Work It Wednesday - August 20th

Wednesdays seem to be coming quicker and quicker these days. Today is the last Wednesday of the summer before school starts. What that means for me is today is the last full Wednesday I get to spend playing and enjoying the day with these three little ladies. So, I hope you'll forgive me, but I'm skipping out on Work it Wednesday and heading out for a day with my girls.

I will leave you with one little Work It Wednesday reminder though - take pictures! Seriously! Too often we only pull the camera out for birthdays, holidays or vacations. Today, commit to taking more pictures. Pictures of your everyday life. The people you share it with. The places you go on a daily basis. Your house, your car, your favorite books. Just take pictures and document your everyday, ordinary life.

I briefly caught a show on photography last night and it showed photos taken of everyday life during World War II. They weren't works of art, they didn't have amazing composition, but they documented life. It was emotional, breathe taking, and it was beautiful. So go! Take pictures of your own beautiful life!

Enjoy your day.

Kudos to you for making the right choice with what to do with your day. The picture of you with the girls is really stunning in it's simplicity and beauty.

What a wonderful reminder, too, that what we consider to be pictures of everyday life are often real jewels when someone looks at those same 'ordinary' pictures years later. I so treasure looking back at pictures of the first place I lived and at the surroundings with all the cars from the early 1950s, along with the fashions of the day.

I think I'll take a picture of my hubby in his overcrowded home office and maybe even a few pictures of my craft room.
