My Three; miss M (the big girl), son T (the little brother + big brother), and baby E (our newest little one, 5 months). I hope you enjoy these photos! I'll be sharing more soon!
My Journal; this is where I share my personal blog posts. And for the year of 2018 and 2019, I am excited to share a photograph a day; my project 365, posted weekly. As a mother of four, this space is so beautiful to me. How quickly little ones grow and change, so I appreciate being able to look back through all these posts. They bring joy to my days, and I hope to yours as well.
I am so thankful for photography; probably a cliche thing to say, but it really is true! The adventures, the memories, and the love that I have captured over the years of motherhood are such a blessing to me. It's a gift.
Through all our exploring over the last several years, a few locations have become favourite's to us. They have been places of joy and created memories, so we love to go back year after year. The rock they're sitting on is one of those spots, so we make a point to take their photo together there every year. Maybe next year their baby sister will be sitting up there with them.
So quickly time passes, and life can stay exactly the same, except for the continueing growth of a child. I feel this need to make my time more worthwhile: to learn, experiment, to grow. To grow in my character and giftings, and in my ability and purposefullness to parent well. Always making the choice to be present, and to feel joy and peace in this beautiful chaos of life, that can be seen as more overwhelming than beautiful if I allow it.
This beautiful stage of life that I am in. It is demanding, captivating, challenging, and fulfilling. The role of motherhood. The fleeting moments of childhood, both sadden me and fill me with so much joy.. This girl, her smile, her joy; my first born.
This was one of the most beautiful, spontaneous evenings and it was just perfect. Oh, summer, how I will miss you..
