first of all, just wanted to say a quick thank you for the love yesterday about my healthy eats post. i was a little hesitant to go to a more personal place than usual and speak of health & weight & body image & such... and i really appreciate all of your tips & tricks and for how kindly it was received. you guys are the best. thank you! and for those of you that are new to the kb files... welcome! i'm so happy to have you & invite you to become an official follower by clicking here.
now on to today...
i'm excited to share with you our engagements, taken by the seriously amazing photographer alixann loosle. her work is gorgeous! and i am just happy we were lucky enough to be a few of her subjects. be sure to check out her site for more of her lovely work.
without further ado, here they are! (or at least some of them!)
i think it's hard not to be overly critical of photos of yourself. i start to criticize silly things like... i hate that one strand of hair, my belt is crooked, my left eye looks a tad droopy, etc. but, the more i look at these, the more i love them. i think more than anything, i love what they represent. the two silly people in these photos have something pretty special (although i might be a tad biased). it's unlike anything i've ever known before. we randomly met halfway around the world and now, in just a couple more months, this boy & this girl will be married for time & all eternity. i don't think i can fully understand the importance of that right now, but i do know that i am beyond grateful that i met brian & now have the opportunity to be with him forever. there's been times in my life when i wasn't certain i would get here. i don't know what i've done to deserve him, but he's pretty great & i'll keep him! i think my absolute favorite photo of all is the close-up of brian's face with me whispering in his ear. (bet you wish i'd tell you what i was saying, but too bad, that's for his ears only!) i just love that face so much. that handsome boy right there, he's my soon-to-be husband & is without a doubt, the most amazing man ever.
