So light differentials are cool... 😎
Back in Boston after a quick visit to Orlando for my other super amazing I-can’t-believe-I-get-to-do-this-for-a-living job. But you know I couldn’t help myself from yelling “wait Liz stop, one step to your left and two baby steps back” upon seeing this bad boy of a light beam. 😍😫
Also me: “does anyone have a red evening gown in their suitcase? Anyone...? Bueller?”
PHOTO OF THE DAY
This week's theme: Autumn (did I say I love Autumn?)
“Leaves grow old gracefully, bring such joy in their last lingering days. How vibrant and bright is their final flurry of life.”
― Karen Gibbs
these past few weeks have been rough & tough with capital all of the letters. i had a few weeks where i nearly felt like i’d been a carton of tea thrown into the Harbor & left on my own at work (really just some fire drills that all needed immediate attention...at the same time), attempting to balance a social life of going on dates (i’ve since decided that i’m cooling it on that too), preparing for a fashion show that i’ll walk in on thursday, trying to make it to the gym, but failing miserably, and to top it off, getting sick & still having responsibilities — one of which included changing my drivers license and officially becoming a #masshole . my little heart has been overwhelmed, overworked, & so so tired. to those that have slipped through my grasp during this time or that i was rude or hangry to, i’m sorry for taking out my slight “caged without a car to escape” feelings and other emotions on you. y’all don’t deserve it, BUT, ya girl’s heart got some time in the fall colors and near the water, which always brings me such tranquility. i mean, look at the scenery!!! i’m grateful to be loved not only by a god that’s greater than all of the above mentioned things, but by a family near and far that support me in this new phase of life. to my new friends who will bring me medicine, watch Netflix with me, kidnap me & bring me to the ocean, sing in the car with me, laugh so hard at me, hug me tight, & those who listen and fight FOR me & WITH me like we’ve known each other far longer than we have, y’all are so so cherished. my New England life would be far less rich without you in it. so here’s to going to bed early from a well rested weekend on house arrest to entering a brand new week — can’t wait to make it great! make sure y’all #loveyourmelon this week. like the mental health part of it too. // real fab photos by @nate__mac — thanks for capturing all of the weird & wild & for listening to me gab in the car.
The day after our twins were born, my husband and I were sitting in the hospital, snuggling with our two newest little boys and got a call from our daycare. Our oldest son who was 2.5, had been running, fell and sliced his chin open. He was probably going to need stitches. I was immediately shocked into the world of having 3 children and that feeling of "I can't be in two places at once and meet everyone's needs at the same time" and wanting so desperately to be able to go to him, but clearly, having just given birth, unable to do so. .
My husband left the hospital and when he walked into our daycare to pick him up, he said that he looked so big and so small to him all at the same time. Purple popsicle juice running down his chin, mixing with his cut, putting his hands out to be picked up and needing to be comforted. He was still so little, yet, suddenly, so much bigger than he had been the day before. It's a matter of perspective, I know, but it's also the song of motherhood. The time goes by, so so fast, and one day, you realize that your babies are no longer babies and your heart aches for the time that's gone yet simultaneously fills with hope for their future. What a wild ride it is, raising little people.
2018 is my year to be "Intentional". This year I am commiting to an artistically, technique driven photography project to push myself outside my comfort zone & into my inner artist. •
