My House Is Too Quiet and This Family Is Sweet

My house is so quiet…almost too quiet. The dead silence gives room for my mind to bounce around amongst all the feelings inside it. Feelings of jealousy, longing,  guilt, sadness. I want to put everything away and make it right. There is so much I don’t understand.  Why isn’t it easy. Why can’t we all just agree to disagree and live in happiness. It’s a crying shame.

I apologize if my soberness is exhausting and cumbersome.

But this is a place for me to let it out.

So slap me across the face, tell me I’m wrong for saying and feeling what I feel. But it’s ME and it’s REAL

Oh… how I want… how I long… for something. Something sweet. I can smell the sweetness and rub my hand against it’s smooth skin. I dream about holding you in my arms and feeling your warmth and love. Pacing barefoot in the night and staring at the moon while holding you in my arms. A sweet kiss on your soft cheek. A bond that is forever inseparable.

A baby

I will be patient. I will try my hardest to put the jealousy and guilt away. I will try to love what I already have more. I will try to untie the knot in my stomach and ease the pain. I will turn to that which is more important.

….for you

Enjoy this perfectly sweet family, shot on all film. xoxo

    Very well put. The jealously monster always seems to be lurking in my house. The comparison monster too. Christian reminds me this life isn’t meant to be fair. And I still have a hard time remembering that.

    Beautiful images! I remember photographing her dressed in a bride’s dress YEARS ago 🙂 It was a model shoot I did with Kristen (a mutual friend). Anyway, you did a lovely job. Also, don’t worry my dear, it will happen when it is supposed to. I remember feeling anxious when we didn’t get pregnant right away with our 2nd. Lots of emotional feelings went around. Its great you can express how you feel, and hopefully it will help get you through. Hugs!

    I really love this shoot. Great job Kali. I’m sure this family adores these photos.

    I’m sorry you’re aching for a baby right now and not able to have one yet. I’m sure the time will come. It’s so hard to be patient when we want what we want right now. I hope it happens soon for you.

  6. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing,
    it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

    buy youtube subscribers cheap is obviously best for your youtube affiliate marketing

  7. This is the perfect web site for anyone who hopes
    to understand this topic. You understand so much its almost
    tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that has been written about
    for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

    Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting
    with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .
    Any tips? Cheers! twitter

  10. I do not even know how I stopped up right here, but I thought this submit used to be good.
    I do not understand who you’re however definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.
