things i love.

i love boys on the front porch.
eating candy.
with their football, a water bottle, and a trash pile.


i love when august decides to do his own makeup.
with a red sharpie.

i love my new red shoes.
even if they are incredibly uncomfortable.
beauty is pain.

i love my sisters.
they're better than anyone else's sisters.
peacock.
i also love posting pictures of them
all fuzzy haired and pregnant.
it's good for my ego.

i love baby buns on stair rails
in the sunlight.


i love watching gus when he laughs.
it makes me laugh too.
and then i go crazy giving him 1000's of kisses.

i love looking at old pictures
of Lover holding isaak.
or any of our babies for that matter.

i love (and miss)
my texas friends.

i love visiting my friend candace
at her beach house.

and i love that she's so beautiful.
especially when she's pregnant :)

i love when rita makes me delicious treats.
hint. hint.

i love that i have one girl.
and that she's the most beautiful girl on the planet.
not to mention totally funny and talented.

i love texas.
and i love that texas loves texas too.

i love sewing with my friend amy.
i've actually been craving it.
now i just need some free time.
what's that, you ask?
i have no idea.

i love these brothers
in their retro clothes.

i love self portraits
in the victoria secret dressing room.

i love father daughter relationships.
nothing tops them.
nothing.

i love the gospel of christ.
and
i love america.
and i love when both of these things hold hands.
it makes my heart warm.

and the best?
i love these kids.
and i love that they're mine.
all 5 of them.
