The emotions that I am feeling right now are surreal. With his parents down here it just feels like they are here visiting and helping us with things that we need done around the house. It doesn't feel like they are here to spend precious moments with their son before he flies off to a country so dangerous to protect the country that he would give his life for.
Anyway, in the title of my post I stated that I need your help. And I do. I really, really do. One of the local photographers here is hosting a Facebook contest. Basically the baby with the most votes get a free photo shoot.
This is both amazing and generous all in one. I love her work--and Leo and I have talked about saving some money to have her do a shoot for us. It's pricey and being a one income military family we don't have a lot of extra cash laying around.
It's SUPER easy to vote. You like her page which is Lisa Campbell Photography. After you are a "liker" of her business you click on like under Madelyn's super cute picture. That is it! The contest runs through the 15th of September before it is over. Votes won't count unless her photo is "liked" on Lisa Campbell Photography, so if you are voting just make sure that you like her picture. This is the photo that I used:
This is her photo that I used...so freaking adorable!!
I typically don't enter any of these cute baby photo contests because so many babies are cute and it ends up being who has more friends, etc. But I would love nothing more than to win a session with Lisa. I want to surprise Leo while he is in Afghanistan with pictures of the girls. Could I do it myself? Sure. But she is a professional photographer...which is freaking amazing.
Don't feel like you have to vote...I don't want to "make" anyone do anything that they don't want to do. But if you have one minute to do the steps above, I would love you forever. Forever and ever.
I am sure I'll be posting more this week, but I'm honestly just trying to take in my honey and remember everything about him...it's about to be a long 6 months...
