thirty-six squares // hi, i'm still alive
hey! i'm still alive. i know it was starting to look otherwise in this little slice of the internet. but i can assure you, these feet are still kickin' & this heart's still beatin'.
...and, actually, beatin' extra hard because i'm currently in seattle and this city does something unspeakable to my heart. i've been up here since tuesday for one of my oldest pal's weddings. let me say that as fun as photographing a wedding is…being in one is about a thousand times better. oh, and she's the one who encouraged me to give robbie a shot while we were in high school…so i basically owe my marriage to her. more or less.
& baby girl gonna gush now. this has been one of the best -- and i think, most important -- trips of my whole life. i needed perspective. i needed to recalibrate. i needed to be surrounded by girls, and cradled by god's love & this trip has been all about that. i'm feeling full and fresh and like me. for the first time in awhile. i left my camera at home this trip & brought just my iphone & instax -- and i'm so happy for that. as much as i love snapping away, it was lovely to be so unencumbered, to have one less thing to worry about, to keep track of. because sometimes it's enough to keep track of yourself, you know?
