A Thoughtful Gift
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.
