last night i was able to listen to a very famous photographer, anne geddes, talk about her work. i've always respected her work... it's beautiful & of sweet babies... so how can you go wrong. BUT. tonight i have a new found respect for her & her vision & what she's done (finding a market that was so untouched & created powerful work that was & is so easily recognized as her work). she's pretty fantastic.
one quote she said really struck me:
because of babies... we have a future.
i'm a bit of a softee, but you will see soon why this got to me more than normal.
with great pleasure i'm announcing to the blogosphere that bryan & i are expecting a lil peanut in early june. we've created a future and that's pretty awesome. we ARE SO EXCITED about what that means. this lil guy or gal can be anything it dreams of: a poet, a professional mountain biker or a storm chaser (like it's daddy).
this has already been a very wonderful journey... the past 4 months have been strange & bazaar & something i have dreamed about for forever. one of the reasons i fell in love with bryan was i knew he would make an amazing father one day. his kindness, soft voice, calm demeanor & unending patience were all qualities i wanted my children to be raised with.
i want to wish this soon-to-be father a very happy birthday today. HaPPy BirtHdaY!
i'm so excited to share this with you, bryan. i love you very mucho.
