Blown Away

Day Two

“What We Play With”

This morning this link came through my reader (from Maria) that really captivated me.    A man named Jamie Livingston took a polaroid picture a day, from March 31, 1979 until October 25, 1997 (ironically his birthday and the day he died.)  I went through the compilation, briefly, and will continue to do so.   I actually went to the day I got married, some of my birthdays, the kids’ and Michael’s birthdays, too.

What a poignant collection of photos from this man’s life.  It really blew me away and made me really think about what I am doing here, with these projects, with this blog, with my camera, with my words.  Not only am I capturing smiles, rainy days, sunsets, toys, animals, myself, and so much more, but I am documenting our time here.  My time here.  Someday I hope my “vault” of pictures can be looked at and reflected upon in the same way.  Someday I hope this inspires [you] to start your own daily photograph project.   I have tears in my eyes just thinking about my children-as-adults looking back on these days.   I hope they are blown away, too!

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.

Weekly Winners XXXXXV

This Thanksgiving we were visited by Michael’s mom, her husband, and their dog (also named Sadie, or Sadie II.)  It was wonderful to see them and have them here.  Not only that, but my mother-in-law is a FANTASTIC cook and she cooked her full non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner (the exact meal that she prepared the very first time I met her; Thanksgiving of 1994).

She had sent Michael the grocery list and we had everything that she would need, on hand, for the feast.  He even prepared some of the things like boiling the chicken for the corn bread dressing and chopping up the tomatoes, onions, and peppers for her relish.  Our pre-Thanksgiving dinner was also courtesy of Michael. He made us some awesome Muffulattas and cheese dip to go on the side.  Scrumptious, I tell ya, scrumptious!

The Winners are many this week; I hope you enjoy this peek into our Thanksgiving Holiday.
