{24 minute} love

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Tuesdays have a hectic start.

P has dance class at 9:00.

B sleeps until 9:00.

Waking a sleeping baby goes against every bit of mumma instinct I have.

So we always start Tuesdays with this crazy game of how long can we let B sleep but still be able to get out the door and to dance class on time. P, bless him, has learned that it is best just to smile and nod and help out wherever possible on a Tuesday morning.

Today has been no different except that B has revenge pooped his way out of our first attempt at a morning nap which always makes for some real sadness when he gets put back in his room for a second attempt. And P has been a one man wrecking crew.

So now, as B finally hums himself to sleep and P sits in the basement for 24 minutes of Curious George, I am loving my morning americano and some solitude.

18 minutes left...

{blog} love

Sunday, October 16, 2011

So it seems as though everyone has a blog these days and, come to think of it, this will actually be my second! My intention with this blog is finding, focusing on and exploring something that I love each day while the other (http://www.firstlovephotography.blogspot.com/) has only ever really been for posting photos. Why I'm not just turning that one into this one, I'm not sure. I guess I like the idea of a fresh start for this project.
And what is this project specifically to me? I guess a few things. One of them being to take the time in my life to actually just reflect on what I loved about the day. And you may be wondering why I need a blog to do this. Why can't I just love and appreciate the day as it happens? It's not that I'm ungrateful (fact: sometimes that's exactly what it is), but most times it's just that my days fly by chasing after my two boys, P and B, and suddenly I'm lying exhausted in my bed, about to fall asleep and realize that I hardly even remember what all went down during the day! I like to think that this happens to a lot of mummas and that I am not alone?!?
Another hope for this blog is to make me haul out my camera more regularly and just play with it outside of the scheduled shoots. This is something I used to do a lot of but find that the big ol' digital slr is much less lovely to haul about these days when I am already a pack mule for the boys, their snacks, toys and gear! Maybe as this goes on I'll start using the point and shoot more? Maybe I'll find some ridiculously clever and easy way to haul my big camera? Maybe I'll quit being lazy about hauling it? Maybe I'll splurge on the Fuji x100 camera I am currently coveting? Who knows, but at least this blog will make me commit to finding out!
I also want to use this blog as a creative outlet. I love photography, obvi, painting, dancing (not well) and now am going to try out some writing to go with that. I think, however, that writing is one of those things that we all sort of say to ourselves "hmmm, doesn't look so hard" and then we try it and discover that it actually is very hard to do very well. So the writing here could either become a high or a low in my blogging...I'll just try to keep it real. Yo.
And so, with out further delay, I give you my blog.
