The way I am

I was running yesterday morning listening to my ipod when this song came on. It seemed
like the perfect theme song for my day considering I had just taken pictures of my twin brother Austin
and his soon-to-be wife. Love was in the air and I felt so inspired to love more deeply and to strive
to be the kind of person that was lovable. The recent General Conference also focused a lot on charity
and many of the talks encouraged us to love unconditionally, which includes loving someone
for who they are- not who we think they should be. 

"The Way I Am"

If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.

Cause I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

Cause I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.

You take me the way I am. 

There is an unspeakable safety and security in knowing you will be with your spouse forever and
knowing that they take you just the way you are, even with all the flaws.

Austin & Kitsy are perfect for each other and we are thrilled to welcome her into our family!
We had a lot of fun getting all of their engagement photos. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon up the
 canyon and with all the leaves changing and falling, Autumn was certainly in the air!

It reminded me of our engagements that were taken almost to the day 3 years ago.

Here's to loving and being loved!
