Life is so busy.
Things happening everyday.
Schedules to follow.
Play dates, lunch dates, and errands fill up the space in between.
The other day I was tired.
Tired of feeling like I had seconds to breath and regroup before moving onto the next thing.
Then I decided we needed a day off, well when I say "we" I mean, Bean and I, Hubs still had work and Buggie school.
But Bean and I lived in the moment.
Which for us meant some super silly photo moments. When Em started Embrace the Camera, I knew it was important, but honestly the gravity of it has grown more on me with each and every post. Will Bean look back at these photos of his Mom with fond memories, I sure hope so because thats the goal here folks. These moments when Mommy put on silly masks with him and made funny faces in the computer, he now has these photos to remember it was not all Mommy dragging him around all day.
Then we went outside for a snack picnic. Where we shared grapes, hummus, and cherry tomatoes. It was just us and the birds flying high in the sky. Life moves around us, stop and watch it sometimes, you might learn something about it.
Because I sure did on this day.
I learned I need more of these days in my life.
It left me refreshed with a new sense of love and worth for my family.
My favorite moment of our day, was laying on our blanket in the shade of the tree, pointing to the the clouds as they slowing passed by us. And just listening, listening to my little boy ramble about the clouds, birds, Toy Story, Cars 2, and dinosaurs. These are the moments that make life sweet. Moments I will always remember and now we have captured for my little 2 year old to look back on and know his Mommy took time out of our hectic life to just be.
I linked up with Em.
You should too, promise it is SOO worth it.
