Yesterday I went on a little outing with The Squishy One to enjoy the fall weather. I accidentally left my phone at home, and it was probably the best thing I did all day. Claire and I shared several quiet moments of fall leaves, clear blue skies, and her silly concerned face when she felt the breeze on her skin. The moment belonged to just us, and it didn't have to compete for attention with instagram or a text message or anything that my cell phone and its constant notifications has to offer. I'm going to make a conscious effort to disconnect more often and be more present in whatever moment I'm in.
I'll leave you with a few pictures I took of our fun neighbor friends and their gorgeous children. I love that they opted for a casual and sporty look (I'm getting a slight vibe that they love the Crimson Tide - are you?). If you have any tips for photographing a busy two-year-old, send them my way please!
