I’m going to put a quick blog up. I keep joking around that I have lost my mojo. And this can mean lots of different things depending on who you are but for me, it just means…I have not been making time for the magic. AND what that means is. I’m absolutely not taking the time to see the good stuff, to document it to share it to be in the moments. Instead I’m missing my littlest and only girl tremendously, yes I knew 6 weeks was a very long time. I have never been away from motorcycle man that long since the day we wed, I have never been away from my boys that long either….let alone my youngest child. I thought it would be good for her, I thought it would be fun. Much more fun than sitting home alone all day while I was at work since summer has picked up for us in our industry. So my working days are longer, yet another reason that finding time for the stuff that fills me is less. I know this experience for my girl is good and in some ways it’s important that she see how living a different life is good. But it sure doesn’t take away the fact that there is a void in this house, that it’s much more quiet and we miss her greatly. All these things, missing her, working more well they have messed with that mojo.
So I took a little bit of time as it rained and rained yesterday and I fully embraced that beautiful sound and gray skies and I sat in front of my computer and pulled up moments of my summer from June until now. Some of these moments included our girl and it was so nice to reflect and to appreciate and to create again. It felt right.
Here is the film I put together on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Just a few things I have been collecting this summer. I still want to make my film from our trip to Indiana. That one will take days…not just a few hours. I hope you will enjoy if you have a moment to see summer the way my eyes see it. From the above ground pool, little critters, independence, and strong boys and smiling girl who is part mermaid if you want to know the entire truth. Water is her friend and dolphins are her animal.
The word to use to view the film will always be, love
