“It’s kind of like this Peter Pan fort in some guy’s backyard — he built it himself”
This is how Jenn described the first location of our session last weekend… and it could not have been more accurate because when we arrived and I saw it, I was at a loss for words as to what was before us: an enormous tree fort, spanning the woodsy backyard of a stranger she had met years before. Filled with artwork and carvings, its bridges and spiral stairways often creaking under the weight of us. They let Dyce loose and like a pack of Lost Boys, we chased him throughout the maze of wood and weirdness. We followed up our time in the trees with something a bit more civilized, and then took off running barefoot in a sun-soaked field (not a splinter in sight).
To say this is one beautiful family would be an understatement. And I’m not talking about their model-worthy good looks. I’m talking about the outrageous amount of love they have for each other… the insane amount of love they have for their little boy; the way they make parenthood look so cool, and so easy.
And it’s Jenn’s words that complete them… it’s her words that captivate us, that make us laugh, cry and dream along with her. She writes, and with her words we get to ride shotgun for a small slice of their adventure.
And with that, I am sooo excited to announce that I have partnered with Jenn on a pretty amazing Giveaway!! She’s got all the details on her blog, so head over to The Fortunate Plight and check it out!!
