Lily had her first Texas tea party at a friend's house today and I have to say these are my kind of princesses.
I'm kind of obsessed with photographing weddings and I'm kind of obsessed with my roots that are growing in Austin and I am so thrilled to be brining the two together! Know someone getting hitched in central Texas? I'd love for you to share my name. There's magic in the air. Things are happening. I love when I can just feel the possibilities in my bones!
I know this photo is not what I usually share but oh my f-ck you guys she ended up being the leader of the parade today at school after crying all morning afraid to leave and so there is no way I am not sharing this moment. That face! I know this feeling. Pushing through fear to find joy and crazy inner pride on the other side. Yay Lily!! (And I love the look on the 6th grader's face!)
When he's sleeping, and I'm supposed to be checking his algebra homework, I'm actually closing my eyes and tracing the indentations his pen makes on the paper with my fingertips. // I also just updated my iphone and have been texting people poetry that gets made when I just keep hitting the middle word they suggest over and over. "The best of the day before I get a new song is a good time with you." Try it!
Sometimes I have so much to say, and sometimes my soul falls silent. My creative cycle has a lot of these hibernations. Anyhow, today I found myself crying because someday she will have wrinkles all around her eyes and maybe even false teeth and I wish so hard we could be old lady best friends together.
