Our In-Home Maternity Shoot

We have less than a month to go until we meet our sweet, sweet baby. We could not be more thankful and more thrilled to become parents to our rainbow. We’ve been running around like crazy prepping for this baby. My third trimester has FLOWN by because everyday is jammed packed with things to finish before our little one gets here. Our nursery is about 90% complete, we just have a few little things here and there. We just had our baby shower this past Sunday which was an absolute dream come true. It took a team of people to accomplish and took a lot of prep time but the end result was absolutely something out of a movie! I can’t thank my friends and family enough for all their love and support. (Might put up a blog post about it. What do you think?)

While running a business, prepping for our baby, finishing house projects and trying to find time for our family and friends, Wyatt and I have forgotten about JUST US for a minute there. The only time I can think of where him and I can just breathe, cuddle and relax is right before bed and Sunday mornings. We’ve gotten a little distracted by all that’s going on in our lives to give our relationship a little TLC. I get so emotional when I think about how Wyatt and I have had the pleasure of being just him and I for 9 years. I’m so thankful for every memory with him and the journey it took for us to get right where we are. Now we embark on a new chapter of our lives and no I’m not crying while typing this, you are. Everything is about to change, it’s not just going to be us TWO anymore and there’s something so bittersweet about that.

Wyatt, I love you. I love the special time we’ve had together before becoming parents. I love every bit of our love story so far from our late night phone conversations when we were just 14 years old, to that time by your pond in your backyard when you first told me you loved me, to the car rides where we blasted the music and sang our hearts out even though you and I can’t sing at all, to that one time you proposed to me in Times Square, to our first dance at our wedding, to our big road trip across the country and struggling to pay rent in NYC, to the birth of our angel baby boys…to right now. I’ve loved it all. As we close this chapter and welcome in a new one, I just want to say that I love you beyond words and I cannot wait to see you as a daddy. You’re going to be so amazing at it.

BIG thank you to my dear friend, Nicolette from NicoletteYoung.Com for capturing our last moments as just the two of us in our home. We are so blessed to know her and call her our friend.

With love,

Karissa Marie

We Never Go Out Of Style// 6 Years <3

Every time he cries, I cry. Even if we fail, we fail together. I’m more than positive that I am luckiest girl in the world because of him. Wyatt has seen me crumble to the absolute worst version of myself. He’s stood there with me through the deaths of my two best friends. He wiped every tear of mine through every stage of depression. He has calmed my overactive nerves when no one else could. He has no doubt seen me at my worst but more importantly he’s never judged me. He has never given up on me. He has never once walked away. Even when I’ve lived in the dark he somehow manages to see beauty in me. I can’t put into words what this man means to me. I’ve known him since he was just a curly headed chubby little boy with braces. I’ve had the privileged to grow up with him. Now I get to love him as the man that he is. It’s weird saying that because up until now I’ve only known him to be a kid. Because we were just kids, age 14, when we fell in love. I’ve known him as a baseball player, football player, Tire Tech, Personal Trainer, Realtor, and now, Store Manager. He’s worn many hats and has many titles but my favorite one of all is the guy that I get to come home to: My Best Friend.

We don’t have gray hair yet but I look forward to growing old with him. We are in no rush to get married, for those of you that ask us on a daily basis. We’re choosing to enjoy life and each other as we are. Marriage is in our future, trust me, but we love who we are right now, right this second. Whenever we get bored of that then maybe we’ll get married. But until then we will continue to love each other unconditionally, dance in public, kiss until one of us has to pee and watch Netflix in our jammies all day.

Happy 6th Anniversary to the person that I can’t live without and also to the person that irritates me the most. I love you Wyatt. Thank you for loving me like you do.

I’m so lucky.


With love,
