As I sit inside, all cozy from a nice romp through the fields, and woods of my mother's farm this morning I am reminded at how lucky I am to live surrounded by so much beauty. Though, I am not the biggest fan of the snow/winter, one cannot help but appreciate it's beautiful. How slowly, and gracefully the snow can fall, and how perfect and clean everything looks after it is done.
This morning I was able to enjoy a walk around the farm with one of my closest friends, and her little brother. It is beautiful, sunny and snow covering everything. I played with a new lens I got for Christmas, and Diana and her brother played with their own cameras. It was good to get out of the house because at a little over 6 months pregnant, I need to get up and move around a bit. I have also been feeling like I have been in a creative hibernation of sorts, and have barely touched my camera since becoming pregnant. I have been too sick, or too exhausted to do much of anything. I am grateful to have some of my energy back, along with not feeling sick anymore. I am looking forward to my first wedding of the season in April, and the first time my husband and I will be shooting together. I think it will make the experience so much fun, and I will be able to provide the bride with more photos to enjoy from different perspectives of the day.
My little boy, Peter, in my belly, is active as well now. He tumbles and thuds up against the sides of my belly and I enjoy every moment of it. I love being reassured he is doing well, and is healthy in there. Nick and I are so anxious to meet him this summer, the days couldn't go by fast enough sometimes. I am though, appreciating, the last few months we have just us together. Cuddling by the fire with Lola and Penelope, watching our favorite B horror movies, and enjoying spur of the moment trips to DC or Annapolis. These moments along have been precious, and I have been cherishing them.
