat

– I can do hard things, and have an amazing support system in my spouse (like go through school, the daily grind of having children, give birth naturally, start and maintain a business)

– the companionship in marriage is the best. I love it.

– Being romanced and wooed is wonderful, but being silly is better.

And much more. Happy Anniversary dearest Brantie!
