The Ten Photos That Got Me Here:  #5:  My favorite family photo.

I fell in love with Justin Porter because he made me want to be a better person.  And as we approach the 10th anniversary of the day we met (At a church 4th of July Picnic!) his love doesn’t just make me want to be a better person . . . being loved by him these last 10 years has actually made me better.  Then we had our daughter, CeCe, and it felt like I’d never be able to do or say enough to tell her how much I love her.  Instead, I am going to spend every single day trying to fill that bucket as much as I can.  So this photo, taken early in the morning on a beach trip last summer when she was 8 months old, and the wonderful way my twin loves rest with their hands up by their heads, and the way I can see myself in her eyes, is my favorite family photo.  But really, it isn’t this photo that got me here . . . it is these two people.  Because love just makes you better.
