This year, and last year, has been all about family. May 2013 we welcomed baby #3 and I finally wasn't stress out - kind of the opposite reaction. I adopted the mantra "A clean house is the sign of a wasted life" oh well if something didn't get completed. I am spending time with the kiddies, enjoying my family, and not thinking about the dishes in the sink or any of the dozen other lurking projects. I took time for myself every morning (while I was on maternity leave) and read through a photography magazine or book and dedicated that time to completely learning my camera and "coming off Auto" as they like to say. I literally took hundreds of photos of my coffee cup and breakfast while mastering aperture and shutter speed. I slowly, and ever so cautiously, launched first a business Facebook page, then launched a website, became obsessed with Pinterest, and slowly built and re-built my brand until I was happy with it - for now. Over the last year the kids all had birthdays, baby did all the baby things, and the world didn't come to an end because the house was a little messy. I think, a little clutter and a little mess actually makes you a better parent - who cares what anyone thinks it's not like my house is going to be on the cover of a magazine. xoxo
