Yesterday was my 27th birthday. It was amazing and wonderful, and I spent it with my husband and my puppies. I couldn't ask for anything better. He is the person I want to spend my every moment with.
Today I flew to Chicago, and I planned to post about the exciting things i've done, places i've been and people i've seen... but, then I got some terrible news.
A good friend of mine from college passed away yesterday. I haven't spoken to him in years, but many of my favorites memories from those 4 years he has a starring role in. He was a truly special guy, with a smile that was simply infectious. He passed away in the early morning as his apartment building caught on fire. He and his girlfriend were the only casualties.
All day long I've been hit with waves of grief...which is difficult to mask when you spend your days photographing babies. Emotions are rampant in rooms, and from time to time I just had to turn my brain off.
Life is just so short. Today I want nothing more than to be home with Spencer. To hug my puppies, to kiss my husband and to just lie there in bed together. I just want to be with him....
