nostalgia



I was looking through old photos on my laptop last night and realized three things:
1. My kids are getting so old.
2. I can't believe how young I used to look.
3. My life has been very full and blessed.

We've made a lot of really cool memories over the past thirteen years with our kids. And I'm so happy that I made it a point to pick up my camera often to catch a still frame of the moment.

So even though my kids are not so keen on me taking their photos anymore, I'm still going to sugar-coat my pleas to them and snap whatever pictures I can in those rare instances when they give their permission.

Cheers to making and capturing memories!

Amber,
I cannot agree with you more.
And your photos are simply beautiful.

isn't it fun to look back and then remember? Time seems to move so slowly while you are mothering and then blink blink, you wonder where all the time went!!

Just an FYI ~ when I leave a comment....I also get an email saying that the comment couldn't go to your email? Not sure what is going on there...but just wanted you to know! :o)

We have to ignore our children sometimes. My 13 year old son is a guitarist too, so those photos resonated with me.
