I'm ever so happy to introduce you to Tim and Kesh Coulson. I first came to know these two through Tim's beautiful photography portfolio and Kesh's maternity series. Tim and Kesh are based in Sydney, Australia and are soon to be new parents. (I love Kesh's cute baby bump!) I highly recommend you explore their blog, here.
1. She's a printmaker (and has a degree to prove it). I took photos of her printing one day, here.
2. She has a serious weakness for McDonalds. Big Macs are her favourite but she also loves Cheese Burgers and Chicken Nuggets.
3. Soon to be Mum (in like 14 weeks).
1. People who know me very well understand that my attention span is minimal. I regularly stand up and walk around mid conversation. I have too much energy...or something.
2. I play piano.
3. I used to live in Japan.
The night we met, she was wearing Adidas three stripe track pants and Dunlop Volleys. For some reason, I always remember Ugg boots and not Volleys. Kesh remembers it right.
I had seen Kesh before but never like this. She was beautiful, without trying. Every word we spoke together became more significant.
I spent the next four weeks driving up and down the freeway to be with her. And when I wasn't with Kesh, her voice whispered to me down the telephone and into the beginning of new days. Four weeks after we met, Kesh flew away to the far reaches of Canada.
Kesh would be on the other side of the world for twelve months and almost immediately, I knew I was going to marry her. Life without her didn't feel like it should.
Two months after Kesh sailed back into the country, we were engaged. One morning, before sunrise, we walked across the sand and stood in front of the ocean. Kesh's Nan and Pa's home as our backdrop. I asked the most important question of my life. She said yes and we celebrated with eggs benedict and hot chocolate.
Two months after that, we were married—forever.
