Documenting





I've been trying to be more mindful of documenting my days lately. There is so much beauty when I slow down to notice it. I've been taking pics of my high school senior and her friends this week. I asked the worker behind the counter where I went to vote this morning if now the awful television and mailer ads would stop coming to my house. I think she thought I was serious until I cracked a smile. As she was showing me how to operate the voting machine I asked if she could adjust the lighting so that my selfie of me voting would turn out better. I'm pretty sure she knew I was joking right away but I cracked a smile nonetheless. I hear rain falling outside my open windows. That's a sound I haven't heard in weeks and weeks and weeks. Our house will be full tomorrow with a team and their families eating spaghetti in preparation for the big race on Saturday.

So much beauty in the everyday.
