two days in the same pajamas

a napping, sick, two-year old

an only child

no shower yet (again)

six days before Christmas

life

a mother of three children

tired

a history major

laughter

a brain tumor patient

honest

a self-portrait

transparent

a wife & partner

grateful

contemplating dinner tonight

reflective

a friend

no make up

laundry to sort and fold

my glamour

a photographer

love

two boys with dyslexia

beautiful

wishing time stood still

a writer

content

trying not to sweat the small stuff

a sense of humor

contemplative…

This is Real. This is me.  Who are you?
