I have wanted to do this for a long time, I have an amazing photographer of a friend out in this blogging world and have always wanted to show off her work. I also would like to fly on a plane to meet her and have her take photographs of my children but I figured showing her off here was a little more realistic. So we have collaborated on a Wordful Wednesday post.
My words, her beautiful photography.
I hope I did them justice.
-Mommy look at those.
-Yep, Parker, that’s nice. Lets go. I said, never looking up from my arms full of baby and shoes and coats, all necessary to get us out the door on time.
I turned to come back down the stairs, attempting to free one of my arms in order to pull along his, and I saw what he saw.
Rows of icicles, glimmering outside the window, long and beautiful at the level of a three year-old eye.
I had never noticed.
I dropped the belongings in my arms and filled them instead, with my three wandering babies, crouching down to take it all in.
I asked them what they could see, their eyes widened as they pointed to the tear drops floating from each pane of ice, to the tree branches bowing under heavy snow.
I had never seen any of it before this moment.
I stop at that window every time I pass it now, pulling close whatever child is nearby.
Hoping to instill in them a love for beauty as fleeting as icicles.
They will be gone soon.
Thank you Sarah, for allowing me to share your work. Please visit Sarah and all of her talent at NapTime Momtog.
