Have you heard of this little trend that's going around the interwebs?
Okay, here's the sitch. So often it's the Mamas who are taking all the pictures of life-as-we-know-it and we get left out. When we look back over our year's worth of pictures, we are nowhere to be found.
I want to look back and see that I was an active part of my children's lives and for my children to see that one day too. I know that I am involved. But it'd be nice to see some proof.
So Sarah from The Sunday Spill started taking pictures every day of herself; with her kids, her husband, by herself and either holding the camera herself or using a timer. I was so inspired that I decided to join along for the ride.
I've included a link on my sidebar to my album of daily self portraits and you can follow along with me there!
It's interesting because I'm really hard on myself and how I look in pictures. So this is also a journey in me continuing to learn to love myself in a realistic way. Because at the end of the day, my kids don't care if I'm a size 6 or 16. They just want me to be present. To cuddle with them and read them stories. To bake them sweet things and play hide-and-go-seek.
So here we go!
