Hi! I'm Holly Brimhall, a newborn photographer in Gilbert, AZ. I am the mother of 4 and a lover of ALL things baby. This blog is where I share the life of my family and favorite pictures of my newborn photography sessions.

Seriously so blessed.....

So, I'm sitting here laughing, because I don't want to use this title...and associate it with THAT blog...and I wonder if SHE will find this post...and read it....and make fun of me, like she does of everyone else. But whatever...I'm me. And that's how I feel. So that is going to be my title for this blog post - and I'm sticking to it. So there! {I kinda just wanted to stick my tongue out and tilt my head to the side, just a bit...but I'll refrain}

Brett and I headed to our favorite bed and breakfast for the weekend (it's actually the only bed and breakfast that we've ever stayed at...but we do LOVE it!) Thursday, I picked Brett up from work around 1:30, we headed to the airport, caught a quick little flight to LA, and within a few hours of leaving town we were checked in to The Inn at Playa del Rey. They upgraded us for free to their suite - complete with the hugest tub I have ever seen in my life - easily big enough for two. Okay, enough said. TMI? Sorry!

Basically, we just really enjoyed being together, cruising around town and up and down the Pacific Coast Highway, shopping, eating, lounging, reading, snuggling by the fire, hanging out at Universal Studios, and exploring Santa Monica Pier.

While we were driving along the coast, with the top of the convertible down, holding hands, listening to the radio, Martina McBride's song "Blessed" came on. I just sang and sang, covered in goosebumps...feeling like most of the words fit perfectly for me...right now.

I get kissed by the sun
Each morning
(especially since I still have not made curtains for my bedroom yet)
Put my feet on a hardwood floor
I get to hear my children laughing
Down the hall through the
Bedroom door
Sometimes I sit on my
Front porch swing
(maybe someday I'll have a front porch...and a swing on it)
Just soaking up the day
I think to myself, I think to myself
This world is a beautiful place

I have been blessed
And I feel like I've found my way
I thank God for all I've been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

Across a crowded room,
I know you know what I'm thinking
By the way I look at you
And when we're lying in the quiet and
No words have to be said
I think to myself, I think to myself
This love is a beautiful gift

Repeat chorus

When I'm singing my kids to sleep
When I feel you holding me
I know

Repeat chorus

I feel like I've found my way...like my priorities are in the right spot...like I'm doing what my Heavenly Father wants me to do... So, today I feel....seriously, so blessed. It's a fact!



Brett...trying to be chubby...like Fred. Whatever! He eats like a horse and doesn't gain a pound. Me...I look at a piece of bread and gain 5.








Already planning our next little getaway....can't wait until January!

Lisa 9:53 AM  

Wow, I will have to keep that place in mind for my hubby and I sometime! Also, I was wondering if you sell your snapshots?? :) My husband first proposed to me (I say first, cuz it was unofficial) on the Santa Monica pier, right there! I've been wanting to find a photo of the pier. I would love a shot in black and white. Did you shoot others, from other angles? And, again, would you sell it?...Just wondering. Please let me know lisaowens99@msn.com. Thanks!!
