If we haven’t bumped into one another in person, there’s a good chance that you might not know I’m actually pregnant right now! Zack and I are expecting our first child in October, and to say that pregnancy has been a rapidly moving season would be a massive understatement.
A few weeks ago, I realized I could probably still get my wedding dress on and so I did with the intention of celebrating the love that is bringing this little adventure into the world and commemorating this season of preparing and cherishing.
I’d love to tell you that this self portrait shoot was really dignified and graceful but it totally wasn’t! Feeling awkward, realizing it’s been ages since I’ve photographed myself like this, and shuffling equipment and our kitchen around (yes, this is in the kitchen) - yet that’s kind of a picture of life in this season too. There is art to be found and made in between the comically dysfunctional. Somewhere in the middle is where the bigger picture of the gifts we’re given each day rests.
Whatever season of life you’re in, I hope that you can take a few moments today to laugh at the inconveniences out of your control and to celebrate the bigger movements toward what God has for you in this life!
