We three Wheelers are currently in one of the busiest times of our lives. I appreciate the moments, then, when we can check in with extended family and spend quality time reconnecting. A few weeks ago, Paul’s parents, his brother, and his brother’s wife came to town for a weekend. It’s rare that all seven of us are together, and we were able to have a nice relaxing time together, talking, watching movies, playing video games, and even having family photos made. You can see a selection of photos from our session here: http://thebeautifulmess.com/2014/04/lifestyle-wheeler-family/. This was our third time working with Candice and Daniel of The Beautiful Mess and we had a blast!
All too often, it can be easy to only notice what makes us different from our families. Old annoyances and childhood arguments carry over into adulthood and color our relationships. I’m always thankful for moments that unite us with our families and remind us just how blessed we really are to have such supportive, fun, engaged, strong, hilarious people in our lives.
