consider this page a little box that holds bits and pieces of our little story. finding beauty and peace in the ordinary moments of motherhood. and learning daily, that "sometimes i only need to stand where i am to be blessed" | mary.oliver
How lucky am I that for my first 10 on 10 we would be at the beach? Needless to say, this one was pretty easy. The hardest part was paring it down to only 10 shots and also deciding whether or not to include phone pictures. (I did not this time.) There are many times when you’re around sand and splashing water that you would want to avoid bringing your camera… for that reason I also have many iphone pics from this day. But I’d like this project to help me grow in the genre of lifestyle photography. I’d like it to be habit-forming too, forcing me to bring my camera along to places I usually don’t and to naturally “see” the shot as my 35 does, not only my phone.
Mommy, I can’t wait for sledding. (Me either. I’m a winter girl!) I’m a candy cane boy…. And an eggnog boy.
Finn loves to sing this song to his little brother. (Unfortunately, I’ve asked him to sing this song one too many times in an attempt to actually get it ON to tumblr, so this version’s a silly one)
10 on 10 trial run— I just threw some pictures into this post to see how Tumblr worked. I’m going to start a 10 on 10 project starting in September. (10 pictures on the 10th of every month.) The purpose is to capture the story of our family’s day- the more ordinary, the better. So many parenting cliches have already come true for me: “parenting is the hardest job there is.” “they grow up so fast.” Now I want to tackle this one: “the days are long but the years are short.” They say it because it’s TRUE! The days are so long sometimes, but when I look back, I can’t believe how quickly we have gotten to where we are. I want my children to remember what their childhood days were like, and in the same way, I want memories of these days too. In all their messy, chaotic glory.
