Do you ever wonder how much of your life is being lived through your lens?
I feel that with social media, we have had more pressure to be documenting exciting lives. More vacations, bigger events, lots of air travel - all to be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and/or Instagram. I am absolutely guilty of this too, and really wish I wasn't.
I hope to keep a bit of "living in the moment" experiences. Being comfortable enough to not have my phone in my hand. Letting myself watch a firework show without filming it. Taking in a sunset without a photograph. Sometimes, it's okay to let my memory be enough. This frees up my hands to hold my little ones or hug my husband. Life is the adventure. I don't want to miss it!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
