Through the Years - I always fan out the pictures from previous years' when I update the frames. I laid out their portraits and admired what great people they have become. Each one of them growing into their best selves.

Special Sunrise - I was full of eager anticipation when I went outside with my morning coffee. This was the kind of day that was going to be a life changer. The sun was just beginning to rise; a beautiful, full pink sun rose behind streaks of blue grey clouds. I felt validated, even the heavens knew how important this day was. On Saturday, I met my half brother for the first time.

Joy Hangover - I didn't want the visit to end, and I'm so glad it didn't. We ordered take out and ate off of paper plates with plastic utensils. It was felt so good, so easy, in so many ways. This morning I woke up with a smile on my face. A Joy Hangover.

Resume Play - Back to life, on Monday the kids went back to school. After school, I took The Little Man to the library for the first week of his Lego and Literacy program. He loved it. At dinner, the table was full of chatter. All three kids were eager to tell us about their day.

Moonlit - I was watching television in my room, when I noticed the moon from my window. Knowing how quickly the sun and the moon can change, I raced. I grabbed my camera and tripod, forgot my coat and shoes, tripped over the cat and went outside to get my shot. It was worth it. Straight Out Of Camera. Yeah baby.

Cat's Eye - There is something wrong with my sweet girl's eye. For the past few months, she has been developing spots in her eye. It doesn't seem to bother her though. Anyone know what it might be?
