Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

We were treated to 5th row seats ... right in front of where the pitchers warm up! Of course, my son was jealous. I brought home a ton of photos for him!

A photoshoot at an arboretum? You can imagine the extra fun I had with that! Stories abound, to be sure, especially with the rain and attempting to get an outdoor shot by a little waterfall ... but no time now!
I tried a new lens for macro today. It took a little getting used to, but I ended up liking it and snapped away at hundreds of flowers.

The most awesome shot I've witnessed! His best friend whirled around the corner aiming at the mirror ... and WHAM! We all laughed until our sides hurt.

6 Years ... These two have been close friends for SIX YEARS! It's hard to believe we've been in Augusta that long. And the reality of leaving is starting to set in with my oldest boy. His best friend leaves in 2 weeks to be with grandparents for the summer ... so this is our last chance to spend time with him before we move!
Sometimes it just takes a moment to look up and you realize something beautiful is waiting quietly with a gift. And while it is visible to all, it feels like an intimate gift from heaven just for me. It's a moment that captures my attention, takes my breath away, and makes me realize that no matter what is going on around me, something much bigger and more spectacular is silently awaiting discovery. And for that moment, I stop and I see and I breathe and I smile for I feel like God has reminded me to look up.

As my little one called to me that she was ready to go outside, I had to catch my breath just a bit and tell her "WAIT RIGHT THERE!" She was posed strikingly similar to my mother's favorite childhood photo of me.
This is me ... a LONG time ago! This was one of my mom's favorite photos of me ... so you can see why I grabbed my camera as my own child appeared by the front door with an umbrella!

It was the last performance of the year ... and in Georgia! I'm really proud of my young musician, he seems to have plenty of talent! I heard these songs "hummed" for weeks and weeks and weeks ... so it was wonderful to hear the real deal!
An excitable little friend was also at the concert ... little did we realize that their older siblings were also in the same class!

We drank slushies from REALLY BIG straws ... the napkin sign was still there and I couldn't resist a photo!
And the little skater was more of a pro than the rest of us (as I type with one arm after breaking the other not long after this photo was taken)!
