Puzzles start out looking mixed up and incomplete. With enough time and patience, you can find the right place to put each piece. Some don't go where they look like they would, from a distance, they look like the perfect shapes to fit into one another but end up not fitting at all. After finding enough right pieces you start to make sense of the picture. When the picture is complete- it looks less like a mess and more like a masterpiece.
This is how I've felt about life...especially relationships. It took a handful of "wrong pieces" before God revealed the right piece. Some seemed like they would fit, but our lines didn't mesh. I often get frustrated that we don't get to the see the whole picture all at once. But ultimately, I should be so thankful. If I knew what would come next, I'd make different moves to avoid certain pathways. It's a sweet release and lesson in trust for me to realize that it's not up to me, and while the pieces are still being put together, I just need to trust.
Lauren, of Lauren Zaffos Photography, was nice enough to let me come second shoot with her! We had a fun time, Tayler was working it with her Kate Hudson smile (so jealous!) i just had to grab this last shot of them, it was too funny to pass up!
