ww #1 [it brings out the kid in me]

this is my first entry for wordless wednesday.  so, i figured there was no better way than to show you who i am by finding little tidbits of inspirational photography that brings out my inner child.  i love [LURV] being a wife and mom.  i am THAT mom who {rEaLlY} plays with her kids.  i mean, gets on their level, even if that means on the floor, in the dirt, in her best jeans, rolling, YES, rolling in it, laughing [LoUdLy], because they can be washed & this moment, the one right now, yes, right now, where i am on the ground, in the dirt, with my child, rolling around, and seeing the gleam in his eyes, that, THAT, will be etched in his memory fOrEvEr, & he will one day, reenact it, & his heart will over flow with the joy that he gets from the gleam he sees in his child's eyes.  the jeans won't matter.  the dirt won't matter.  making memories.  it's about the memories.  below are all captured memories.  sometimes we all just need to sit back and take ourselves there again...even if just for a moment.

finger painting...lets get dirty

bike ride...with the family

swing...really high

lay on a hammock...and take a nap

sidewalk art...for the whole family

this bike is just so retro...i love it
