Wow, what a whirlwind few weeks. My babies left to go on a 3 1/2 week adventure up the west coast with their Granparents in their RV. Yes, that’s not a typo – almost 4 weeks. I miss them tons. It’s strange not having them here with me each day. :( A big part of my inspiration has left and that’s hard on this momma. But I’m keeping busy with the overwhelming number of house projects/to do’s we have on our list. So, when I was reviewing the theme for this week’s project 26 my heart fell a little. Why? Because my kids ‘color my world’ and they aren’t here with me. My world is muted right now without them. So I brainstormed and thought and finally found some ‘color in my world’. Some I couldn’t photograph – like me and my husband. No, not in that way. I just didn’t have the time to photograph us together. That’s the one thing that’s been wonderful about Jeff and I being ‘childless’ right now – we’re completely dating again. We can have uninterrupted conversations at dinner. There’s time to be silly, light-hearted, work on projects together, have quiet talks where we can stare into each others eyes- then burst out laughing, and reconnect like we should. In that sense it’s been amazing. I’m trying to take advantage of the positives. As I’m trying to organize I keep running across Brielle’s art. She’d be happy with just a pile of paper and drawing tools. I melt every time I go through a stack of things and find her sweet work. FaceTiming and having grandma text pictures of the kids to me each day has been a treat. In that sense there still ‘color IN my world’.
Please continue through the circle – one of my favorite photographers is up next. Valeria Spring of The Red Balloon Photography – pure inspiration!
