I hope you guys, whether you're celebrating the holiday or not, are cozied up with your loved one(s) today. While Thanksgiving itself has a troublesome history, giving thanks and expressing gratitude is always a wonderful idea and that's what I'm spending this day doing. There is so much to be thankful for. I'm most thankful for my sweet love and our little floof. They bring me so much joy and happiness on a daily, hourly basis, I can't imagine life without these two
Living in the Pacific Northwest and being a part of a creative community puts me into contact with so many incredible artists, entrepreneurs, and makers. One of those people is Tiarra Sorte and last Saturday we met up here in Tacoma for an in-home photo session. Dan and I hadn't had photos of us together (other than tripod photos that I took of us) since our wedding, and I wanted to have photos of just us together before we decide to make a tiny human. We've also been talking about moving to Seattle sometime next year for a new adventure, and so I wanted to have photos in our very first (owned) home.
The session was so fun and I'm totally in love with the images Tiarra created for us. I didn't realize how special it would be to have photos in our home and around our little neighborhood for us to look back on and remember our time in this house forever. It will be so fun to show our kids what our first house looked, and a peek at our neighborhood. Whenever I'm in Sacramento with my parents we usually do a drive-by of their first homes. One I don't remember because I was a baby, and one I just barely remember living in before we moved up to Anchorage. I imagine driving through Tacoma with our kids showing them our first super tiny house, and then this house just a few blocks away.
I hope you are with people who love you today. If you aren't, or if the holidays are stressful and your family situation isn't awesome, just know that you are loved and that you are so worth loving. And I am thankful for those of you who come take the time to read my little blog and comment, or follow on instagram or facebook. Blogging and social media can be weird, but it's so nice to have connections with other humans, even if it's just over the web. So here's a big internet hug to you guys.
What are you grateful for this season?
