My life is busy. Even if I stay home all day long, I'm busy from the minute I wake up, until the minute I close my eyes. Sometimes even that isn't the end. My mind likes to stay busy and that can makes it hard to sleep.
Between meals, diapers, dishes, laundry, spit-up, and all the other fun things I see, I forget that I am surrounded by beauty. Whether it's my baby's smile, my daughter's latest dance moves, or even something as simple as a discarded yellow block, I live in a home filled with beauty, fun, and laughter.
Because beauty can be both lost and found in the mundane, I'm very excited about Project 365. My first post was today, Feel free to check it out. I'm at http://365project.org/musemama/365 and my first photo is called "Baby Love".
This is a great chance for me to spend a bit more time getting to know my camera and what I can do with it. It's also a chance for me to spend some time seeing my home and my life in a new way. Instead of looking for the latest thing I need to do, I can look for the thing that's interesting, or tells a story. The picture in this post tells a story. It's a short story about the lengths my kids will go to in order to get their picture taken, but it's a story nonetheless.
