When friends become family…


I love a rainy Monday.  I love knowing I have nothing to do except put on a giant sweatshirt, wrap myself in a blanket and sit, undisturbed, in front of my computer and edit the day away. I mean, don’t get me wrong, there is a big part of me that wishes I could be sitting on my couch, wrapped in a blanket, peeling my two week old gel nail polish off while watching Netflix but since my life consists of editing and shooting exclusively these days that isn’t an option.  To be honest, if I think about it, I actually think that being able to edit what I did today outweighed my desire to sit and peel off the gel.  Today I get to show you some loves of my life.  There is a moment, or a series of moments that happen in life when people who are your friends cross over into becoming family. I’m not sure when that happened with Linda and Eddie, but it over the past 14 years we have become family.  We have been through so much, so many good times. Babies, engagements, weddings, vacations, and COUNTLESS nights together in front of a fire laughing, so much laughing.  We’ve also seen our share of not so awesome times, but through it all, the bond that we all share (LEEJER) has proven to be unbreakable. Life is hard, but when you have people on your side through even the toughest of times, it is manageable, and really, really, beautiful.

Linda and Eddie made three of the best people in the world who I love like my own. Taegan, Eamon and Caleb are three little lights of our lives and we are beyond blessed that they belong to us.


Love you guys so much more than you know. Can’t imagine life without you.
