All We Have Is Now

Memories..photos..notes…become the very things you want to keep, hold onto, bottle up, and save for a life time. My family is truly one of Gods greatest gifts to me. Each one of them blessing me in a different way each day. Each one of them unique and full of grace and love. Each one of them reminding me that I am stronger, braver, and more adventurous with them by my side. This year my husband Aaron will be deploying overseas for the first time. For those who maybe don’t know my husband is in the national Guard reserves, he flies Black Hawks for the Minnesota Guard part-time alongside his civilian job. Although he would say I am the glue to this family I too feel the same way about him. We compliment each-other is so many different ways. He is gentle, kind, and always understanding. We have graciously learned over the years how to better support one another and truly listen and be heard and seen by each-other. Since finding out-we both have taken quite a bit of time processing both personally and together and continue to do so each day. As we hold on to each present day we are trusting and believing in the power of grace and strength to get us through our time apart. When I found out about his deployment I really wanted to capture our family unit through photos. Photos we both can hold onto, look at, and remember why were in this together. To remember that what we have is magic, sacred, and full of love.To remember even on the messiest and hardest days that what we have is pure goodness. We had the chance to work with a beautiful photographer  named Chrystal in her cozy white studio a few weeks back and I am so thrilled with what she captured. Crystals Photography  

I am so excited to be sharing her amazing work with you, and giving you a glimpse into the day!

I love this photo because it captures what my girls love to do each and every day. Dance and make believe! These dresses are from our favorite small shop Mien Studios

This photo above melts me. Aaron was made for girls but I know our creator knew that long before he was formed and conceived. His heart is tender yet strong with his girls. I admire his desire to see them flourish and be exactly who they are.

My heart already aches for how missed this man will be when he is gone. But I will trust, and I will remember my purpose, our purpose. I will remember that this is a season for growth to expand our hearts in love and grace. This is a season of pressing into strength and vulnerability. This is a season for asking for help when I may need it. This is a season of great purpose because on the other side we will see the fruit and we will build upon our story, our family story, our individual stories. All we have is now.
