The 411

Wow. Things here are just a wee bit on the crazy side right now. In the midst of the 3 kiddos and all their end-of-the-year activities...and single parenting (AGAIN) this week....we decided to make an offer on a new (old) house. For the past few months we have been scouting out a location for a natural light photography studio. Someplace nearby that I could use for my indoor sessions that wouldn't involve me removing every piece of furniture from our family room every time I had a client session. The studio looking led to house looking...which led to falling in love with this place. So. Tomorrow is the day.

There are a billion things that could go wrong so I'm trying not to get too emotionally attached (don't suppose the fact that I drove by it tonight is really helping that situation too much). We've got more than a few obstacles to overcome first...like presenting an offer, selling our house, inspections, etc. But if it all works out I might be sharing pictures taken here soon! I've always, always wanted an older house (Craftsman or Tudor) and the sun room with its walls of windows took my breath away. I do really love our house though...so REALLY...I'm not going to get attached.

There is also a garage space that could easily be converted to a studio as well...plus 1.5 acres of wooded land that backs to the Blue River. {Sigh} see...I'm not attached at all!

I debated sharing this little tidbit but decided I needed a place to vent some of my pent up nervous energy. I know that everything will work out the way it should. I'm SO thankful for the home that we have....we have way more than we really need. And I can truly say that if it doesn't work...we'll be happy here. But a girls gotta dream, right?

Speaking of dreaming....nothing much sweeter than a couple dreaming of their first child.

It is always amazing to me to have the opportunity to interact with people during some of the most exciting moments in their lives. And having your first child is about as amazing as it gets.

This couple will make such wonderful parents. It is easy to see their excitement and anticipation growing already!

And there aren't many things more beautiful than a woman who is about to become a mom. Somehow they always seem to radiate such warmth and resolve. They know the important task at hand and the love they carry is so strong and pure.

Anxiously awaiting the birth of Baby A. I can't wait to meet her in person and see you two become mom and dad!
