We drove 5 minutes from our house in Florida to a walking trail that we frequent. We have enjoyed lots of family runs together back here, it truly is a part of our lives. As we walked back through the palmettos, Aspen started to dance and twirl. It’s exactly what this dress was made for.
In the afternoon, the storms rolled in, typical of Florida summers. A Mother’s body, as amazing as it is, is designed to ride the waves of labor and I could see that manifest in front of me. The storm outside added a peaceful relief, an assurance that the world lives on outside of these walls. But in here, miracles are born.
When I took a break from my 365 project, I thought I was allowing myself to recharge, live freely without hesitation or responsibility to my art, and to focus fully on living in those moments that I loved so dearly.
But I wasn’t.
