It’s no secret that life has been a little crazy around here. And normally, after a time such as this, I come back here and show you in pictures what we’ve been up to.
But I can’t do that today.
Aside from a couple of events, my camera has stayed safely tucked in its bag during this busy season. This was on purpose, and this was on accident. I brought it with me everywhere with the intention to capture the moments, but just couldn’t bring myself to drag it out and occupy myself with snapping photos.
As much as I love it, it’s work with small kids. Not only do I have to pay attention to the camera but I also have to pay attention to those little people running around. And it becomes less fun and more stress.
I read somewhere that when you take pictures, you diminish your memories. Like, somehow, your brain imprints moments more vividly in your mind if you know that a camera isn’t there to do it for you.
So that’s what I’ve been doing. Making memories with my mind, instead of with my camera.
Although I did get to snap a few pics at my cousin’s wedding a couple weeks back, which was way, way too fun. Mostly because 1) other people ran around after my kids while I did it and 2) I was less concerned with preserving my own memories, and more concerned with preserving theirs.
