in my shoes | iPhoneography

I used to write in a journal. I still do, but it is different now. I write to my daughter. I write for her. I write so she can remember the times she won’t remember. I began doing this the day I found out I was expecting & plan to do this for her until she has children of her own. So she may someday take my thoughts, words and actions and laugh…cry…learn. I use these simple journals. I love them. Of course, hers are pink. Hot pink.

However, I do journal in my own way, just for me. I take pictures. Now that I have an iPhone, I have found myself taking pictures a lot more than I did before. I grab moments here & there that make me smile. Glimpses of beautiful in my otherwise hectic day. This is how I see my life. You can read below for words, or you can just enjoy the pictures. I like the pictures best. :D

    I love that you journal to her. Reminds me in a way of when I used to journal to my “future” husband starting from when I was 12? I dated my NOW husband for 6 years, never telling him, and gave him the letters on our honeymoon. It was really special, and I’m sure your letters to her will be even more so!ReplyCancel
