This really is our Happy Ever After...

When you are younger & you think about what your life is yet to become - The "Happy Ever After" can be anything...A handsome prince, getting into a brilliant University, making it to the Olympics, even flying to the moon...The point is you daydream what the "Ever After is" without even really knowing what it could possibly be...


Take my life for example...What I use to dream as my "Ever After" is completely different than the reality of what is has become...But I guess that's the beauty of it all...Dreaming, living, walking on this journey that is set out for you in life..


Sometimes I have days or moments where my life feels like I couldn't possibly have dreamed a "Happier Ever After"...


Take the other day...


A friend took some family pics for us, well really me...I adore having pics of my little family- And even though I take hundreds of pics a week, it's rare that the 4 of us are in them together...Craig on the other hand is not a big fan of pictures in general, let alone a family photo shoot...So I didn't tell him until the very the last minute, that way he couldn't get all worked up about it...I'm good like that...


The shoot was as to be expected...Never what you picture it to be...Pip had fallen asleep in the car on the way there so had her grump face on for the majority of it...


Noal was well Noal...Chasing after things, wanting to dig in the mud, wiping his snotty nose all over my face...The usual...I resorted to flat out lying to get him to look at the camera..I'd yell out "Oh look there's Aidan" {his little buddy who we were seeing after} & pretend I kept seeing him...


The thing that got me the most looking at the pictures is she really captured us as we are...








And I felt the love, the hope, the happiness when I looked at them...It hasn't been the easiest of years for my little family but seeing all that shine through brought such a overwhelming feeling when I saw them...


Regardless the challenges...Overcoming the hurdles...Accepting it all as it comes....This is our story...This is our journey...This really is our Happy Ever After...





BIG SHOUTOUT: All photos are by Genevieve from Joie de Viever ...Thank you Gen for having such a big heart, talented eye & capturing us as we are...Much love...
