to get lost...frannklin tn lifestyle photographer

this is me...as a child, constantly lost in the dream world of my imagination reading for hours and hours and hours.

i read everything you could put in my hands, Shakespeare in the 4th grade! can you believe it? i asked my mom to buy it for me!

see this is why i truly love this blessing i strive to grow in everyday.  simple things can capture you and remind you, of the smells, the feelings, the true emotion you felt at the very moment. 

this image did it today for me.  the simple pleasure of being a child. carefree, life happens at your pace...

today is September 11. 11 years ago i stood in my senior year college apartment getting ready for my 2nd class of the day...(admittedly, i skipped my early am that day) however, i would not have experienced any of the history in the making.  i sat on my couch, legs crossed, breath stopped, a round brush still hot from the dryer in my lap, staring, waiting, only to see the 2nd plane smash into the 2nd tower on live TV.  our world changed in an instant.  the naivety of the simple life was smashed as deeply as the towers themselves.  WVU was a state of pandemonium unlike any other.  WVU is home to nearly 1/2 the schools population of NY, NJ and DC northern VA students.  PA makes up another significant portion.  i couldn't forget September 11 even if i wanted to...i pray for the families of the lost victims, hopefully we all do...

may we notice the little things we do ourselves each day.  they are the reminders to our loved ones and friends of who we are.  Of course, you may not remember until you see it yourself...
