Our family's journey to the heart of a handmade life

Deo Gratias

Deo Gratias
Two months ago, (very) early on a Saturday morning, we welcomed our first child into the world.

 

My capacity for love is greater than I ever thought possible; each day I love our baby more and more. She is teaching us a great deal about ourselves, our marriage, and our lives. We are stronger than ever, and the love that bound us under God six years ago is continuing to grow within this brilliant little being. Motherhood is everything and nothing like I imagined. It is tiring and amazing and exactly where I want to be.
“There is in all this cold and hollow world no fount of deep, strong, deathless love, save that within a mother’s heart.” -Felicia Hemans
