this past weekend i decided to challenge myself – the challenge was to keep my camera readily available and to capture our weekend. there was nothing special going on, no specific reason to take pictures, and that is why i wanted to do this. i love the real, raw, true moments that are so quickly forgotten. i want to grab those and hold on super tight because my memory fails me so often… and i don’t want to forget. so, i did just that. our weekend: complete with coffee, lots of playing, games, sword fights, running around with the dog, watching tv, helping daddy clean the car, reading, naps, errands, baths, and bedtime. it was nothing special, and yet, it was oh-so-special. i sure do love these people (and animals!).
