I am feeling lucky today. To be here for this. Nothing unusual about today. I am outside, with my boys, watching them play. If things hadn't changed, and my love and I hadn't made this choice, for me to be at home, I would be at work. I would be helping little people-counseling, chatting with my work friends (I'm a talker) or on the phone with a parent. But I'm not. I am right here. Witnessing their childhoods firsthand. I'll admit, I'm not always distraction free...I am still a photographer, with clients and editing and photo shoots. I'm seeking balance there. But I need to put them first. My 3 guys. I don't get today back. Once it's gone, it's gone. Savor it. Even the chaos. Breathe it in and be grateful for it.
It truly is a labor of love each day to search for just the right image(s)...the ones that represent our daily lives...edit them, organize them, write about them. What a wonderful experience and an amazing amount of growth this year for me. It has been a great journey but one I am not jumping into again just yet. I am going to take a breather, let the dust settle and let inspiration find me and lead me to my next project. For now, I will continue to post about our lives but only when I feel it.
