To Dave; From Erica: FivePine Lodge Pre-Wedding Engagement Photography

March 10th, 2011

Dave,

Before you, I had never laughed so hard, loved so much, or cried because of pure happiness. Being with you has allowed me to grow into myself- to change and develop in to the person I am today. The meaning that you and the kids have brought to my life cannot be quantified, cannot be put in to words-it’s immeasurable and greater than I ever thought possible.

With you, I have my best friend, my confidante, my soul mate, and the incredible father to the children I have been so lucky to have gained and to the children we have not yet made. You are my rock, the person I can say or do anything with- my backup vocalist and the other half to my standup act.

Without you, I’m not whole, because you are an extension of me and I of you. You are not just the person I have chosen to spend my life with, you’re the person life chose for me.

You and me- standing together facing the world- now and for the rest of our days.

Forever,

Your Erica

A neighbor cat was super curious and wouldn’t stop following us through part of our session.  You can’t see him but he’s there somewhere!
