I recently read that to get yourself into the blogging habit you should have "theme" days. A post that you don't have to think about (or in my case, craft your butt off for) once a week. I figured, what better day than Monday, the start of the average person's work week, to remind myself that I need to blog...and that in order to blog, I need to accomplish something to blog about.
I started this blog by request of a few friends who loved the things that I made and wanted to be able to see them all in one place. However, more people than my friends are reading this now, and I thought I'd use this one day a week to give those folks a small window into who I am.
So, I give you the first ever "Monday Moment" a photo from the week past and a little peek into the moments that happen when I'm not creating.
This is my son, Gabe. I love this picture. I love how every time I look at it I am reminded of the way he just can't get the hang of a spoon. The way he treats his little shovel like a giant fork and stabs the sand, concentrating with all his might on getting just a few grains into the bucket.
I love how I know looking at it that next year I'll be wondering when, exactly he figured out how to use a spoon, when he got to be such a big boy. I know this, because the big boy in last year's photos, crawling through the waves on a very similar Lake Michigan beach, seems impossibly tiny now.
