Project 52: Week 2/52

In some sense, I feel like a Project 52 is actually more difficult than a 365. I feel like there's more pressure to take a really good picture for each week. For the past week, I've been thinking about what would make a good picture for week two. I'm sure many of you have seen the article/pictures floating around of the frozen bubbles. If not, just google image "frozen bubbles." However, I didn't get my butt out into the freezing cold, early in the morning to take the picture I wanted. I hope to before winter is over, but this blast of cold has come and gone before I could do it.

So, as the week is winding down, I decided I simply wanted to take a picture of my every day. These moments are so fleeting and I cherish them. Now that Hannah's getting older (9 1/2 months!) her interaction and understanding of what's happening around her is growing by the day. She claps for Michael and Kelly, she dances to any sound of music, she does things that she know will make us laugh, she chases her fur brothers and giggles when they get in trouble. I love every moment.

So, this morning, after breakfast, I decided to bring my camera with me upstairs as we did our morning chores before her nap time. It perfectly captured a moment. A fleeting moment that will so quickly be forgotten.

Ironically, after taking this picture, I read this article. It's a quick easy read, go for it. It's a beautifully written piece about how being a mom is enough. How our every day moments are enough. It sure made me feel better about the dust and dirt that has so quickly piled up this week. Mostly because I chose to read books and play with my little girl over vacuuming and dusting. I'm okay with that, and it's worth it.
