Happy Birthday to Mere!
As a wedding photographer, I truly value the institution of marriage. When my first marriage a bazillion years ago didn't work out, I realized that people grow, change, and become new people. I learned a lot about myself and about the kind of partner I needed in life.
I prayed. Hard.
I prayed that God would put the right person in my life that I could grow WITH, change WITH, and become a new person WITH. I prayed that God would deliver to me a partner that would accept and embrace Ellie like she deserves. I was hoping for someone who makes me a better person, who pushes and challenges me, but sometimes lets me win.
Who knew God took EVERY request to heart. And on top of that, she's crazy pretty. She's a wonderful aunt, and an amazing mother. Not "amazing: like the watered-down version they use on the bachelor, where EVERYTHING is amazing. I'm talking about the kind of amazing that kind of SHAKES you up and you just have to stare in awe. She's the kind of mom that's nurturing but encourages independence, she's loving and thoughtful, she's a teacher, and so much more.
Today is my pretty bride's birthday. Photographers rarely have their pictures taken, so here's an iphone pic of us :)
