My favorite pictures to ever hit this blog. I titled this post based on it’s worth and the complete inability to describe what these pictures mean to me. This event will go down as one of the brightest memories in my book. I have two natural parents and two bonus parents. I have two siblings and two half siblings. We are categorized and divided by labels and last names. The true distinction of family lies within our loyalty which run much deeper than our blood connections. I have four parents and four siblings. I have one brother in law and two nephews. I have a husband who loves me at my worst and brings out my best. This is my perfectly imperfect family and without them I don’t know what I am, but it would be much less than I am today.
Each of these people has shaped me in incredible ways. I have learned traits from each of them and loved deeper because of them. Our family is who we choose to love. These are my people. I share blood with many of them but the memories that bind us are the real glue. I am thankful to call them my family and love them with lasting fierceness. Be thankful for those you have in your life. They will never be perfect, but their imperfections are what make them yours. You know them at their best and you have the opportunity to love them at their worst. What a privileged that is.
Happy thanksgiving! There is so much to be thankful for. Reach out to your loved ones and don’t let anything tarnish your ability to be close. Photo credit to Shelley Foster for using her unmatched skills in photography and coaxing. She can instigate a true smile when no one else can but that is only a small piece of her divine talent. If you need pictures taken I can’t recommend this woman enough, she is the best you will find! Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my happiest shots. Have a lovely day!
