I’ll admit that sometimes the task of taking a photo every single day for this annual series can be difficult. Life gets busy, days fly by and there’s always a million other things to take care of. But that’s why I do this series – to make myself find the daily moments that I can keep forever. Like this one. I’m sad to say I don’t have many photos of Matt with our kids, mostly because I’m so focused on family time when he’s home that I don’t remember to take photos a lot of the time. Which is not a bad thing – focusing on family is important obviously and being IN the moment instead capturing the moment is a lesson I’m learning too. But in the end, photos are what we have left. And so that is why I love this image with my whole heart.
