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.
