It is so easy to forget that there is beauty in the everyday. Nothing particularly special happened over the past month for our family, there were no big milestones, no exciting celebrations, no adventures to far away places. Life felt busy, Melbourne was cold and wet and days with the kids often felt repetitive. Photography has such an amazing way of reminding you to look for the beauty and to soak it up. I forced myself to get my camera out for my own family more often this month - I even challenged myself to get in the frame - which was a first for me (not counting i-phone selfies!). So, here are a few of our everyday moments....trips to the park, tantrums over having to leave said park, suuuuuper slow walks with a 3 year old who wants to stop and smell the roses (literally, every.single. rose), fights over toy tractors and tickle attacks. Crazy and chaotic, but I wouldn't have it any other way (haha, that's a lie.... I could do without the tantrums in the park ... oh, and the tickle fight on the bed ended up with Elise body slamming Dan which ended in 2/3s of the room crying...but I'm getting off topic).
