|PHOTOS BY EVA MARIE SMITH
The day has arrived and it's sayonara Swell Rio for the Fines! We've been going nonstop for the past four weeks trying to get everything together for this move and my mind is absolutely zapped. It's not often that I struggle to express what I'm feeling in writing, but when words fail me as they do right now, I'm so incredibly grateful for the photos we had taken a few weeks ago by the talented Eva Marie Smith. We'll treasure these images forever—as they're a precious reminder of our Texas adventure.
P.S. I was hesitant to get these taken and include Beesly because I always envisioned our "first family photo" would include Tripp too. If we were going to get pictures taken that symbolized our time here, it needed to include everyone. While we never got around to it and quite literally put it off until the final week (Oops!), I wanted to point out that the photos were taken at the same location where we spread Tripp's ashes and threw tennis balls in his honor this past February. It feels like we were all together in the end anyway.
