Sticky, sweet, juice from the popsicle ran down his chin. Leaving a smile big enough to make the red stains on his white shirt the least of my concerns. We had just had the most peaceful photo session we’ve ever had. It was only fitting to end it with popsicles on the tree swing. Tennessee […]

I sat at the kitchen table, full of veggie straw crumbs and the remnants of 3 turkey sandwiches. You climbed up in my lap and squeezed my arm while we watched through the archway your brothers dancing in the living room. It was one of those moments that caught me off guard. Nothing spectacular. Very […]

I sat on the floor in your nursery. The room still had a faint smell of fresh gray paint. The walls were bare. I stared at you, lying on that blanket, it had only been a week but how had you changed so much? My camera sat next to me and I could see in […]

We were supposed to travel. We were young, newly married, newly free. Four years of travel while you finished out your enlistment seemed like the thing to do. It’s what people in the military just did. Until it was time to move into our first home. You weren’t there that first day. Called away to […]
