Hello there, friend,

Wouldn't we all rather make memories than do homework? I would, for sure! When my daughter was first born and I was in the black hole of new motherhood, I started saying that our family motto was we always have fun. I needed that motto, that reminder that life was supposed to be fun. It wasn't supposed to be a drag. This is life; let's live it.

I haven't thought about any of this in quite some time, but I believe the thread of we always have fun still remains. I've structured my life and work around the ability to get up and go at a moment's notice, because the weather is just so amazing or because something wonderful is happening or because if we stay in this house any longer we're going to kill each other.

Last night was one of those moments. I looked out the front window, grabbed my camera and keys, and told my husband I'd be back in ten minutes or so. The sky! It was just so amazing! He was standing in the kitchen making dinner and I abandoned post at my computer where I was editing photos to drive down the street to the school and capture the sky. To me, that's fun. And I, too, would rather be making memories and having fun that doing my homework.
