Every morning I have the same routine. I wake up at 6am, wake our teenager (who could sleep through a tornado, and regularly through his alarm clock) make my coffee, turn on the morning news, and open my laptop. For 45 minutes I check my emails, make my to-do list, and pop into my Google Reader to scan a few of my favorite blogs ... and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Then the kids are up, chaos breaks out, and I enter the morning scramble of getting the kids ready, making lunches and dropping everyone off at school, hopefully on time, with jackets, lunches, and homework in hand.
But that 45 minutes every morning is my saving grace. It's the one thing that prepares me for the day ahead.
She inspires me to be a better photographer, and better mother. She has the most wonderful adventures and activities planned for her children, and she captures them so beautifully.
She really does make things seem that way. Although a few photographs from her recent trip to Gargantua Caves did leave me holding my breath just a little.
But seriously, who doesn't love their blog? They make everything from cooking, to decor, and style seem so easy.
I absolutely love her 'this moment' posts. She reminds me that I need to capture more of these and live more in the moment.
Melissa truly is one of the sweetest people I have met. Her thrift store find fashion and decor makeovers are amazing. Now if only she would come and lay out my clothes for me each day so I stay out of my sweats.
