I’m going to warn you now, this is going to be a soppy post. So, if that’s really not your thing I’d probably stop reading now if I were you. I was looking through some photos this evening from a couple of weeks ago and these few just really stood out to me. Seeing these just really hit home to me how lucky I am that this is my life. That these two are my family.
Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, my life was on a completely different track. I was unhappy and in a rut, although I didn’t know it at the time. Luckily for me one day I ‘woke up’ and realised that things needed changing and drastically. And, once I’d opened myself up to change things got so much better. When I fell in love with Matt everything was easy, he felt like home from the very beginning.
I felt like I was so lucky to find this sort of love. To get to spend my life with my best friend is a dream come true. And then, a few years later, we found out we were pregnant. Although I didn’t believe it could get any better I hit the jackpot the day that Lyra was born. My heart feels full to bursting just looking at her and watching her grow is the greatest privilege.
But seeing the two people I love most together. Words can never describe it. Because not only do they love me, but they have their own relationship and love for each other. It’s strange knowing their love wouldn’t be possible without mine and Matt’s love. We created this beautiful, amazing little girl. We created a family. Seeing Lyra’s face light up when Matt walks through the door after work is honestly the highlight of my day. Such pure excitement! I think listening to the two of them laughing away on the baby monitor as he bathes her comes a close second though.
No words can describe it. But I think these pictures can begin to.
