First Family Photo Shoot

Yes, it's been 5+ weeks since I've blogged. I have a dozen blogs with titles saved and stored in my brain, but I can't find the time to sit down and write. Working full time, mommy-ing 2 toddlers, being present in my marriage...well, it just fills my days. The past 5 weeks have been filled with 2 trips [10-day Florida vacation and 5 days in Illinois celebrating my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and extended family getaway] plus a major work reorganization, plus the daily grind.

I promise to attempt [which is really no promise at all!] to post more. Judah and Addise are more amazing with each passing week. What they teach me is compelling and profound. What I'm learning as a working mom is valuable. How my marriage is changing is worth sharing. Time is simply not on my side.

So, for now, here are a few of my favorite pics of our first family photo shoot in April. The amazing Hana Chung [] was our woman! A few of my favorite shots...

How do you not love Judah kissing Addise?!?
We are sitting on the bench at The Montage where I prayed for them for years!

Addise is crazy about her Daddy!

"Come on, Sissy!"

Addise's first birthday picture.
She's wearing a traditional Ethiopian dress we got for her!

Hard to pick a picture for Judah. He had so many ridiculously cute ones!

On the beach...

Celebrating 10 years of marriage. Love this man!
