This is 4 years as husband and wife and I wouldn’t change a thing! We got married on this night in SLO four years ago and now we find ourselves living here and we couldn’t be happier with what this last year has brought us - our son Atticus (the best thing we’ve ever done) then we sold our house in the LBC, bought a house in SLO and Ryan started a new job. It’s been eventful to say the least but we are paving the best for our little family.
Ryan and I met a little over 18 years ago and if I knew then what I know now I wouldn’t have waiting 9 almost 10 years to start dating him. He is my better half, the humor that has become a part of my own vernacular, an amazing daddy that truly makes my heart burst and my best friend who I’m happy to stay up all night with to take care of our son and just the same wake up at 6am to get on a trail before anyone. I love you baby ❤️
Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful and amazing momma who is now a grandmother! Thank you for showing, practicing and teaching me what a great mom is. It’s my favorite role as an adult and I’m so thankful and honored to share that title now with you. Love you
* THIS IS 4 MONTHS *
Atticus is full of smiles, bright eyes, a stare so fierce as he takes in the world, a jiggle and wobble that keeps Mom and Dad on their toes, and a desire to stand when he’s not even near mastering a crawl. My heart has never been fuller or loved as hard as it does for my little man.
4 months marks his first adventure outdoors and first national park #zionnationalpark on a list of many more to come. This time also marks the end of my maternity leave - it’s a bitter sweet moment for this mama. He has though now the next 4 months with Dad and I could not be happier. ❤️
——- My heart, my everything! ——- Thank you beyond words to @brandiwelles_photo for capturing such a special moment of my journey as a mother with my little guy Atticus. It’s hard to believe already how much he’s changed since these photos, so thank you again for capturing them. I so look forward to you capturing more of my family!
Love to daddy @_dorkusmalorkus_ for making me one happy mama. You are the most amazing father to Atticus and I see you in him in so many ways.
🎄A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS 🎄 * Love from the Mortensens *
On 12/17/18 at 9:55pm my world forever changed, the feeling of love held such a different meaning, I looked at my husband and cried tears of joy, excitement and victory and told him ‘I love you - we did this’
I am beyond happy to share Ryan and I welcomed our son Atticus on Monday night and life has been pretty perfect since.
To many more nights of figuring out a routine and embracing every single moment of first for this little one.
