What an incredible first half of 2015!
It’s been 6 months of paradoxes for me. It’s flown by but it’s crept forward. It’s been super stressful (I mean who tries to quit their job, start a ministry from scratch (check out Dan’s blog for more information about that), and adopt a baby girl with Down syndrome (possibly as early as October!!) in the same timeframe? we do!!) but yet we’ve had an abundant amount of peace. I’ve been so happy and fulfilled in living where we do but yet it doesn’t feel like home. I’m more intentional in my relationships than ever but some of the ones I care about the most feel the most distant. I’m getting better at saying No to things but the things I’m having to say No to are getting harder to say no to… and vice versa, the yeses are more of things that I know my future self will thank me for, not necessarily the me of today. I’m more confident in my faith than at anytime before but yet need Christ more than ever to help my unbelief.
Life is hard and keeps me longing for eternity…. and yet amazingly beautiful and fulfilling. It’s paradoxical.
Here are my weekly photo picks for a blog I’m so honored to be a part of called The Dallas Littles Club (which is sorta a DFW collection of photographers who take a weekly photo using their big cameras of their own kiddos! Here’s the first half of 2015!
*and every one of these images were edited with Mastin Lab Film Presets for Lightroom. (I have the Kodak Portra set and Ilford B/W set) I LOVE these presets and they give me the classic look that I fell in love with when I shot film back in the day.
