Happy Valentine's Day! | My loves


“No matter what has happened. No matter what you’ve done. No matter what you will do. I will always love you. I swear it.” 
– Defiance by C.J. Redwine

I have to take a minute on this Valentine's Day to brag about my little family. I love our life together so much... the choices Tommy and I have made together (and what has come of them), the big things and the little things that we've experienced together,  the every day moments we spend... together. :) Home is truly where the heart is... and my family is so my home. 

Back in January shortly after I blogged about 2014 being our year of LESS, Zach threw out a model call on Instagram and I immediately took him up on the offer. Knowing his photography has a very natural, raw feel to it, I was eager to see his take on us!

Considering this is our year of less, I really wanted to take the opportunity to capture us completely as-is. No hair stylist or make-up artists brought in... no buying new clothes just for the session. I wanted this to be REAL. So, we went in wearing what we would wear to a friend's house. Then we hung out with Zach as if he were an old friend. And what he captured represents us in such a beautiful, natural way. I love these photos! 

Oh, my heart. I am overjoyed with the family and the life the Lord has blessed me with. 

Happy Valentine's Day, friends! I hope you feel the love today, too!!
