We are Morgan+Wes Atkinson, wedding photo/video duo by day (and on most weekends) and do it yourself-ers by night (and on the few weekends we have free!). We’ve been happily married since 2011 and we’re now expecting the arrival of our first child, a baby girl, at the end of Septemeber. We bought our first home a little over a year ago ( a 1953 Ranch Style Home) and we love spending our free time fixing her up and doing things ourselves!
This blog is my love letter to our children. The one’s we have and the ones we will have. I want them to know who we were before them, who they made us, and who we will become in the future. I can’t think of a better legacy to leave them than a clear outline of the way I was feeling the day we signed the papers for our first home, the day we found out we were expecting our first baby girl, the afternoon we brought them home from the hospital and had to figure out how to care for a new baby, or the day we experienced a devastating loss in our family. Maybe they’ll learn from our mistakes, maybe this will be a road map that they can either follow or avoid. Either way, wherever this life takes us, I’m happy to know they’ll have SO MANY THINGS to look back on. When our oldest girl is waiting for her first born she’ll know what I went through each week- what helped and what didn’t, and what she can expect in her own pregnancy by following along with mine. I don’t do this for me or you. I do this for them. So they’ll have something real and lasting to remember us by when we’re no longer here and they have to figure out life without mom and dad.
