I don’t what it is about the fall season that makes it such a busy time. I don’t remember it ever being this busy before…
Maybe it’s because this summer was especially quiet around here, and we didn’t really go anywhere. But I think that it’s more than just that. This October was one of the rainiest on record here. So I’m grateful we were able to keep busy or I might have gone crazy. 😉 I was able to do things that make me happy. Between homeschool, soccer, new blogging endeavors, trying to get my house back in order, and lots and lots of photography I have found joy. I’ve been able to photograph several weddings in the past few months, and capture lots of families around my property. I absolutely love being able to create these memories for people. Another thing that makes me super happy is being able to show people around our little farm, and show off my animals.
I posted this picture on Instagram the other day, but I couldn’t help but post it here as well.
Time goes by so quickly and every moment is precious. Taylor was smitten with this chicken and she didn’t even mind that she got pooped on a little. 😉 I photographed this family 6 years ago, soon after I first started my photography journey and Taylor was only a little girl then. It made me freak out just a little thinking about my kids and how grown up they are going to be in 6 years.
During busy seasons like this I see my days flying by filled with good things.
That includes kid’s activities, family time, and of course milking goats. Amidst all of the chaos I am reminded that memories are being created and I am grateful that I studied photography for so long. That way I can photograph my own family on a daily basis. I’m hoping that 6 years from now Taylor’s mom looks back at this photo with fond memories. Then another 6 years will pass, then another, then another. Before we know it she will be showing this picture to her own children and telling them about that time when she snuggled a chicken and became her best friend. A moment was created, a memory was captured, joy was felt and that joy will continue to live on from generation to generation.
Have you had a busy fall season? What does busy look like to you? How do you create joyful memories in your daily life?
