Favorite Photo

I know, I missed yesterday. I was on such a roll, blogging every single day. But I did something pretty awesome. I attended my third birth as a doula yesterday. It was wonderful, but long, as it is with most first babies, so I just didn't have time to blog.

So lucky you guys, you get two days worth today.

Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it:

This one goes along with my post on Mothers Day. When I was 19 I lost my mother. It has definitely been difficult to go through big life events without my mother by my side. She never met my husband, she missed my wedding, and won't be there to see my children grow up.

One of the best ways to overcome a loss of a parent is to turn towards your siblings. Since my mother's death my sibling and I have grown much closer. I have also grown a lot closer to my dad. I guess that's a blessing in disguise, family can help you heal It also helps I have an amazing mother in law (sorry if that just made you cry Judy).

And that goes along with today's writing prompt, as it is a photo from my wedding that my mother missed.

Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why

I love this photo. My sister took it as we came out of the temple, just brand newly married to greet all of our family and friends. Not too often do you get a glamorous laughing photo on your wedding day just spontaneously. I have a lot of amazing staged photos from my wedding that are all vintagey and special, but I love this one because it was a real moment captured.

I looooove that photo!! Candid wedding photos are my favorite!!

Losing a parent is really difficult no matter how you cut it - I'm sorry you've had to deal with that. :(

Beautiful photo :-) beautiful dress too.
I also lost a parent, I lost my Dad when I was 13. It's one of the reasons I didn't want a traditional wedding, as he wasn't there to give me away. I guess it helps shape us into who we are.

I LOVE this photo! Your sister definitely captured a beautiful moment. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother... and I'd be lying if I said I didn't tear up a bit. She's definitely loving this photo from afar.
