52 weeks of black and white: week 7

February 20, 2015

{Santa Monica Pier at Sunset}

Once again this week, I am a tad late in posting my 100 Wednesday Black and White. My family is off school this week and my husband is on vacation so I’m a bit distracted with good things and family time.

My son turned 18 this week and it has put me into a major reflection mode. Both of my kids call it my “Hallmark” moments but I am realizing how quickly they are both growing up and how soon our daily family dynamic will change and I want to savor every last moment and enjoy.

This photo reminded me also of savoring our moments and taking the time to reflect and be connected to nature. I have wanted to touch the sand and hear the waves crash for about 6 months and finally last week I got to do that. Even just a brief beach visit reconnected me with a slower pace, fresh air and the journey I am on…

Have a great Friday everyone!
