The me I see

When I imagine myself, this is the me I see — young and happy and fit on the side of a mountain with sun in my hair and a genuine smile on my face. But this is not always the me I see in the mirror or in photographs. 

My favorite photos

Over the years I've taken thousands and thousands of photos. So, this morning when I had the bright idea of doing a blog post about my favorites and the stories behind them, it took me hours to sift through them (It didn't help that I was searching for one in particular that I couldn't find anywhere and discovered I'd accidentally ruined by making a graphic out of it several years back. Insert crying emoji here.). These were incredibly difficult to narrow down and I have hundreds of other favorites, but here are ten that I will always cherish.

I know I’m crazy

I’m probably crazy. I quit my secure, well-paying job. I gave away half our things, packed up my family and moved to Colorado without any guarantees of employment or stability. I volunteered to keep my son home full-time until he starts kindergarten (only 125 more days) knowing that we both need engaging routines and also have a tendency to drive each other up the wall after exactly three days together.

Bright ideas

I have a lot of bright ideas. Like moving from Biloxi, Mississippi to northern Colorado in two days after working nine days in a row and spending the one day in between loading a trailer full of things that were never properly packed.
