    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

waskesiu (part two)

While we do prefer rain and grey days, have two of the former and mostly two of the latter felt like a nice dichotomy. It was really interesting taking some pictures in gloomy weather, and the next day taking photographs of the same sites in blue skies. It’s a great reminder of how weather can really set the mood when you are photographing outdoors. I noticed that certain shots and angles don’t always work when the sun is glaring off of certain objects, while seeing the reflection of it in others makes for a really beautiful shot. Anyway, enough of yet another photography lesson.

On the last morning of our trip we parked our vehicle in front of a hotel and took Truman for one last long walk. Neither of us wanted to go back, especially since later that afternoon we had planned to meet our contractor at our property and plan out where everything was going, and the next day was to be our appointment at the bank where we would be applying for our new mortgage. We did have a really great discussion on how we do need to take more trips. In the last four years we had gone on less than five, and all except one were within Canada. Instead of spending money on vacations we spent it on renovations. That worked really well for us as a couple, although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. However, now that our house has sold and the renovations made us our money, I sort of feel like being selfish and spending our hard earned money on ourselves. If only for a little while. My mum always says that youth is wasted on the young. So why not be young and dumb again? Well, young and cautious and well-traveled. ;-)))
