Project Life | Week Fifteen

There is beauty in the simplicity of life.


My boys put their shoes in a basket when they enter the house. The structure is great for their little developing brains, and I appreciate not tripping over tiny shoes. I hike the same trails, walk the same neighborhoods, drive the same route between my house and work/hiking/gym, and therefore see the same landmarks every day. I love discovering something I haven’t noticed in familiar places, and I appreciate the comfort of routine (like Taco Tuesday, bedtime songs, meal prepping, and hot tea every morning). Life is ever changing and unpredictable, so in simple little ways I do my best to create a safe little world for myself and my children.


I love adventure and exploration as much as I enjoy the safety and predictability of my everyday comforts. This week I enjoyed a peaceful night at home with the kids, photographed artwork in a furniture store (with the added thrill of being discreet incase that wasn’t allowed), ate in a restaurant I haven’t visited for 10 years, and had a downtown date night that included photographing a very cool construction site. Balance between adventure and routine is necessary for my happiness, and this week was wonderful!
