Today I am greatful for...

...many, many things!  But especially for the much needed 5 inches of rain that Houston and the South Texas area experienced over the weekend.


I am also thankful to my cousin, for allowing me to capture beautiful memories for him and his bride on their wedding day.


Thankful for the stunning double rainbow that was cast over the wedding grounds just prior to the commitment ceremony.
 

Apparently, a double rainbow is a symbol of transformation.  Well, hello!?!  Yep.  It is also considered a sign from the cosmic universe that something great is about to happen and that one good thing will lead to another.  Pretty cool, eh?  I sure do think so.

I am so very thankful the wedding location had a tree full of rope swings!  For it allowed Layla a place to sit and swing for hours on end, while her momma captured memories and moments to last a lifetime.


Thankful for the cooler weather that these showers ushered in...it almost feels like Autumn.  Almost.

{Reminds me of our dearest Lisa, the Bumpkin on a Swing.}

And last but not least, I am so thankful for family.  Without them...life just wouldn't be as full.
