So anyone who really knows me, know that I don't have a favorite anything, but I am passionate about certain things. First and foremost, Jesus. What he has done in my life, is nothing short of amazing, and miraculous. I am so not worthy of any of it. But He saw through the muck and saved me anyway.
Second, is my family. Oh my goodness I love love LOVE them. Can't say that enough.
Third, music. It saved my life more times than I would like to admit.
Fourth, Pictures. This is huge. Taking them, making them, creating them. If my house ever caught on fire, we have a family plan that says grab the kids and my external Hard Drive and get them to a safe place. Seriously though, I would save my girls above any of it, but if it was easy to get to, it would be in my hands!
Each picture to me is a key to a box of moments to unlatch and capture the atmosphere and smell of that very time. There is a picture of myself and Cambria where she was bathed and lotioned and smelling so good. I remember laying on the couch with her and talking and suddenly with those big round brown eyes, she smiled the sweetest grin I have ever seen. I love that picture. Because that same sweet smile is what I have come to love to see today. I also have a picture of Casi, where she is in my favorite spring dress. She was about 6 months old and propped against a tree and It was the first time that I realized, that when Casi smiles...She smiles from the top of her head down to her toes. If you can imagine, her ears perk up and eyebrows are arched and every ounce of her body is anticipating this one grin. Again, its the same smile that I see today. I have created memories for myself and others for over 15 years with my Canon and I love every moment of it. Periodically, I'll post some of my favorites along with stories. It is truly the gift that continues to give...
