Gratitude. It’s a word that comes up a lot, especially this time of year. Today I am thankful for a number of things: for a beautiful frosty winter’s day, that tomorrow is December and the start of the holiday season, for a job that I love, and most of all, for families that make me fall in love when they share their stories with such open hearts.
I mean really, it doesn’t get any better than this family’s story. Forget the city. Leave it all behind and move to where the surf is amazing and scenery is top notch. Let’s build our dream there and show our children how life can feel like with the beach as our playground and deer as our backyard pets. Andrea and Marc, you inspire me with your brave hearts, and I’m sure many others as well, to carve a little piece of heaven for our own lives that you have everyday.
Ten years from now, as you near your 20th anniversary, I hope you will remember to look back on this time capsule of how life is at your 10th. Finney and his love for grass-tasting lollipops, new 3-year old habits with certain body parts, TC and her incredible ability of colour pairings (I wonder where she gets that from!) and creative imagination, and the legacy that you two have already built in the early years of family life.
Happy 10th anniversary Andrea and Marc! You are indeed, truly LOVED.
I would love to capture your unique everyday life, just as you are, and preserve those memories for days when they start to fade. So get in touch and we can start chatting about what’s important to you and your family to remember, years from now.
