“We think you’ll find that every woman in her heart of hearts longs for three things: to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and to unveil beauty. That’s what makes a woman come alive.” John Elderidge, Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul
Having met Rebecca and Tommy through the military and becoming dear friends over the years, I’m not sure there are adequate words to explain truly how breathtakingly selfless this family is. As a dear friend, fellow military wife, and neighbor, I’ve observed and soaked in the scope of Rebecca’s love for her family, friends, and her littles–all of which she executes with the utmost grace. She and Tommy lead and love by example with every person and endeavor they touch–and this is not an exaggeration in the least. Without a shadow of a doubt, they are raising the most beautiful humans into this crazy, broken world; and in this season of thanksgiving, for that, I am grateful.
Fiona is their third child and first little lady into their family of five, and naturally, with her ruffles and princess crown, she stole a bit of the show. For those of you who know my love for mother-baby portraits, the next few won the prize for my favorites.
Tommy works incredibly hard to provide for and shower love upon his beautiful, ever-growing family. Any person who knows him knows just how true this is. And well, Miss Fiona…she clearly has him wrapped around her perfect little fingers. (:
I’ve had the pleasure of watching these two cuties, Oran and Trygg, grow for the past few years–and oh my how fun it’s been to watch their personalities develop.
Rebecca and Tommy, I’m ever-grateful for your unwavering friendship and your sweet, sweet family.
