Audrey and I connected over our shared interest in homeschooling. She’s a seasoned homeschooling mom, barely missing a beat when this little nugget was born, while still finding time to be supportive of newbs like me. Even though I’ve ended my homeschooling journey for now, we remain friends and I feel honored to be able to capture these sweet moments for her.
I have to admit that I was a Pride virgin. It’s not that the Pride events aren’t important to me, I’m a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it’s just that I’ve never had a chance to go. As a teen, when given the opportunity to travel to DC for their Pride event, I was banned from going. When I was older, something always got in the way. I’m so glad that this was my first event! Cumberland Pride was beautiful, bursting with love and acceptance, and I cannot wait for next year! Check out their Facebook page for more or read about the event here.
Oh, the first blog posting! There are a lot of directions I could go, but I’d like this post to be a tribute to my family. To my partner David, our children Audrey and Miles (not to mention our fur family): Thanks for being there. And thanks for tolerating having a camera constantly shoved in your face.
