*New* - Photo Challenge Week One :)

January 05, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I debated for a while on what I wanted my "New" submission to be...and that means I procrastinated and didn't photograph anything. I've so gotta work on that. So, today I realized I was about to miss my very first week of my challenge and I forced myself to photograph ... and what I have makes my heart smile so much. :) **Photo Nerd Note: I used my favorite lens (50mm 1.4) with these and although that wasn't new, I focused more on a lifestyle approach that I'm falling in love with. I love photographing everyday life and I think I'll cherish these photos more than the posed ones any day :) I also tried a new editing style...little more matte old school finish :) Feedback is always welcome! 

Alli Belle was given the super popular loom bracelet making thing (I'm all about the technical name! lol) for Christmas by her sweet MiMi and we both have fallen in love with it. I joke that I love it more than she does but what I love the most is that it gives us yet something else to do together and to bond over. 

She still gets pretty frustrated with it but its something new and something fantastic for her to learn. Not only do I love that we're doing these together, that we're sharing & learning (& laughing when our masterpieces fall apart!!) but that she wants to make these for everyone - for me, her teachers, her friends, etc. I pray lots for a giving heart for my only child who has more than she could ever want and when she wants to spend an hour making a bracelet and then give it away, that makes me very happy. Its the little things right? <3

So new for me is a new way to bond with my daughter. In PJs on a rainy, cold day. And learn about giving and sharing together. <3
