At the end of 2016 Josh and I got pictures taken by Jacob of Brumley & Wells. It was an anniversary shoot of sorts (we are coming up on 2 years!) but mostly a celebration of many things: our move back to CA, a full year of living together, Josh finishing flight school and getting his wings, and so many other amazing things that have happened in the past year.
Our year in Texas was unforgettable and although I never want to go back, it was such a special time in our life. For the first time in our relationship we got to live together, to see each other every day instead of every month, to have meals together in person instead of over FaceTime, and spend our birthdays together instead of celebrating weeks later during our next visit. The things that most couples take for granted, we never will.
We wanted something to really remember this time so instead of doing the big Christmas trip to Hawaii that I wanted, we did a long weekend in San Francisco and got these pictures taken. I will definitely cherish them forever and they will always remind me of this simple and beautiful time of life before deployments and distance come between us again.
