Today I'm grateful for having an unexpected moment to take a few photos just for me.
I've been busy with various things including photos for my daughter's school play (head shots, group photos, candids, dress rehearsals...), and it is a job I find fun but overwhelming. The photos of the dress rehearsals are the hardest -- I want to catch the exciting and dramatic moments, but since I'm not sure when they are going to be, I shoot, shoot, shoot until I get them. Now I have several hundred photos to cull through in order to find the cream of the crop and make sure every student is represented.
I was able to take this in an unexpected moment of downtime during the evening golden hour and am breaking into precious sleep time to edit and upload it.
I'm giving up on numbering my gratitude days. I'll just keep trying to do them every day I can, and maybe a few extras, but doing them for every day this week is just too stressful.
