A few weeks ago, Maya and I went to play on the beach and took some pictures. In my mind, I had ONE shot I wanted to take. Anything past that would be great. We ended up playing for TWO HOURS, and I kept taking shots here and there, which means…a LOT of pictures!
The main catalyst was @TheMomEditdoing a brand new #TMEStyleChallenge You KNOW I LOVE THOSE! 🤗
This was a WHILE ago, and…I didn’t post them here in real time-aka NO TIME!
But…For week 1 “Show us your best rainy day outfit” . DONE AND DONE!
I’ve been sporadic in my blog posts lately… I kept looking for a reason to come back. A reason to post. The main reason I started this blog was to document US playing. As Maya’s gotten older, that’s gotten harder. She has LOTS of other extracurricular activities that I am involved in, and those have taken a precedence.
BUT…when we do outings just with us? Admittedly, I have to talk her into them at first, but once we are out…2 hours flies by and we are both laughing and having fun! I’m left totally happy and filled to the brim with joy-both creatively (to be honest) and with the fact that I just spent two hours playing with HER. NOT with her other friends on a park play date, not at a sporting event, not sitting on her bed reading (which I DO LOVE!). ❤️
But…OUTSIDE, PLAYING, LAUGHING…THAT makes us both happy! ❤️❤️❤️
I think we’ve both missed it.
I have no idea how often this will happen. It used to be almost every day, but…I will cherish every time it does happen and post the shit out of it! haha
SO…here’s a really long blog post!
🤣 Of course this stuffy is in most of our shots, and you know what? Don’t care!
You know I love a good shoe shot!
But LOVE these even more!!
My attempt at an “artistic shot” 😂
So, I had this idea in my head for a shot, but…it ended up being harder than I thought to capture haha.
Here’s me attempting to show Maya what I wanted her to do…
In the end…here’s a composite shot of three different shots. The best part about this, was the fact that Maya totally got into it. She even told me exactly where she wanted everything to be in this final edited shot 🙂 .
Loooooove all these next ones!!!!
Me telling her to NOT get any closer. Of course she wanted to go pet it!
Leggings- Naartjie (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
Ha! Falling and of course water soaked after being there maybe 10 minutes… 🙂
Love HER!!! She’s so goofy and funny, and I love it!
Nope….not QUITE what I was envisioning haha.
Nailed it!! ha 🙂
I promise she wasn’t hurt!!!
Pretty much what half of them ended up looking like 😉
