{Project 26 – ‘color my world’}

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!
