Truthfully, they end up looking the same but hey, one of my favorite mottos is better safe then sorry.
As I'm deleting pictures, I come across one of Sean's mom and it's a beautiful, candid shot. It is of her looking at one of her grandchildren with a smile on her face. I decide that I want to see the album of that day and before you know it tears are running down my face.
Legit tears. And in the back of my head I'm thinking, girl, you're so ridiculous. But that does not stop the tears.
Because they're the ones that you sometimes just need to let out of your system.
As I'm looking at pictures I am so grateful that I have these moments frozen in time. Sometimes you don't want to take pictures because you want to be in the moment or you're just not feeling like it, but last Sunday, I was so thankful that I wasn't having "one of those days" when the pictures were taken. Pictures upon pictures of our family and friends. Of Sean and I. Seeing our moms so healthy and lively made my heart so full.
I came across some shots that I never shared on the blog because they were not "good enough" for the blog. Granted they are still not my favorites but I wanted to share them along with this post.
This day, Sean and I were driving to the ocean. It was a bit of a dreary beginning of a day but it ended up being full of sun and shine by the end of the day. These pictures of the road remind me that sometimes we may feel like things are just not good and we even get more sad to believe that things may never be good again. But it's just part of the journey and often at the very end of the journey things do look up and we get the pleasant reminder of why life is such a beautiful blessing and experience.
