This is my personal project and one that is very close to my heart: Photographing one whole day in my life, it began a few years ago on Monday Jan 1, 2018 when I did 1 day a week switching days each week which I did for two years and then for year three I only did them for each full moon and changed the format of them. Now I'm in my fourth year of doing this project, I began with the intention of doing them weekly but that hasn't been happening so I'm doing them whenever it feels right up until I reach Week 52 but still focusing on our weekends or when we are all together and have returned to my original way of doing them which is choosing 25 images for the day. Hope you enjoy following along!
We've been learning a bit about moss this past week so after a little while we got ready and headed out for a little walk along rhinefield drive in search of moss for a little terrarium we were gonna make. We would have done this already earlier in the week but you, Nixie, wanted daddy to join us and he's had Wednesday, yesterday and today off.
We continued through the safari and when we finally arrived at the deer feeding you, Forrest, were in heaven. Honestly if you could feed them all day long you would be the happiest little boy in the world. I just love how happy it makes you and this time you even tried to feed them just a couple of bits at a time so that it would last longer. You were also loving it when they would put your whole hand into their mouth which caused the absolute best squeals of joy.
I went straight over to her and kneeled beside her and asked if she knew who I was. She said no. She didn't even know she had a daughter. I told her she actually had two. Me and Anita. After a while of this conversation in a loop she started asking me, “so you are my daughter?” And I would say yes and she would say “oh that makes me so happy! I'm so happy you are here! That makes it so special.”
And as I walked through the door I couldn't believe my eyes but there was a huge rainbow balloon arch with a happy birthday sign waiting for me along with some presents on the sofa! It looked absolutely incredible and I was completely surprised! My bday isn't until the 26th but we are away in Sweden then and you all wanted me to have my present now!
