Amour éternel, everlasting love. That’s exactly what I had the honor of capturing last Wednesday.
Kaitlyn and Emmanuel have been dating shy over a year now, within that year, there was a flame ready to expand into a deep, passionate fire. I was fortunate to get to spend two days time with them to view and experience what that passionate fire was.
On our first day together you couldn’t tell what was right from wrong. We headed out on our journey to find that our first road block hit, literally. So we journeyed through a different course to reach our beautiful, mud filled destination. Kaitlyn, feeling optimistic, urged us to try and fight mother nature and go ahead with the Engeekment Capturanza. (You have to love Kaitlyn’s optimism.)
Trudging out in the sprinkles that occasionally stopped, we finally stopped, not because the sprinkles diminished our spirits, but because the hurricane of rain trailing after the sprinkles did. Staring at one another in disbelief, we finally decided it may be best to remove ourselves from the rain and return to the vehicles, notice the plural.
As Emmanuel exited our lovely parking space, Kaitlyn couldn’t, she had parked in the mud. After tire turning, standing-in-the-rain thinking, human lunging, and mud shoveling, Emmanuel decided to push her vehicle with his own vehicle. Low and behold, Emmanuel was now, as well, stuck in the mud.
Luckily, a man from afar saw us and called his Pastor and his muscle gang to come and pull us out. HOWEVER, the day wasn’t saved yet, as Emmanuel stood discussing what had just happened to the Pastor and his muscle gang, Kaitlyn noticed steam and transparent, green drippings coming from Emmanuel’s front.That my friends, was radiator fluid.
Once we were finally pulled out of the mud and arrived home, the sun decided to come out. What a lovely wasted day indeed. Be that as it may, there was at least one thing all of us benefited out of the day.
While Kaitlyn and Emmanuel basically had Couple’s Building the entire day, facing things to come in their married years, instead, in their engagement year. I was spoken to through Kaitlyn, not once did Kaitlyn ever frown or seem grim. Kaitlyn was filled with smiles and an unconditional joy. I had the privilege to witness an authentic love between the two, working together as opposed to arguing and wasting time. So was the day wasted? That’s for you to decide. :)
My encouragement for you today is don’t only not sweat the small stuff, but don’t sweat the big stuff either. Who needs all that mess?
Look forward to Day 2 after I get back from my New York Mission Trip—Happy Blogging :)
