Lightnin' Buggin'

Catching lightning bugs is perhaps one of my greatest, purest, most joyful childhood memories.  It was on my summer bucket list to make sure Clara got to do this for the first time, but it doesn't get dark til after her bedtime so we just kept talking about it and talking about it, but never finding a good night for it.  

There was finally a night when a thunderstorm had just rolled through, leaving the sky dark before the sun dipped below the horizon.  Clara was fresh out of her bath and in her PJs, but we scooped her up and took her out and watched as her face lit up in delight and wonder.  Okay, okay, I might have had more fun than she did, but it was absolutely one of the greatest highlights of my whole summer.  I'm thankful to have these images and video to help me hold on to this memory, and I'm really thrilled to get to share them with you.  I hope you can taste just a bit of the summery happiness here.

And let them go.

Thank be to God for lightnin' bugs.

{Nuptials} Megan + Nat

While in Georgia we went to the beautiful wedding of Robert's longtime friend Nat and his new beautiful bride Megan.  We love them both and are wishing them a lifetime of happiness together!

Our girl got all dolled up for the occasion and I've got lots of photos of their beautiful day here!

The wedding was so much fun, this girl passed out just a few minutes into the reception.  We passed her around and took turns holding her while she dozed. 

Still snoozing....

Look who woke up to eat chocolate cake.  Smart kid.

 Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!
