This is ME 360

I have chosen to write a 365 photo journal. I have chosen to do this for a few really good reasons. I was inspired to try during a resent retreat I joined. My reasons are.

1. Growth, I am forcing myself to think out of the box and watch light, and movement.

2. My children grow up way to fast.

3. I want you all to get to know who I am, just as much as I get to know who you are.

4. I want to write about things, people, and places that inspire me. What makes me tick, why it makes me tick. For me it has always been a feeling, so my challenge is to show my feeling through my lens.

5. Lastly, I hate being in front of my camera, and I hate selfies. I figure if each one of you shows me who you are, full of love, fear, beauty, pain and vulnerability, I can show you who I am in the same light.

I learned a few tricks along the way.

I got the call early in the morning: Mama had been experiencing some mild contractions during the night, and she was allowing her husband to sleep in because she wanted him well rested for the day ahead. She was going to hop in the bath, and would keep me posted.
