Week 49, Gratitude | 2014 Project 52

February 5, 2015

“I’m thankful for a lot of things. I have my health, two beautiful daughters, an amazing husband and together we are living a life full of happiness. But I wanted to take a photo of something not so obvious for this week’s theme.

I am so grateful for the help, support and love of my in-laws. They would do anything for us – and they do on a regular basis. We thank them all the time, but it never feels like enough. This woman came to our house just last weekend, while we were away, to shampoo our carpet. She spends time with the girls so I can get work done, she helps with suppers and groceries, takes Sofia to bowl, changes Grace’s dirtiest diapers, and so much more. She never complains, and she is always there for us.

I honestly don’t know what we would do without them xo”


The following photos were taken in October 2014. Vera and Eugene wanted some photos with the girls to use on their Christmas cards. They had moved into their new house last year, so I thought it would be perfect to just take the photos there in their front yard.

Seriously, there are not enough thank yous in the world to show how much we appreciate these two people. We will never be able to repay them for all they have done for us. From all the little things like cleaning up our dirty kitchen while we tend to the girls, to the big things like babysitting and completing our unfinished basement so I could have an office and studio for my business.

I have learned from them that we do things like that for our family when we can because we love them. We do it no questions asked and with no expectations, because we are family and families are there for each other. I will do the same for my own children.

We are so lucky and I hope that they know we appreciate them so much. No matter how much I say thank you, it never seems enough. But once again, thank you Vera and Eugene for everything you do for us. We love you!
