So the girls and I moved out of our house in rural Georgia into a beautiful craftsman right in the heart of Athens. I love our new home. It's a sweet little bungalow, with wood floors and high ceilings, two exposed brick fireplaces, a studio for my work, and within walking distance to some locally owned restaurants and bars. This house is zoned for the best elementary school in Athens, and even better, my best friend Tyler moved back from Brooklyn and lives in the upstairs apartment. It's a gorgeous refinished attic space; I'll be posting about soon. Y'all... the light in this house is amazing. It has a lovely front porch, is situated in a neighborhood where people take walks and get to know their neighbors, and some close friends, amazing and beautiful women, live right down the street. I love this house.
These are just a few detail shots of the interior.
From a personal standpoint, I have to say that things have been deep and difficult. I have been adjusting to major changes and facing the challenge of being a self-employed single parent. Working as a photographer for a company has been a whirlwind of clients, new experiences, and growth, and it has been beautiful. I guess it has been like all of life... really hard but really good. Larken turned one this past week. Her first year of life passed so quickly. Her sweet little heart is a gift to me. Both of my girls are precious and rare. Piper is excited about the possibility of starting school soon, and Larken, though not walking yet, is pulling up to stand whenever she has the chance. Piper is truly a remarkable child; she is incredibly gifted with verbal communication and loves to make art. I want so much to fully appreciate these times, when they are small. They're little human beings. And I love their hearts.
Thank you, so much, for reading along and taking part in the story of our life.
