Living a Life

For this month’s challenge, I wanted to get into the frame myself. Not because I think I look the best, or particularly want the world to see pictures of me, but because I want my children to know I was there. And these photos aren’t necessarily amazing technically but I feel like it is important – I was totally inspired by this blog: A group of 18 photographers, who are moms, get themselves into a photo with their kids once a month and post it. These are amazing photographers and I just love looking at their posts! You need to check it out. 🙂


Our theme for this “Living a Life” series is this quote:


“Instructions for living a life. 
Pay attention. 
Be astonished. 
Tell about it.” 

― Mary Oliver


These two little girls keep me busy all day, and I am constantly astonished, when I pay attention, by the things they do and what individuals they are, even at such a young age. I love to see their personalities emerge and try to document their story through photos. They teach me every day and I am so, so grateful I get to be their mom!





And here is a little taste of breakfast at our house: fairy costume, Valentine decorations, chocolate milk, crafts and all:
