Light and Shadow

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this time of the year. The days are brighter, warmer, longer. Maybe it's my imagination, but there seem to be more moments to linger, to breathe in the world around.

School and school-year activities are winding down, so we're busy with wrap-up events, but it has been enjoyable. I am taking every chance I get to focus on the things I love, on the things that fill me back up. I have had my camera at close reach and I'm planning to share more of the pictures I've taken over the past couple of weeks.

We've had amazing light recently, especially in the early morning and also with soft sunlight streaming into our family room in the evening. Last night was particularly stunning. Bridget discovered her shadow and was captivated. I grabbed my camera and started shooting. My sweet, adorable little girl...the pictures (more here soon) bring tears to my eyes. I feel so lucky to be her mom.
