52 Week Project – Image Describing Your Favorite Song


It’s a great song and I think of it often.  It reminds me that no matter what, To live in the here and now.  It’s no use to get frustrated over silly things (or things that are not so silly).  Some day I’ll look back on this and just smile.  🙂


Tuesday, May 8th, 2012.

Throughout the day, I had a certain song in my head.


Both boys woke up sick.

Washing Machine that is only 2 months old decided to flood.

I had a mini freakout on the phone with Sears.

I will be without a Washing Machine until Friday.

Every towel in the house was used to soak up all the water. We are using small dishtowels and wash cloths when we shower.  (it’s actually pretty funny)

There is damage to the house because of the flood.

There is a mess in just about every room in the house.

The kids refuse to clean up.

The kids decided they were going to wear multiple outfits today.

Chris HATES getting his picture taken.  Constantly putting his hand up, looking/running away, blocking himself every time the camera comes out.

Kids get better so I took them out to test out a new location (for five minutes).

Of course, Chris pouted the whole time.

When I try to take a photo of Chris while he’s not looking, Mikey photobombs it.

There’s always toothpaste in the kid’s sinks.

I can never get them to make up their beds.  I don’t even try anymore.


You know – it doesn’t really matter.  I love my kids, my husband and my life.  It’s really not so bad.  (It’s pretty great actually.)  The kids will grow up.  I’ll miss the toys all over.  I’ll miss the pouts and constant complaining from Chris.  As do all kids, they grow and change.  And they will move out of the house.  Have their own families, kids, toys, mess, complaints.  And I will miss it.

  • Mia - I came across your site through a pin on Pinterest and I will be back! You sound like a wonderful soul and I love your office wall grouping of canvases. I like the entire space. Any way. Too bad we live so far apart or I might have to have coffee. I’m not a stalker just a fellow photographer.

  • denean - Loved the slideshow!! And I just adore the photo of the toys all over the floor. That is my house every day… and I remind myself often that I will miss this one day too! 🙂

  • Holly - WOW! What a beautiful way to illustrate such a neat song. Well done! 🙂

  • Clara - This is so true and really resonated with me… Love your slideshow of images… put together perfectly for the song!
