Normal life and goals

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 3:04 pm

The New Year always brings this crazy sense of hope for me! Makes me feel as if I can accomplish almost anything I set my mind to! Leave yesterdays fears and doubts there ….in yesterday and dream big! So goals is what I do! Not resolutions, mind you…but goals! Gives me a sense of direction! In a way, it is making a choice to live with a purpose! What is my purpose in life?!! Who am I?!! Really… who am I?!! Where am I going? Where will I be at the end of 2009?

I know that everything is impossible on my own. God as been undoubtedly good to me! I have learned it works best to set goals for myself and then sit back and go along for the ride! In all reality…it is out of my hands! And I am learning, it works best this way!

So goals it is! This is how I roll! A simple goal of mine is taking more snapshots of normal life! I got so “busy” shooting photographs, normal life happened and that is where it stopped! I wanna remember normal life and my kiddos with snapshots!

So here is to normal life…

Adler thinks these goggles are all that and then some! Upside down, inside out…he’s got them on and he’s a happy kid!

Riley suggested we sing happy birthday as I took his picture…so sing we did. The simplicity of a four year’s world! All these photos are taken sitting on the dining room table using window light. If you look closely, you can see me in Riley’s eyes. Singing. Normal life.

  2. Char, I love these snapshots of normal every day life. This is what it’s all about. Portraits are great and all, but it’s so important to record the every day. There is beauty in the simplest things! I look forward to seeing more of your every day shots.
