Love…..and priorities


The addition of my sweet baby Crew has taught me a lot. Just his presence in our home changed my whole perspective. I could wing it with 3 but with 4, changes had to be made. Then, he got sick. Really sick and we were so scared. We had been blessed with 3 healthy wonderful kids. Had we been given too much? Was is our time to suffer?

Spritually, Crew has taken us on a wonderful journey. Emotionally, he has made me really think about how essential these precious moments are with my young children. He is healing and doing well. He will be a healthy little boy. His smile and giggle brings a deeper joy than I could ever describe. The snuggles that my other kids give him melt my heart. Our family is whole, our blessings are deep and our faith is strong.

I had to make a choice. The one thing I could sacrifice is my blog. My time has been better spent with my children. But now, I have so much to share with you!! So many photo sessions un-blogged. 3 Weddings to be seen. Tutorials waiting on my hard drive. My re-acquaintance with the blogging world will be slow but I am excited for what is to come. Thank you for being so patient….

Here is a free download of this sign I made with baby Crew’s tiny toes. It is a 5×10 size but can be easily ordered as an 8×10 and cut to size. I think I will print it on styrene or foam board and place it on an easel.
