Sometimes There are no Pictures

If you are like me, you are the one behind the camera capturing the moments. You wander around taking pictures, hoping to be able to preserve the memory in a beautiful way, while still making the story interesting to your readers.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I spend so much time trying to capture the moment that I forget to be a part of that moment. I spend so much time trying to tell the story that I forget to write myself into it.

As much as I really love blogging and the desire to preserve memories, sometimes I just want to sit back and be a part of what is happening. This past weekend, I did just that. I had every intention of taking pictures of all of the food, fun, and people.

This weekend my sister and mom came to see me and celebrate my birthday. When they got here, there was so much laughter and so much to be apart of that I did not take a single picture. Instead of capturing every detail, I was actively a part of those details.

As a blogger, I can spend too much time worrying about telling the story that I forget to live the story myself.

And while I don’t have any pictures of the moments from this weekend, I had a beautiful time with my family. I let myself be in the story and because of that, I will never forget it.


Don't forget to be in the moment.
