Day 17: A Favorite Photo of Me and Why
This is me on our honeymoon almost 2 years ago...it's not some super glamorous shot by any stretch of the imagination, but I remember being so content, so happy, that nothing could wipe the smile off of my face. We had just celebrated our nuptials with the wedding I had always dreamed of, I was basking in the sun with my husband in Antigua away from all the pre-wedding stress that had consumed me for months, we were eating and drinking all day, and swimming in the gorgeous ocean, and I remember thinking "life doesn't get any better than this".


Little did I know that just a mere 4 weeks later, I would find out I was pregnant with Caroline. Funny how grand I thought our life was then...but it compares nothing to what life is like now for our little growing family. This is me at a time when I knew the best was yet to come, I just didn't know what the Good Lord had in store for us, just around the corner ;)

  4. Well that would be my favorite photo of me too, because obviously you are in paradise, and what is more fun than a honeymoon, and your bikini is ahhhdorable, and your stomach is so perfectly FLAT and fit! Girl, you are the cutest! :)

  5. Friend, you are gorgeous.... and skinny mini{and somehow, someway, I'm certain your tummy goes back to this same size within a month of having a babe, huh?!}. ;) ;)

    Love that this is one of your favorite photos --- and isn't it true that life just gets better once you become a family? More chaotic, wild and sometimes exhausting..... but truly better!

    Happy weekend ahead!!
