It might have been super hot the last day of August, but it the people made it worth while! I headed down to UofL’s campus to meet with an old friend from college and his gorgeous wife, and we worked through the heat to give them something special to take with them to their new home in Louisiana.
I love working with couples that are open to new ideas and trust me – and Elizabeth and Matt were fabulous. I could have been blinded by the fact I was watching a fella I’d known for years snuggle close and laugh with his expecting wife. Or it could have been Elizabeth’s warm smile and easy-going personality though the heat of a thousand aim-n-flames were blazing upon her. But I loved their company, loved watching them together and may have done a few happy dances.
As they begin to settle in Louisiana and make a new home, they’ll soon be welcoming their first-born, a little boy who Matt has called Turtle since they first learned they were going to be parents. And like most people, I can’t wait to hear about this little guy and how much more they love each other as their family grows. But let’s quit talking and get down to business…
It had to happen – Matt’s an alumnus and a fan through and through. :)
This spot. This photo. Her smile. It’s all PERFECT.
Another favorite – they really were are perfect together. The right amount of sweetness and humor and honesty and love.
Congratulations, Elizabeth and Matt! I know your new home is going to be a great start for Turtle and that your neighbors are lucky to have you in their community. I can’t wait to hear Turtle’s name for the first time – so keep me in the loop! And maybe we can meet up again when you venture back to Louisville. xoxo
