Photography is a big part of this blog, and of my life. I do what I can to show the world that life with two children with special needs – cerebral palsy and Down syndrome – is beautiful, special, and, yes, rather ordinary. At the end of each quarter I post my five favorite photos […]

September 12, 2013

Trying something new today. :) I wondered if I could take a photo during each one-hour time block of a typical-ish day to document the day in snapshots. Following are the results. 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. Sarah Kate’s standard morning fare: Eggo waffle with peanut butter and syrup and a Tervis tumbler of milk. Breakfast of […]

Not the Post I Planned

August 29, 2013

I wrote a completely different post for today, but when I woke up this morning my brain was scolding me that Ain’t nobody wanting to hear about all that so I decided to start fresh. And by start fresh, I mean posting a few photos that make me smile. Monday night. Instagram. Momma’s heart was smiling. […]

March 25, 2013

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a contributor over at my friend Sarah Halstead’s blog, In the Moment With. Sarah and I “met” through our love of photography and the shared experience of having a child with cerebral palsy.

Ten (Photos) for Tuesday: Disney Magic

January 15, 2013

I’m sitting here at my desk late on Monday night, wishing I had the energy to weave a tale together for you about the past few days (and honestly, to edit these photos quite a bit more!), but it just ain’t happening. So I’ll be a little bit of a tease and post some photos […]
