When my daughter was 3 months old I started a blog. I did a really good job on it for quite a while. Then I noticed a trend, each year the amount of posts got smaller and smaller. I would say I was going to start up again and I never made it past a post or two. My old blog actually reminds me of my journals I kept from the time I was young. There are always entries that start out by saying, "I can't believe it's been so long since I have written" or "I've made a decision to be better about journaling." They were always followed by another entry made about 6 months later. The same statements were always the first line of the entry.
I am starting to get the bug again. I have so much I want to write about. I want to write about the pictures I take and the joy I feel when I work with a family I really connect to. I want to start writing about the crazy things my kids do that I should discipline, but secretly laugh about. I want to write about the mundane things along with the profound.
Today was a pretty good day. My son had Superhero day at school. I was thrilled when he told me he wanted to go as Captain Underpants. I love his confidence and his sense of humor. I love the fact that he is growing out his curly red hair and doesn't care that it is poofy. I just love him!
While he was at school I worked on editing for a couple hours with my daughter at my side. She was busy playing the Ipad and constantly telling me we needed to go have lunch at Subway because they had $5 footlongs.
I had to turn my Anti-social program on to get my editing done in a timely fashion (do you know how hard it is to get work done on a computer when facebook and pinterest are only a click away?). Luckily, I had last night's episode of the Bachelor to listen to while I smoothed skin and sized images.
Here is a taste of what I worked on today...
