"The more vast the amount of time we've left behind us, the more irresistible is the voice calling us to return to it. This pronouncement seems to state the obvious, and yet it is false. Men grow old, the end draws near, each moment becomes more valuable, and there is no time to waste over recollections. It is important to understand the mathematical paradox in nostalgia; that it is most powerful in early youth, when the volume of the life gone by is quite small."

I have never been a very ambitious girl. Those who have known me long can attest to this fact. I have started many things and never followed through. But this time it is different. I have finally found a passion all my own (second to being a mommy, of course). Photography.

I have dabbled here and there over the past two years, but recently have become more serious about my hobby & started devoting my time to learning all that I can. I started saving up for my very first dslr.

For those of you that don't know, I have the best husband ever. He is supportive, encouraging, and always looking out for my happiness & this past weekend, Bryan chipped in and picked up my Nikon D80. It is gorgeous! I never knew something could bring me so much joy.

I have so, so much to learn, but here is the first pic to share from my fancy new toy!

you'll be 8 months old tomorrow. i can't believe how fast it is all going by. my tiny baby is quickly growing into an independent toddler & i am having a hard time keeping up. these moments are so precious & i pray i remember every single one. the way your face gets so serious when you are trying to figure out a new task. the look of pride when you first crawled across an entire room. the twinkle of mischief in your eye right before you dive for the dog's tail. the sweet way you nuzzle my neck to let me know that i am the one that makes it okay. my little girl....

yesterday you pulled yourself up using me for support. soon you will be walking. like every milestone reached, i can't imagine how you are going to figure it out. but then i blink & you've done it again. so many things you are left to learn on your own, but what about the rest? do i have what it takes to be a good mother? can i teach you all the things you need to learn. will i be a good example of kindness & compassion. how do you teach someone else humility? i want so much for you & i pray that i am able to put myself aside & always do what is best for you.
