Capture the Everyday was created by Melissa and is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, I’ll issue a simple challenge to capture something that’s a part of your daily life. You can post just a picture or add some words to go along with it. You’ll have a week to get it done and then I’ll issue another. It’s a quick, easy way to start capturing those little parts of life we sometimes take for granted.
This Week’s Assignment: A Pretty Landscape
This picture was from a trip to the NC Coast that Jerry and I took the summer of 2008. I was just a few weeks pregnant with Oscar and we had NO idea what was in store for us. This was one of my favorite trips and I have so many happy memories from that weekend. It’s a lot of fun to remember the anticipation we felt being pregnant with our first child and having no idea how our lives would change.
The photo itself is taken off of a pier of the many nets that are cast each day, hoping for fresh seafood. Looking at it now, it seems that we had cast our own nets and what we got were our amazing boys. Now that we have welcomed our second child, I still look back on this trip with a smile, knowing that what we got was better than we could have ever imagined.
