I am typically not an over-the-top emotional person, but when Morgan and I had lunch together to talk about her future with Samuel, I cried....right there in the restaurant. You see, I have known Samuel since before he ever was. His mom and I have been best friends for most of our adult lives. I saw him in ultrasounds; I sat outside the door when he took his first breath. Ok, I will stop. Needless to say, tears seemed appropriate since Samuel is my honorary nephew.
I will fast forward before I cry again. The three of us explored the trails at the beautiful Ijams Nature Center which is were Samuel and Morgan went on one of their first dates. I love that Downtown Knoxville has this amazing nugget of urban wilderness! To say that I am looking forward to their December wedding is a bit of an understatement. Thank you, Samuel and Morgan, for entrusting me with this task of being your wedding photographer. I promise to wear waterproof mascara on your wedding day.
