What do you see?

Do you see a woman in an old pink bathrobe who desperately needs her hair done and  to drop 15 pounds? Do you see a messy room with a bed that needs making, walls that need painting, windows that need dressing? Do you see a big ugly honkin t.v. that should not be in the room in the first place?

I'm trying to look past all that and see a happy mom. A happy mom that loves being home all day with her baby.  A happy mom that's trying to better her photography skills so bear with her please. (I guess I could have practiced my skills after I was dressed, hair blown out and makeup on...although lately the last two don't happen much.) A few years ago I would never have posted a picture of myself looking like this. Honestly, I don't know what's come over me. I do know that only recently, like within the past few years, I've stopped caring what other people think. I wish it didn't take me so long because boy is that free-ing!

Anyway, I love blogs with great photography. There are so many out there. Lately, that is what inspires me. My kids can attest to that. "Mom, enough with the camera!" You just wait, someday they'll thank me.


  1. Love this post..and good for you for stepping out! I'm working on my photography too...still so challenged by the techy lingo, and too often resort to the presets....but it is so much fun! I see a mom loving her little baby in this pic...and it's very sweet!

  2. I don't think I would have ever noticed all those things you pointed out in that pic. How can you get past that gorgeous pink bathrobe and that beautiful boy? What about that kid? So cute.
    And I'm jealous of your photog skills. I wish I could, but I just don't have the patience. Maybe after the wedding? Then it's too late . . .

  3. I see the cutest chubby legs attached to yummy baby feet. Oh how I miss that phase! Enjoy it because it passes too quickly! (which you already know). I see a sweet mom who is snuggling w/her child while thinking about her photography. A mom who is learning new things & venturing forth~what a great example for your kiddos!

  4. Your photog skills are soooo good...and I love your rawness. I'm with ya, sista. Let's get real! Isn't it just fabulous to BE? Just be ourselves. Thanks for a good lesson today!
    Love ya!

  5. I see the cutest chubby thighs and want to eat him up. I never noticed the room!!!

  6. The baby thighs are KILLING me! Do you squeeze them all day long?
