Independence Day Weekend
Our family had a difficult time last week, but we got through it together and we managed to enjoy a nice 4th of July weekend in the mountain with the Grandparents.
What I want to say in this post is that things can look amazing through the lens and still feel very hard in real life. Chasing light is a sort of a sweet revenge for also chasing after unruly children and being tired all the time. It is my consolation prize in moments of insecurity and sadness. Because I will be damned if I let the hard and sad moments define me! I might go down trying to do this thing called life, but I'll go down beautifully because I am an artist, this is America, and freedom of choice is the highest reward.
I also want to say that I love my family more than I am often able to show, despite that they drive me nuts, exhaust me, and scare me to death sometimes. I love my genius children, my handsome husband, my lovely sister and niece, my sweet parents and my amazing in-laws, my goofy dogs, and my fuzzy cat...you guys are the true light of my life!
