I’ve been away from my blog for so long I feel like I could easily write a book. A lot has been going on. Good things. Not so good things. Photography and blogging were put on the back burner. Every time I’d look at my camera collecting dust on the floor, I’d wonder if I still remembered how to take a picture. The thought was a little depressing. Just when I was starting to improve and feel comfortable with photographing, I
had chose to put it aside. I’d like to say I had no choice so I wouldn’t feel so guilty about it, but it wouldn’t be true. I had to prioritize and let’s just say it fell to the bottom of the list. Along with blogging unfortunately. Without the two, I’ve been feeling a little lost. Don’t get me wrong, the break has been rather nice too. I know confusing right? I don’t get myself sometimes. My hiatus, though, gave me more time to confirm, yet again, that I am definitely not an extremist. Never have been. It may work for some people, just not me. I wasn’t happy dedicating every spare minute I had to photography and blogging, and I wasn’t happy removing these things completely from my life either. Yeah, I’m more of the happy medium type.
So here’s my happy medium. Photograph when I feel the want. Blog when I have something to say. It’s that simple. The minute I feel like it’s not simple anymore, than I’ll have to reevaluate.
And just in case you’d like to know who has been monopolizing my list of priorities these days (or for the last 2 and half years I should say), that would be this kid.
This is her imitation of a camera.
This is what I get when I ask her to smile.
Can you stand it?
It’s always been about her. It always will be. I am a very happy and lucky mama!
I also wanted to link up the following picture, my favorite of the week, to the following photo challenges.
