I wanted to take a moment to thank Timothy Eugene for this time, talent, kindness, and friendship. It was over a cup of coffee in a shop in Old Town Alexandria, where I had the privilege of meeting Timothy and where this concept originated. After putting together ideas for this shoot, both of us couldn’t wait to execute our vision.
Timothy, these photos are simply breathtaking! Your work and talent speak for itself. I also want to thank you for being the kind, genuine person you are. Your support has meant a lot to me. Keep doing you, because your work, skills, and character are appreciated by a lot of people! Thank you again for these outstanding photos! Josh and I will cherish these forever.
Today is my husband’s birthday! Happy 104th birthday, my love! You don’t look a day over 89! 😉
When I met Josh, I was immediately taken back by his heart and character. It was the first thing I noticed, the first thing my heart desired, the first thing I fell in love with.
To this day, it still leaves me in awestruck. It still persuades me. It still pursues me.
Josh, this is what I see and know when I look at you…
It was the first thing I noticed.
The first thing that I was drawn to.
I knew it was precious.
I knew it was exceptional.
I wanted to know and hold onto every part.
It seeks after divinity.
It syncs with adoration.
And opens to diversity.
Its purity is esteemed by all who know him.
Its beat mimics joy.
It’s rhythm pumps with courage.
Its tempo reminds me of calm, smooth waters.
How I am captivated by it.
How I want to reflect its nature.
How I want to hold onto it for eternity.
But the one thing that I will always admire and love;
Is that it’s a heart that seeks after God’s own heart.
And because of that, it bestows favor.
His heart is grounded.
His heart is rooted.
His heart is consistent.
How undefiled it is.
How incredibly wise.
I learn from it. I grow from it. I admire it.
My love, I am yet human.
One who has countless faults.
One who is undeserving of such attribution.
My words may scar it.
My actions may trample it.
My selfishness may afflict it.
But even so, I will live to protect it.
I will live to defend it.
I will live to devote myself to it.
I’ll chase it.
I’ll fight for it.
I’ll always yearn for it.
Because I have studied its ways.
And you have revealed every part to me.
And even though I know its secrets, its weakness, its guilt.
It will forever mesmerize me with its spirit.
It will always astonish me with its goodness.
And it will endlessly captivate my love for you.
May our lives be knit together forever.
May our souls be intertwined.
May our love never cease in this home which we have built.
For with you, I am strong.
For with you, I am fearless.
Your love and affection are twin pillars, without whom I could not stand.
Together we are one.
Together we withstand.
Together, my love, we will live out God’s plan.
Happy birthday, my love.
