A Thoughtful Gift

A Thoughtful Gift

June 10, 2012 /

I realized I never posted about one of my favorite birthday presents all time.  It was actually last year’s birthday.  I turned 30 two weeks ago y’all!  But this was my 29th birthday.  I had had a long day at work, working until 9pm.  I got home and L was super excited about me opening my presents.  I got a whole bunch of stuff for the kitchen, which was nice but not as exciting as he was acting.  Then he said, I have one more present for you. It’s in the backyard but it’s not finished yet.  I walked out back and saw this… (it was unfinished at the time)

He had carved it.  I was absolutely floored.  And then I started crying.  I couldn’t stop, it was just the most thoughtful present.  Whenever this photography business gets hard, or I get discouraged and want to throw in the towel… I remember this sign and realize that I have people behind me, encouraging me every step of the way.  But there’s this one guy who’s been the biggest fan from the beginning.  And this sign is a huge reminder of that support.  Thank you sweetie, I’m amazed and touched every time I see it.
