isn’t it funny how a photograph really just documents a second in one’s life? they can be a bit sneaky, can’t they? they can make one’s life seem rather happy and fulfilled because they usually show smiles, seemingly happy family & friends, adventures. but really, it’s just a moment. and the other non-documented moments surrounding the photo moment? well, those are real life moments. the good stuff. the muck. the laughs. the best part. all this has me feeling funny. because you would never know from the photos below, documenting the last couple of days (or split second moments) of our life, that i was quite ill with a sinus infection, incredibly car sick from the winding coastal roads, barely able to keep myself afloat. it wasn’t until this morning that i was feeling better! and thank goodness for that. and speaking of funny, isn’t it funny how much we appreciate our health when we have a tad experience of feeling under the weather? whenever i don’t feel well, which thank goodness isn’t often, i start bargaining. “oh please. I’ll eat more veggies. i’ll start taking naps. i’ll exercise more. please. just make me better.” enough of some funnies. well, there are more below..
