It’s crazy, but I honestly felt bad for taking the day off to celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s been super busy wrapping up wedding season and welcoming new clients, and the laundry has been piling up that even my 7 year old was distraught she couldn’t wear her favorite shirt, jeans, dress…(insert any article of clothing here really). What do you want to wear? Today’s the day I can care about house chores more than work.
I’ve been more like a machine these last few days. Then yesterday, I unplugged, and the exhaustion, from staying up while galleries loaded until 4am, and reflecting on how much we had to be thankful for in our little home, hit me like a ton of bricks. We’ve had some serious setbacks in life, career woes, and a drop-you-to-your-knees medical scare with our daughter, and here we are doing alright.
I fought back tears most of the day on how lucky we were for every single thing. Little feet kicking me in my back and practically pushing me out of bed was welcomed over a solid night’s sleep. I’ll continue to be humbled by the life we are working so darn hard for and it somehow actually paying off because that hasn’t always been the case, and being so so fortunate that we have our health and another day to share with each other.
From your very emotional, friend and photographer, I hope that your Thanksgiving was memorable and filled with many reasons to be thankful.
