Celebrate is my word this year and I plan on rocking it. Not in the traditional sense that would come to mind but with Goodwill thrifted treasures to grace their beds upon returning home from school. Or little poems in a book I found there just last month for every holiday you can imagine. Glow stick parties are returning to this house this year as Uno games are getting perfected. I have one planned tomorrow night, in fact!
My big camera is going to make more appearances for every day life. Those moments I want to just freeze forever or at least go through them in slow motion. So thank you Nikon D7000 for allowing my frozen moments. That leads me to these images. These are the first of the new year, at the end of the month already, and finally I have taken out my camera for everyday moments.
Those little wispy grass pieces have called us all once to come run through them before but this time with my camera. Next time I go back, my camera is coming again too. And so this is my definition of celebrate. Isn’t it the simplest? It really calls to mind one of my favorite quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She spoke frequently of life and all its simpler moments.
I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
