September is my favourite month of the year. In September 2012, I celebrated and committed my relationship to David in marriage, together with my closest family and friends. In September 2017, I met my son for the first time and became a mother forever.
I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with an old friend from high school, Tori Masters, who is an incredible photographer and co-owner of Photodot Images. She was so easy to work with and was able to capture some beautiful, genuine moments.
People in our lives are gifts worth celebrating. We can easily become acclimatized to our environment and the people who inhabit it – our family, our kids, our closest friends. Our nearest and dearest often get mixed in with the daily hustle and chaos of life; in the mundane tasks and hurried schedules.
Anniversaries and birthdays allows us to pause and honour these relationships. Seven years married and growing in deeper love with him. Two years a mother and stretching my heart and soul in parenthood.
I am grateful for the gift of September.
