A Year of Stories/Week 40

Week 40!!!!

A lil' bit of randomness this week.

And then over the weekend I got to pick up Hannah and bring her home for Fall Break, 8 loads of laundry and all!!!

Another top parenting moment....the first time you hug your kid after you leave them at college. Pure relief and joy. And she seems happy and healthy and that's all I can ask for!

I don't always make the most obvious choices as a mom, but I do know that I will forever let my kids be who they want to be, guide them if they need it, but not ever try to turn them into something they're not. They do what they're passionate about, not what everyone else is doing. And even though the bubble we live in can be judgmental at times, I want them to always feel that they are enough. I need them to know what being worthy feels like.

A Year of Stories is a collaborative group of storytelling photographers sharing our images and prose with each other and you. Up next is Julie Mak whose images never disappoint!


  1. What a beautiful week! The "light" arm on her face and the wine glass made me gasp. You always have at least one that makes me gasp!

  2. Yes, the arm and the glass - gasp! Is that a tattoo?

  3. I first saw that wine glass image on FB. So incredible. I'm glad you were able to hug your daughter and see for yourself how she was doing!
