So you know how parents of young children keep a book on their first year of life? Each month, they note the things that baby is loving and/or hating and/or learning that month. I think it’s a great way to remember what that time was like. (I saw a meme that said “If my memory was any worse, I’d be able to throw my own surprise party.” I think this is especially true for people like us.)
So next point: why don’t we do that for us? Why don’t I mark things I love in each season of life? Doing it. You should too.
Lauren, 327 months:
- happiest when she’s sitting on the couch, editing photos with FRIENDS on in the background, watching Mina pull toys out of her toy basket
- favorite foods include dark chocolate caramels with sea salt, Pizano’s pizza, peaches, and chile verde burritos (still doesn’t cook regularly)
- so excited to be starting to learn film and shoot styled sessions
- trying to work up the courage to leave Willemina for the weekend to attend a fancy pants wedding in Monterey with Daniel
/// Meanwhile, each time I head back to NJ, I aim to shoot. This past May we were back, just in time for my sister’s first wedding anniversary. Plus she had a dress she needed to use for something which is a fabulous excuse. Plus my poor family gets gipped on photos since I live far. Plus Dad cleaned up our back property incredibly since I moved out so it’s more than worth photographing. Happy year and some, Tim and Shelly! ///
