I'm so, so glad that I take these pictures. In my mind, I've almost stopped calling them my "Photo A Day" and instead I refer to them as my "Photo Diary."
Snapshots of every day. Little things, special moments. Whatever it is that makes the day special, unique - or completely ordinary. Snuggles on the couch, foggy windows looking over snow, uncooked lentils. This is what my life looks like.
With the chaos and laundry, trying to get dinner on the table and get to appointments on time, with running out of milk just when we NEED milk and almost hourly tantrums - it can be hard for me to see and remember all the pretty little things that I love. I don't mind that my bed isn't made in these pictures. I don't mind that toys are on the floor. I'm able to point my lens at something lovely and blur out the mess and count my blessings. One day at a time.
And (unsurprisingly) most of those pictures and blessing come in the form of two blond tornados and a very tall handsome man named Travis.
Sun Jan 27: The boys in our family stayed home sick today... but only one of them was actually sick. // Mon Jan 28: Grey reaches for my phone the moment I set it down to pick up the camera.
What did your week look like?
