[193/365] Honesty... Sometimes (and maybe more than the occasional sometimes), I don’t love that I’m raising my girls in the same rural area that I grew up in. I’ve bounced around within the North State, but still ended up pretty much right where I started. And the one time I had serious plans to move out of state, the universe stepped in and firmly planted me (kicking + screaming) back in California. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little heartbroken about that opportunity for my little family... BUT, alas, here we are. And on the pretty major upside, I suppose, I know the ropes to growing up country and it definitely is rewarding to offer that to my girls. Even in our home state of California, we could never quite find the comforts of our hometown anywhere else - not on the coast, in the Bay Area, the Napa Valley or the mountain towns I came to love. Clearly, Mila doesn’t seem to mind the long, private roads that take us to all the best places.
Trent has a love hate relationship with fishing. He loves the boat rides and catching a fish but the moment the fish is out of the water he starts screaming to throw it back in.
Reason why I try to keep my camera within arms reach most of the time: my daughters play dress up and decide to put necklaces on each other. Not a big deal moment but it was really cute 💕👑 (and yes I took this while laying on the couch lol)
The next few months will be all families all the time, but for today I’m just going to share one more senior. Because I can. So I will. 😊
There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness, and terror involved in this kind of madness. When you're high it's tremendous. The ideas and feelings are fast and frequent like shooting stars, and you follow them until you find better and brighter ones. Shyness goes, the right words and gestures are suddenly there, the power to captivate others a felt certainty. There are interests found in uninteresting people. Sensuality is pervasive and the desire to seduce and be seduced irresistible. Feelings of ease, intensity, power, well-being, financial omnipotence, and euphoria pervade one's marrow. But, somewhere, this changes. The fast ideas are far too fast, and there are far too many; overwhelming confusion replaces clarity. Memory goes. Humor and absorption on friends' faces are replaced by fear and concern. Everything previously moving with the grain is now against-- you are irritable, angry, frightened, uncontrollable, and enmeshed totally in the blackest caves of the mind. You never knew those caves were there. It will never end, for madness carves its own reality 🖤
Welcome to our #self_love_sunday_loop
I have teamed up with a group of other talented artists, whom all share a passion for photography. We all agree how important photography is to us, but also the importance of seeing ourselves in our art. We are encouraging each other to dig into our creativity through a series self portraits. We hope you follow along with us on this journey.
Next up is the lovely: @briviglianco •

Not my mood this morning! Hubby has roday off and did the school/kindy prep and run (seriously best guy ever!). And I'm still super excited about winning seats to @rowetimson and @deb_schwedhelm classes at @illuminateclasses and a bag from @3anniescamerabags - I really am a lucky girl today 😀 Hope you all have a wonderful start to the week 🧡
Oh yah we have fun underwater... I LOVE seeing what the kids come up with!
