The View From Here - Vol. 1

As soon as I saw this photo that I snapped of my girls this morning I knew that this is the type of moment I don't want to forget and the type I want to document more of here.

My life, my view.

I read something the other day that struck a cord:

"If you are always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you're in?  Enjoy the ride!" 

Along the lines of Alphabitty Moments, The View From Here is a way to document the every day events of life - in my case, motherhood. I recently upgraded my cell phone and downloaded the free app Lightbox and am so happy with it! But here's the thing..... I took 2,600+ photos with my old phone and only a very very small fraction of those made it on my blog where I am compiling our family memories for a future blog book. That's not OK. So once a week I'm going to post at least one photo I've taken from my perspective. They won't always have a filter applied, there may be weeks where I post ten photos and others where I only get one on here. The point is that the memories will live on because let's face it, I'm lucky if I remember to eat lunch some days let alone remember how little Elsa looked the first time she rode in the car cart at the grocery store.

If you'd like to join me in sharing the view from where you are you can use the linky below. Normally Thursdays are Alphabitty Moment days, but The View From Here will take it's place for this week. Starting next week we'll share our views on Fridays.
