First I was dying...

First I was dying to finish high school and start college. 
And then I was dying to finish college and start working. 
And then I was dying to marry and have children.
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work. 

And then I was dying to retire. 
And now I am dying... And suddenly I realize I forgot to live.

We would love for you to post a picture that says 'soft focus' to you on our facebook wall any time during the month of March.

the ordinary, the every day :: I Heart Faces :: March, 2015

ordinary day

I used to be able to capture a hundred ordinary moments a day.
And then, well, my ordinary child turned into an ordinary teenager.

I have two teenagers now and they are the best. However, they don't want me taking pictures of 
their laundry, 
their dinner 
or their homework.

They put their hands up.
They frown.
They yell.

I miss them being little.
I miss the ordinary (and happy) moments of childhood.

I took this shot of a little darling eating spaghetti at a charity fundraiser my friend Briana hosted recently. 

Ordinary moments are my favorite kind to capture. 

Life is beautiful.
