Before I had children grocery shopping was pretty painless; fairly enjoyable even.

 

 

Post kids, not so much. 

BUT…

when I see a face like this I am reminded that happiness can be found anywhere.

 

Taking photographs helps me to see my world differently.

It helps me to experiece life through THEIR eyes.   

Instead of being stressed out and frustrated

I can pause, click and see the world like my kids do.        

Sure, people look at me weird when

I have a toddler on my hip

and I’m taking a photograph of 

my daughter sprawled out on salt pellet bags.

But that’s okay.

Because what I see through them is

a rainbow of colors,

bright, smiling faces

and

isles & isles of joy.There is so much to 

explore

enjoy

and savor.

 

Maybe grocery shopping isn’t so bad after all.
