Saturday morning. Cinnamon rolls baking and organic breakfast sausage sizzling on the stove top. Latte in my cup, full. I slept later than the kiddos this morning and came downstairs to find them curled up like cats together on the couch, wrapped up in a blanket, Saturday morning cartoons on the tv. I kissed their sweet heads and walked past them, still marveling at the blessing of this out of the corner of my eye.
I open the kitchen window. Water my jade. Home wabi-sabi. We are on spring break now. The whole week a blank canvas. One big exhale for all of us. This past week has been full of photography, which I am so very grateful for and excited about. Wrapping up projects, starting new ones. The world of contracts (when did I grow up?) and a totally failed attempt at creating a new photography site, an ongoing mess since the beginning of the year. I finally came to my senses and realized that no, I cannot host what I want out of a professional website on Blogger just because it's what I know best and what's easiest for me to navigate. So I put my big girl pants on last week and am navigating uncharted technical web territory, creating a new space, properly. I simply close my eyes when I am positive I can't go on and imagine the land of web design being like a wave. I let it roll over me and wait for it to pass. I resist the urge to call technical support wanting to learn this on my own. Then I go on. And this is how I am building a once and for all photography website that I know I will love and be proud to give to those who invite me to photograph for them. Business wabi-sabi.
And now for some things I'm currently loving...
This artist. I particularly love Sweet Memory. It's a lovely song - they all are.
Recently made this and thought it was delicious.
Reading this with the boys. The day I bought it I was having coffee with my friend. We both laughed and shared our stories of reading it as a child (we both vividly remembered).
Wishing you and yours a beautiful week.
