March 28, 2013 Update

A lot has happened since I last posted… and I’ve forgotten to update you here!

This past weekend we moved. Yes, it was a sad choice – but a wise one. We loved our country home – but found all of our time, money and resources were going into it. We want more out of life than a house. We have bought a home still in the area – but in town, and much simpler. We don’t get that house for a month so we are renting a house this month. Always an adventure!

But the big news we wanted to share is really exciting!

We have been working on this forever… but finally went public with what our family is working on this weekend. Want to see what it is? You can watch it HERE

Yes! We are adopting!! So excited! It will likely be a year or more still… but we eagerly anticipate that day! You can follow our journey on our adoption blog HERE.

And what some people don’t know is that to adopt is about $35,000. Crazy. Insane. But we truly feel it is crazier for a child to not know a loving family.

Here is the deal….

20-30minute session with a minimum of 10 images on disc for $100-150 (depending on photographer). Amazing deal… and in time for Mother’s Day!!

If you are interested here are the photographers involved.. a few more have signed up but still have to send us their details…. so stay tuned. Please contact the one closest to you if interested!
