The photo itself isn't technically perfect - as I slowly work towards fine tuning my skill in the art of composites - but our evening spent looking at old tractors and farm equipment followed by creating this image together, made for a perfect day 🍁🚜 .
'Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams' - Ashley Smith .
We've welcomed the cool evenings, cozy flannels and beautiful leaves with arms wide open; and are crossing our fingers for a longer fall season than last year 🌻🍁🍂🌾 .

Transitioning into Week 32 with our maternity photo taken at 28 Weeks🌷 . Our first day of Week 32 began with what should of been a routine checkup with the gyno. It quickly turned into a full 24 hour hospital stay, with frequent stress tests to monitor baby's heartbeat, a long ultrasound to assess her stability and quite a few blood tests that left both of my arms all bruised. Fortunately for us, baby passed her ultrasound and blood tests with flying colors and mention of an emergency delivery was dropped. . I am happy to report that we've now made it to 33.5 weeks with no more scares and baby's heart rate has consistently improved. We are still frequent visitors to the hospital and gyno, but that's just part of our story this time around. Our fingers are crossed that she stays put for at least another couple of weeks and that all of these 3am work nights I've had lately won't pop her out sooner🤞 .
