the coolest story

Today, my brother Jack, who passed away three years ago, would have turned twenty-nine.  I miss him every single day.  More than anything, I'd love to just have a long talk with him, and feel his arms wrap me up in a big hug.

Just two days ago, the coolest thing happened...

I got a phone call from Joann, the mother in law of my close friend Anna.  Joann and her husband live a few streets over from my parents.  Joann called to tell me that her husband had found a letter addressed to my parents, from my brother, postmarked February 27, 2003.  Over nine years ago!!  I guess their mail slot is in their garage door, and they had found the envelope stuck in the garage door header.  Isn't that crazy??

I feel like our family has experienced a sweet little miracle, just in time for celebrating my brother's birthday!

My favorite part is the end. :)

Happy birthday, dear Jack!  Happy birthday to you.

troy & megann engagement portraits, downtown okc

I first met Troy several years ago in a LifeGroup {Bible study group} at our mutual friend Anna's house.  Troy has always been the nicest, funniest guy, and I just knew he would make some girl very happy some day.  Well, that girl is the absolutely stunning Megann.  I can still remember meeting Megann, and being completely impressed by her inner and outer beauty!  She started attending our LifeGroup, and it was soon more than obvious that she and Troy made a perfect couple.

I am thrilled with how their engagement portraits turned out, and I am looking forward to shooting their sure-to-be awesome wedding in a few weeks!

Just a side note here for brides: I was super-inspired by Troy and Megann's sweet wedding invitation!  It is so indicative of their style, and definitely helped me choose some locations that I felt were perfect for them.  So, when choosing wedding details, remember to make everything very representative of the two of you as a couple. :)

Troy & Megann~
You guys are such a HOT couple! :)  I absolutely loved doing your engagement session.  Thank you for choosing me as your photographer.  I am so, so happy for both of you!

Love ya!
