My life changed overnight. What once was normal is now the exception. Part of me yearns for the familiar and another part of me revels in the newness, but I’m OK. I have my family and that’s what really matters. Every day I meet someone new or see something that surprises me and I love it. I feel like I’m developing skills and learning things that will make me a more interesting, if not better, person. Who I am becoming feels like the person I want to be. Life isn’t always easy or perfect, but it is always an adventure of learning and growing.
I’ll be honest. I haven’t taken that many photos lately. I’ve taken plenty with my iPhone, but not many with my film cameras. I wish I were taking hundreds of photos a day, but that’s not my reality right now, and that’s OK. I know there will be a time and season for that, but right now is the time for me to make some sacrifices for the bigger picture stuff.

I’ve been somewhat introspective lately and have really enjoyed taking self portraits reflective of what I’m feeling. It’s fun and therapeutic at the same time. Here are a few of my recent Instagram portraits:
