9

meagan white photo - us 1 9 years with you.

This 9th year has been, in a word, INCREDIBLE.
But we both know it’s been so much more than that.
There isn’t a word to accurately say it;
there isn’t a way to accurately describe it.

9 years ago, I stood, holding your hands, committing to a life I would have never predicted.
9 years ago, I promised my forever to you, not knowing what that forever would be.
9 years ago, I stood with dreams and fearful hope of what marriage would look like.
9 years ago, I told you I loved you, not knowing how much bigger love actually was.
9 years ago, I thought I knew. I thought I understood. But really, I had no idea.

9 years have stretched, grown, tried, and blessed us, all in ways we would have never guessed.

This 9th year, dare I say it, has been our BEST.

 9 years ago, if I had mapped out what I thought I wanted from my life with you,
I would be heartbroken today to learn of all the things I missed out on.
9 years ago, I had no idea of the magnitude that my life with you would be.
I would have sold it so short, but that’s what’s beautiful about these 9 –
we’ve never been in control, and I love it.

Here’s to 9x9x9x9 more years of out of control, absolute love with you.meagan white photo - us 2-2

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.
.
“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie
