Birthday weekend was a success! If the picture above is any indication, I had such an amazing time. On Saturday, I went wine tasting with friends, and that evening, my husband and went out for dinner and a movie. But by far, my favorite day was Monday. Our little family took a day trip to Kings Beach in North Lake Tahoe and spent time in the water, sun, and sand. Watching our little splash around in the water and dig in the sand made me grin from ear to ear.
Our day of fun brought to mind a comment I heard last week, that people spend too much time documenting their lives, that they need to step from behind their cameras and participate. While I agree that being present and in-the-moment is the most important, I feel like there is nothing more in-the-moment than appreciating the pure joy of watching your son play with his dad. I had so many moments on Monday where, yes, I was behind the camera, but it warms my heart so much to see them playing together. To see them laughing and being silly. The times when they are sharing pure love…that’s what being present feels like to me.
Call me crazy, but these are the moments I want the opportunity to capture and save forever ❤
