There is something infinitely beautiful about everyday life. It's the small & simple things that make us who we are . . . the small & simple choices that add up, one on top of the other, until our values & priorities are defined. Slowing down & capturing our lives as they are instead of just showing the "pretty" or idealized moments, gives us a glimpse of what is truly important to us. It offers the opportunity to see beauty all around us, even in the seemingly mundane moments.
This 10 on 10 project gives me the chance to capture life as it really is. Time moves so quickly, & before we know it, it has disappeared with so many intimate & precious moments lost with it.
Here's the gist:
10 photographers take
10+ photographs spaced over
10 hours of a single day
posted on the 10th of each month
8:00 am - unhappy start to the day. Will was throwing a tantrum while in & then out of the shower.
9:00 am - Will watched neighbors through the bathroom window. he saw a woman walking past & kept shouting "Grandma!" over & over. what made it so great was that she was a different ethnicity than his grandmother - they looked nothing alike. :)
Will played with his truck in my bathtub while I finished getting ready for the day.
11:00 am - play time - seeing the typical mess in my family room & then seeing the reminder to "Keep Calm and Carry On" makes me laugh. this picture sums up a lot of my afternoons, & I love it.
12:00 pm - snuggled with Ruby after her lunch
1:00 pm - met daddy for lunch at Chic-fil-A.
2:00 pm - stopped at the grocery store. Will kept finding random goodies to throw in the cart. he's a sucker for chocolate milk.
3:00 pm - our Christmas elf came to stay with us over the holidays. Will decided on the name "Elfie" - original, huh?
4:00 pm - Will & I made jam thumbprint cookies for a babyshower I went to later that night.
5:00 pm - finished the baking & enjoyed our yummy treats.
