Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle & bustle of life that we zoom past the simple moments that mean the most & make our life the most beautiful. It’s moments like little ones on the counter making guacamole, asking to please be a part, to scoop the avocado, squeeze the lime juice, & to add a dash more salt. As I quietly stepped into Melanie & Lain’s world & documented their quiet times the weight of being excepted on social media & the to do lists slipped away. I watched as mother & son created memories together. I laughed & played along as we ventured into creeks & explored new areas. I listed to the wisdom of a mother & thought about my new life as a mom & how I want to create those sweet, quiet moments that will tie us together more. Today is just reminder to slow down & soak up the moments that seem small because in reality they are the most important minutes you’ll spend. . . the ones that mean the most & will last in the hearts of your children forever.
Melanie, Thank you for sharing your sweet life & precious boy with me that day. Thank you for being an adventurous mom & knowing it’s not about the bright white of your jeans but the moments you share with Lain. May there be many many more quiet, memorable moments for you two. – meg
