Meag and Jose met in Guatemala when she was volunteering with a non-profit working with kids. He was working as a clown and entertaining children with juggling and origami and magic. Somehow that magic caught her eye and they fell for each other quickly. Their story is one of waiting. And hope. Two different countries, two languages, two cultures all holding two hearts that longed to be together but were waiting for a Visa. And finally, they are, and their love has multiplied in the world with their son, Keats.
I had the pleasure of spending an enchanting summer evening in their sweet home watching their simple life unfold. Time in the garden, time laughing and playing with Keats, eating dinner together. These are their favorite things about their life together right now, and I’m thankful I got to document it for them so they have a record of this time forever. One of my favorite things about their home is that it is filled with objects from their travels around the world- paintings and textiles and colors and patterns that reveal the texture of their history and their hope for future travel. And there are feathers everywhere.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all. –Emily Dickinson
