home time

I fell off my photo a day wagon about a month ago.  It seemed so harmless at first, but the longer I stayed off, the harder it was to get back on.  I'm back on now, but feeling rather rusty.

I noticed this last week that most of my photos are cozy "at home" shots.  This has definitely been my love lately.  Although it's summer time and we're out and about all day and loving it, there is a special spot in my heart for my cozy home time.

This has been a skill I've had to relearn since having kids.  There was a time when they were babies that I packed them up and got out of the house as quickly as I could.  I think this was the only way I knew how to relax with them, to be away from all the duties I just wasn't accomplishing at home.

Now those days have past, and I have learned how to relax, with my family, at home.  
I wish I learned it sooner.


  1. Great perspective. I often am packing up and the park or a friend's house or for a walk, just out with Kekoa. With Malia here now, I am trying to learn to love home time too, since it is so much harder to get two babies out the door!

  2. you know, i had never thought of it that way, but you really put it into words. i can echo your sentiments exactly. my 2 kids are 8 & 9, and when they were babies & toddlers i couldn't get out of the house fast enough, scheduled errands or a coffee date, or an outing, etc...every day. and that's exactly what i was doing - escaping home and all that i wasn't accomplishing there! of course, things couldn't be more different now, at 8 & 9, they are super entertaining and easy to be around, and they spend long periods of time engaged in their own activities while i putter away in the house. i'd say they're now a treat to hang out with at home or away! cheers, beth

  3. hsiaolie- you are a super mom! two babies is a handful. i used to just love my double stroller!

    beth- i agree, now that the kids are older it is a pleasure to spend time with them anywhere! wow, you were a busy mama with 2 little ones so close in age!
