My One year Blog-a-versery

Wow!  It's been a year now since I started this blog.  I don't think I ever thought I'd stick with it to be honest ;)  It's proven to be a whole lot more than I imagined it could be.  I was surprised actually at the affect it's had on me.  Having this space, and finding the discipline to post regularly for the most part - it's more than that.  Something has changed for me -  a different kind of inspiration that just seems to grow and grow.  Blogging makes me look at my life in a different way - looking for the positive, or the learning.  Finding the words to express, or the photo to illustrate, or just my latest creative project  - somehow it has changed how I look at things.  I love that I can combine all the things I love into this blog - so many ways to express myself - and that is just so good for me.  It's one thing to ponder parenting and well anything really, but expressing those thoughts in writing takes that to a different level - one that I'm enjoying :)

I think my biggest love at the moment tho is that because of this blog I have been working on developing my interest in photography - and it feels like it's taking off into something that feels big : )  I'm quite in love with my camera lately - even tho I long for something a little more capable.  I get absolutely giddy over catching a shot just right, or lately learning a new technique.  It's very inspiring.  Who knows where I'll go with it - the possibilities seem endless.

This morning I was drawn outside, camera in hand when I saw the light - that wonderful morning glow....I was utterly captivated - seeing everything in a whole new way.  I love the intense focus when lost in a creative moment.  The drive to create that must be fulfilled.  So. Very. Alive.

  1. I love your photos :) For myself, I find that photographs are the capturing of that moment and the emotion that YOU are experiencing. Then you are able to share them :) Happy Anniversary!
