"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever."
Alfred Lord Tennyson


It’s difficult to remember a time where she didn’t find a way into my every thought, to recall a time when every idea wasn’t centered around her or inspired by her or because of her in some way. It’s strange to wonder what my thought process consisted of before she entered my life and scary to think it was all for nothing until she did. Parenting has a way of consuming you, of giving you purpose, of fertilizing the better part of yourself in hopes it can find a way to the surface… and bloom. This season of my life might just be my favorite yet.


  1. I appreciate your sentiment. I got ahead of this feeling when my wife told me she was pregnant. I became fascinated that there was a person who did not exist yet, who I would soon meet and love more than I have ever loved before, and who was basically created out of nothing. Amazing and mind-blowing.

    1. Amazing and mind-blowing is right, Peter. It's crazy to think you created this person and they essentially become your favorite thing in life. It sounds exaggerated, but man is it true.
