Happy Friday!

Hi friends, I hope you have a fun weekend lined up! Here's the last three days of my 366 (the extra day is because this year is a leap year). I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed doing this photo a day. It's a form of gratitude, of staying present. It forces me to search for the unique moments of my day. I guess for some people, they get the same out of meditation. I have always felt like photography keeps me focussed on the here and now.
 1.6.16: I love playing board games, but sweet Jesus, this one was never ending. It's called Trouble for a reason people.
 1.7.16: I wish I may I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. (The funny back story about this photo is that she asked what we were having for dinner, and when I said Tacos, she ran upstairs and put on her fancy christmas dress. What would she have worn if I said we were having lobster?)
1.8.16: That Friday feeling. I parked my truck on a beautiful country road on route home from work. I basked in the sun for a few moments before picking up my daughter. It always feels rejuvenating to stand in a wide open space, sun on my face, and take in some big breaths of fresh air.
I rested my iphone on my truck hood and tried the self timer feature. It's not my best angle, and I'm pretty sure you can see straight up my nose, but it really did feel that great in that moment.

I hope you have an amazing night! I'm going to pour a glass of wine and watch some more episodes of Making a Murderer. Have you been watching it? I don't think I've ever shouted at my TV like this before. Sometimes we have to pause it, stand up and pace the floor for a moment. It's an incredibly well done documentary, but absolutely infuriating when you see the justice system at its most corrupt.
