A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2016.
The three of them / This is from this weekend just before kickoff. My kids made my dreams come true by wearing Virginia Tech clothes and standing in close enough proximity for a photo.
When Tom asked me to marry him, we went hiking and he proposed at the top of the mountain at sunset. The entire hike down the mountain was an amazing, surreal time, and we spent the whole hike talking about our future. At some point on that mountain the thought popped into my head, “This means Tom will be the father of my children!”
On that evening, when I imagined my family with Tom, force-dressing our children in orange and maroon every Saturday was exactly what I hoped our future would look like.
