We planned this trip to Arizona to celebrate Seth finishing his second year of medical school and to spend some much needed time together. I was also five weeks pregnant during this trip. Aside from being tired, bloated, hungry, and feeling the most fragile I have ever felt, I felt strangely empowered being surrounded by nature and hiking mountains. It was a humbling feeling knowing there was a separate life growing inside me and how my body was no longer just mine. Knowing how important and significant that life already was. We spent those days talking about how excited and terrified we were. Discussing our fears, hopes, and prayers. The future seemed so unsure and held more gravity to us knowing that we were going to be parents. I love looking back at these photos and reliving this significant time in our marriage with our little girl growing inside me.
