the sling diaries volume iv: dreams










in the quiet of your heart, you will hear them.
little wild moments, free of judgement and fear.
they are authentic, sweet girls, and they are yours.
no need to be embarrassed; don't be pressured into shame.
deep, deep, desires and your hopes of life and change.
dreams in the night sky, dreams at the sun's rise.
twirling through your headspace,
everything your heart says,
v i b r a t i n g  w i d l y,
jotted down on a page.

i've been thinking a lot about my own dreams lately, the things i've been lucky enough to accomplish this year and everything i hope for 2014. the sling diaries experience has brought out the creative side of me that had been pushed to the back of my mind for a while. it has inspired me to bare everything - to have the confidence to believe in myself and manifest some of my own treasured visions to light. to contribute to something even bigger than myself. to help others. to believe that the only person standing in my way in this great big world is me. thank you, as always, for following our journey and listening to my words.

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Sofia- having a bit of fun playing around after our sling diaries shoot
Alba- also in on the aforementioned shenanigans ;)

Here we are, two portraits left until the end of the series. I'm a bit behind some of you still, but I feel proud as I near the end of this project that I know I will see to completion. I feel a book and some framed prints coming on!

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Alba- most everyone thinks you're a serious baby, but I always see your smirks.
Sofia- wrapped up in linen, never too old to be worn - I'll treasure this photo forever.

I cannot believe we're almost done with this series! Only a few weeks left now. Just looking at this diptych I am reminded of how much my children have grown over the year. I can't keep thinking about it or I might get too teary... thank you all for letting me catch up these past few days. This blog of mine will be getting some much needed attention and care in the new year : )

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Sofia- the way you take your naps now makes me giggle! You don't seem to mind at all how uncomfortable this looks.
Alba- post-diaper changing session. It doesn't get much better than a tiny baby bum!

Sofia-  tiny dancer with sunlit toes.
Alba- (more chunky baby toes!) this time, within grabbing distance.

and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving,
