Ash in the Rose Garden where we were married a year later.

Three years ago, Ash and I met at a photography show she had with her sister Beth, and we have been together since (really, we moved in together right away). One year later, we were married, then moved to New York, then a year later we drove cross-country to Alaska. Three years ago, Ash and I never really thought about being parents, but 48 days ago Ash gave birth to the most amazing baby boy Adams ever.
Watching Ash give birth to Elliott and the way they have interacted together since the birth is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. It's like they have a little secret together that only they fully understand. I can see their special connection in their eyes when they're playing "tummy time" on the floor, feeding, singing and, this morning, dancing together. Ash is an amazing mother who I know would punch a moose in the face to protect her cub. Happy Mother's Day, Ash. I love you.
