day 1 {taking a break}

Last week I posted about stopping what I am doing to play. I decided taking a few pictures and hanging them on my wall isn’t enough. Don’t get me wrong, those images mean the world to me and have their significance. I just decided to take it a step further. I am taking a workshop by Michelle Black on a photography forum called Clickin Moms (I’ve mentioned them before). I have already thought more about who I am in the pre-assignment than I normally do in a year! As I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep I thought about what I struggle with most right now. I struggle with my kids growing and getting older. I look forward to new adventures, but I worry that this time with them will go too fast. One of my biggest fears is regret-regret that I didn’t make the most of this time. I literally jumped out of bed, Josh thought I went crazy, and told him my idea. I really need his support these next couple weeks. So, what did I do? I wrote a note…

We are going to be ‘unplugged’ for the next couple of weeks. Today is day 1. I expected major fits, but I only got a little muttering. BUT, it is only day 1… On the lighter side, I just love the little finger prints captured in this image!

Here is another image I shared in the pre-assignment. One day the toys and crumbs are going to be gone and I will be sitting on the couch looking at this corner remembering what it used to look like.

  • Natalie - What a great idea! We should try that at our house. Hope everyone is good at your house. Miss ya!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle - What a great, great idea! If I wasn’t on a computer all day for work, I would never look at one (OK Maybe not never, but hardly as often as I do). I so detest electronics and going out for dinner to see entire families glued to their phones instead of talking.ReplyCancel
