I am so very excited for this weekend because I am spending Easter with my whole family! We usually celebrate Easter in Fresno with my grandparents. But, since I live in San Diego and work full-time, it has gotten harder for me make the 6 hour drive up to Fresno for a weekend.
So, driving up to Fresno for Easter was kind of out of the question this year for me. Also, my brother and his wife are expecting their baby boy NEXT MONTH (eek! Yay!), so they aren't traveling either. It looked like our family would not be together this year, which really bummed me out. Then my parents made the decision to come down to Newport to celebrate with us! Newport is only an hour away, which is completely manageable for a weekend trip!
So we will all be together and go to Church together, celebrating the holiday together. And that my friends, makes me a very happy girl. I am grateful to God that he allows us to be together so we can celebrate Him!
But what I really want to talk about today is my brother and his beautiful wife, and their little one on the way. This week has been an exciting one for them, because they have been featured on not one but TWO blogs!! This isn't surprising to me because they are gorgeous and awesome, and the cutest couple alive. I thought it would be fun for you to learn more about their amazing story, and check out these two great blogs as well!
First of all, it is about time their wedding was featured somewhere. The amazing Christy from Junebug Weddings did a great feature on Shea and Sarah's amazing wedding. It is also pretty cool to hear Sarah's thoughts about the wedding and all of it's amazing details. I could go on, but you should head on over an check out their amazing wedding! (Spoiler alert: My grandpa is wearing Converse. Awesome.)
Now onto one of my favorite shoots I have ever seen (but I may be bias!). Sarah is a beautiful and glowing mommy-to-be, and the love you can see between them brings tears to my eyes.
I think you all know how excited I am for the little boy on the way, but seeing these pictures brings the whole thing into perspective. There is so much love between Shea and Sarah, and they deserve nothing but joy and happiness. God has blessed them with so much, and this little boy is His greatest blessing yet.
I am so truly happy for them, and I know they are going to be amazing parents. Their love has always been unwavering and supportive for me, and I owe them so much. Hopefully I can be the best auntie in the whole wide world, and help them whenever they need it.
And finally. This one is a tear jerker people. My brother wrote a letter to his baby boy, and framed it as a gift to Sarah. Here is a link to the letter. If you have time read it, but make sure you have tissues.
I love you Shea and Sarah. I know you are going to be beyond perfect parents.
