10 on 10: August

in family life,life is beautiful

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but the 10th of the month always seems to zip on by, so this time I set an alarm on my phone to remind myself. :) When I headed over to Rebekah’s blog and read about how the project started, I knew it was meant for me. Lord knows I need some reminders of beauty amidst my challenging days…

I started the Ten on Ten project back in January of 2008. My amazing family had just given me my very own SLR for my 28th birthday. I had given birth to my second son (sixteen months after my first) and out of desperation to combat a horrible bought of post pardum depression I longed for a project to help me find beauty even when my world was so exhausting and hard with two little ones running around.

We mostly had a day at home today except for an open house at Gigi’s preschool– her new school year starts tomorrow!

Guess I better set my alarm for next month! :)
