Lost But Not Quite Forgotten


Chris and I met when I was in college. I was young and wild. Sometimes TOO wild! Sure I learned a lot in college but I also had fun. Lots and lots of fun.

We dated for awhile and then got married. After several years of marriage, the kids came along. Three of them in 3 1/2 years! Suddenly I was an adult. Eventually the adult me completely overshadowed the wild me.

Occasionally Chris will comment that he misses the "girl" he married. We've been together for 14 years - I'm older now and I'm a wife and a mom, too. Apparently, in my mind, that equates to being more serious and less spontaneous. You know what, though? I sometimes miss that wild side too.

OMG can I relate Em!
Somewhere between marriage, kids and now I lost who I use to be. I am learning sometimes you need to put the two selves together to make a whole. I love your portraits!
