I'm computerless.
It's kind of sad.
I may have finally overwhelmed our MacBook with so many awesome people it finally needed counseling...or a check up. Luckily we back all of our images up from the very beginning, so we won't lose anything, no matter what happens with our computer, but in the meantime I miss it.
But in a sense, it's good timing. I find that I needed some things stripped away that distract me so I could see the mess I am. And I could sit with all the things - good and bad brewing within me that I so often push off to the side. And I could deal with it. And admit it. And invite people into it. Oh how much that hurts and oh how good it is.
So today there will be no picture. But there will be a promise. A promise to care for my own soul, even when the longing for a faster pace attempts to beat my mind into submission. And that too is a beautiful thing. (The caring for my own soul part...not the beat down.)

  1. Hi Amy, I don't know if you remember me, but my husband, Adrin, worked at YFC a few years ago. Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say hi and that I've been enjoying seeing your beautiful pictures! You are so talented!! I'm hoping that maybe sometime in the spring I'll have saved enough pennies to have you come do a shoot of my family! :) Hope your mac book feels better soon. Good for you for taking time to care for your own soul. So easy to overlook as a busy mamma, huh?
