RemembeRed asked: This week, I’m asking you to take us into the moment your favorite photograph of yourself was taken, to show us who you were then and what the photograph means–in 300 words.
Today I'm sharing a photograph that is definitly NOT my favorite of me, but I'm in it.
This is one of those "day in the life" type photos. I took the kids outside to mess around in my garden. As you can see, it was time to weed out the long gone zucchinni plants, turn the soil and help me plant a winter batch of garlic.
What this photograph means to me? Love, fun, memory makers.
I taught the kids about composting. That it's good for the soil and the plants. I know it sunk in a little bit because Maddi told my mom at Thanksgiving that we put food in our garden and it was "good for the world".
As I look at this photo now, I cringe at those veins on my forehead, the wrinkles. But all those self-criticisms fade quickly as I get back to the root of the photo. That's me and my kids and we're making memories right there.
