Debut post...

Do you find yourself counting down for everything in life?  Do you count down until the weekend....the next season.....for vacation....the next holiday off from work?  Me too.  I find its hard not to do it, but I had a change of heart lately.   Now that I'm approaching my "late" 40's I want life to slow down a little now.  Enjoy each day as if I've counted down for it, instead of wishing my life away.  This is life, right here, right now...this day.  I admit, it's not easy to do, but life is passing by faster than I would like. 

The next thing I've started to do is take pictures...of everything!  Document this life I'm living.  I think we tend to grab the camera during the holidays, birthdays, beach trips and then put it back on the shelf.  Why not take pictures of normal life happenings?  I know that 30 years from now I will forget what our normal routine life was like in my 40's and it would be great to see a few more pictures besides Christmas gatherings.  Going through my parents old pictures is one of my favorite things to do.  Recently I sat down with my grandmother and looked through album after album of old pictures of her life.  She had a huge box of pictures that needed to be put in albums and my mother and her sisters worked on getting almost all of the pictures in albums.  It was a major project, but I know they enjoyed the walk down memory lane. 

Like the title says, this is my debut post.  I finally decided to take the leap and start my own blog of life and one picture at a time.   I hope you follow along!
