Allison & Josh are getting married today at the @thehistoricpostoffice ! I can’t wait to capture their wedding ceremony & all of their wonderful moments with them & their daughter Peyton! We talked about her a lot during their engagements & I can’t wait to meet her! Congratulations you two!
✨Fall Wedding Season✨ officially starts for me tomorrow! Can’t wait to photograph all of my couples walking down the aisle!
Getting married? Are you a Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter couple? (Yes, I I said Winter. I have 6 couples getting married in the winter for 2019/2020!) Theres beauty in every season but I’d love to hear which one you love best!
It’s been too long. Too long since I heard your voice. Too long since I’ve seen you. Too long since the only world that I knew had you in it. Too long since your space was full.
Richard, it’s been too long. It makes my body physically shake when I think of all of the space you left behind. The space I can fill with your memory & doing things in your honor, creating things in your memory; but when the dust settles... when the sun sets & the moon rises, there is so much unoccupied space around us. I won’t call it vacant space, because it will always be yours. But unoccupied, incomplete, desolate are a few words that come to mind.
I fill the incompleteness with your memory. With hope & drive to be there for the big & little moments of life. If I’m being honest, I haven’t let your space in too often as of lately because I worry sometimes that it is still too heavy. But that’s where I was mistaken. It’s heavy because it matters. No matter how many years past, it matters & you matter. And I can say that I haven’t let your space in, but that’s not quite true. I think of you everyday. We named our Son’s middle name after you. I started running again (more like slowly jogging) & think of you because loosing you was why I started in the first place. After I pray, I also say my hopes & fears up to you too.
There is so much space still here for you & I guess that’s what I’d like anyone to know who’s going through a hard time. There is so much space here for you.
We’re coming up on our 8️⃣th Annual Richard Scott Fee Memorial Endowment Golf Tournament! How is it already the 8th one? Two days ago was National Suicide Prevention Day & the posts I saw & read brought up so many emotions I haven’t let rise to the surface lately. That’s another thing I would tell someone who may need to hear it, loosing Richard effected every facet of my life. Good & bad, bold & weak, how I love & grow; all were effected. His space is still profound.
When these posts effected me way more than I thought they would I decided to put that energy somewhere. I will be walking & representing The Richard Scott Fee Foundation at the Out of The Darkness Walk in Virginia Beach on 10/26/19. Continued⬇️
Four months with our sweet sweet boy! So much more love & so much more personality each & every day! We love you buddy, thanks for making our Summer full of entertainment & joy. I can’t wait to continue to see you grow & learn & experience new things! We love you!
