The Beauty of Motherhood

As you may have noticed, I'm working on "redecorating" my blog, trying to make it reflect me.  I've been thinking long and hard about what direction I want to take it in, whether I should focus on just one topic, and what I want it to look like.  It will be an evolutionary process, that is the only thing I am sure of.  I can't decide just what it will be, that is boxing myself in too much.  But I have figured out something I'm pretty excited about, and that's my new subtitle, if you will, to the blog: The Beauty of Motherhood.

When I was thinking about whether to focus on one topic (photography? parenting? cooking?), I went around in circles trying to figure out which way to go.  The only thing I kept coming back to was my day-to-day life as a stay-at-home mom.  It's certainly cliche and may sound trite, but being home with my children is the hardest and most rewarding job I can imagine having.  It's tough at times, but always, always beautiful.  I get to spend my days with these wonderful little people who bring tremendous joy to my life.  They love me unconditionally, as I do them, and we truly enjoy our time together every day.  That might mean an impromptu photo shoot one day, or a new craft another, or a day of baking in the kitchen.  It's always new, and I learn as much from them as they do from me.  And now I've found a way to share all of that, with this blog.  I've followed a few "mommy blogs" for some time now, and I love the network/community that it creates.  When you're struggling with an aspect of parenting, want to share something wonderful your kids did, or learning a new skill, there's a whole world of support out there and people to learn from.  I'm excited to be a part of the blog community and hope that my readers are as happy to have me as I am to have them.

Now, a few photos from the last couple of days:

This kid is the epitome of mischief.

"Um, hi, I look"

Lilah, pretending to be sad.

And pretending to be mad.  I swear this girl will be on stage some day.
Well, good night all.  I hope you like the new direction I'm going in.  My next post will be from beautiful, rural Vermont.  I can't wait!
