Yesterday was a pretty dreary day and then all of a sudden, the sun came out – just in time for sunset. Sometimes I just can’t waste pretty light and have to get my camera out. Soooo excited about spring! Soon this plant will have leaves again and we’ll be out late playing at the park, blowing bubbles, eating popsicles, and riding bikes. Can’t wait for the warm weather!

Goals for March:

Get our own family portraits taken. (So excited to have images of the three of us!)

I love that we’ve been picking one or two books to read all month. This month we read Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and No, David. He absolutely loved both of them so one of my goals is to pick one or two special books for the month.

Start a new project with other awesome photographers I met at the Pinkle Toes Workshop. 10 on 10 will feature 10 personal images from the month. Really excited about this project because it will remind me to pick up the camera and capture the little moments in our day.

Research running apps. I have one that I’ve really liked – just wondering what else is out there. Any suggestions?
