New parents cherishing their son in heart, mind, and spirit.
Lora and I have been friends for over a decade. We’ve adventured Lebanon and Thailand at each other’s side and when this world gets crazy I dial her number to reaffirm truth. When I visited her last month we found a park with a speckling of daisies where I could capture her family aglow in the heat of our midwest summer. In return she is making my baby in the womb a quilt to keep him warm when he is greeted by the turning of summer to fall. Love this friend for all seasons.
Kent is our pastor here in Indy and we so appreciate his vulnerability and sincerity in leadership. He often shares about family life from the pulpit and, having children about the same ages, we can so often relate.
Notice in some photos how I intentionally blurred the boys movement to signify the velocity of this moment in life for the Livingston.
Life with three littles is wild and dynamic.
I am smitten with this last photo of petite Irie and her devoted momma and daddy. In it we glimpse the newborn babe phase:
and beset with love.
My parents just moved back to the U.S and are house hunting! So glad to have Nene and Poppi closer to grandbabies, but missing their old digs in the UK! Our trip there a year ago created a yearning for more.
Reminiscing on some memories from our trip there a year ago....
We only had a couple days in the city so we hit a few of the "musts:"
The Tower of London with its blood soaked biscuit Raven connoisseurs
Hampton Court with its great halls, rose gardens, and topiary maze
Borough Market for its meat pies and mushy peas
"When on thy lovely vale I stand to gaze,
I feel thou need'st from me no meed of praise:
Thy hanging woods, thy fountains, and thy bowers,
Thy dashing floods, thy landscapes, and thy flowers,
Thy bold grey rocks, thy healthy purple fells,
Where silent solitude with beauty dwells ;"
On Bingley by John Nicholson
My parents moved to Britain a few years ago and in June we were able to join them for a jaunt across the pond. Our first days were spent in darling Edinburgh! We were enchanted by...
Hot chocolate sundaes from Mary's Milk Bar
Hog roasts with sweet chili sauce and haggis
Intricate crown jewels fortified within a high castle
Golden gorse on favored Arthur's Seat
Lots of overdue snuggles with Grandaddy and Nene!
When your momma's water broke in the wee hours of the morning she washed the dishes, put away a load of laundry, and finished knitting a hat.
You're in good hands little man.
