friday link up


For safety reasons when Chris travels, I don’t tell anyone
(besides family and a few friends) 

We don’t post about it/ tweet about it/ talk about it until my man is home! But since he is beginning his journey home from AFRICA and has been gone for the majority of May
what is on my heart? 
I get to see him so soon and it feels like it has been forever! We have missed him desperately! 
These are some pictures he took on his last trip to Africa. We have had very little communication with him so I am SO excited to hear every detail and share this journey he is returning from with you all! Chris has the most beautiful heart and the way he captures images reflects it so much. He somehow captures emotions.

We are giddy to have our man home!

Also, have you seen this video?!! 

It completely made me cry!! So sweet. I love celebrating little lives, little babies. Being a mom has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined….it has changed my life in so many ways.

I am forever thankful for my angels.

what is on your heart?

    Nothing like having you family complete and under one roof. I wish him safe travels. Are these images from this journey? Can talk about what project he was working on? Love to hear about it. Africa holds a very special place in my heart and I love hearing about the good work people are doing there.

    Oh Casey…those images. That is my dream: a camera and Africa. Those babies' eyes. Yes, please share about his project when you can. Are you still traveling with him this Summer?

    that video gave me goose bumps… so precious.

    What Chris is doing looks amazing, and I can't wait to read more about it when he comes back. I think the two of you seem like amazing people.

    No wonder you've gotten so much painting done. People are always shocked by how much I do when B is gone, but when he's here I'm still so infatuated with him that I get distracted. Nobody knows where I live (well except you since you mailed to me. lol) so I can say that B has been gone since May 9th and won't be home until the 15th of June. Whoa. He'll miss our 5yr anniversary, but he is making his dreams come true so he can fulfill mine so I'm good with it!
    Glad your hubby is coming home! Africa is a little farther than Tulsa.

    Hopping over from The Shine Project. I wanted to follow you but GFC is not working for me at the moment. I also blogged what was on my heart and linked up with you. You have stunning photos posted! Glad your honey is home safely! Happy Friday!

    Praying for safe travels home. And you are right about the pampers commercial — tissues are mandatory.

    Blessings {again} to you!

    First off, that video is ridiculously cute – it tugged on my heart strings too and I'm not even a mommy :). Secondly, I'm so glad Chris will be home soon! What a blessing! His pictures are absolutely amazing: you two are such a talented couple 🙂
