In denial…maybe

We had the incredible opportunity to share life with 2 amazing college students this summer. The first one was Maeve, a person who taught us how to love life fully and smile at every opportunity, good or bad. She was more than an intern and someone who has changed us. The second was Katie. Not only did we fall in love with her sweet, gentle heart, but Gressett found a new best friend in her. I have never heard him laugh more then when he was with her. There is a void today as both are gone and back to life as a college students. I miss them not only for the incredible help they gave but for the pouring out of their boundless energy and love on everything they both did. I find it hard to move forward today in searching for more people to fill that void. Those are some big shoes to fill! (Thanks Brad for the sweet hookup on these two!, we owe you BIG TIME!)

Crazy Love…

I love my husband. I couldn’t imagine there was room left in my heart to love another the way I love him. And then this little person entered my life and captured my heart. Thanks Gressett for showing me the capacity of my heart. I now find myself loving my husband even more. Love is a crazy and wonderful thing. (Thanks Daley for capturing that moment with this photo.)

Here we go…

This site is dedicated to Gressett, the one who has truly brightened our lives. In this journey, we hope to laugh often, learn from our mistakes, and instill great insight into our child. Here we go…fasten your seat belts, it is going to be a wild ride.
