"THE GRASS IS GREENER WHERE YOU WATER IT"
Not sure who said it, but if you're ever looking for wise words, look no further. I do best when I find short and sweet mantras to help remind me of simple truths that help focus my mental energy in the right direction and that's what this saying is for me. This family not only has this very quote hanging in their home (quote twins!!!), they're living proof that it's true. And ya know what? I think they've got the greenest grass in all of Central PA. Especially in the age of social media, it's so easy to look into other people's lives and covet what they have. What's not easy is remembering that behind every picture-perfect smile is a story. And most likely it's a story that includes some sort of struggle and hard work in addition to the shiny version of happy we get to see from the outside. It's good for me to remember that everyone has to work to get what they want, even if the instagram post doesn't talk about it.
Basically, your neighbors' grass is green FOR A REASON. And sitting around wishing yours were green isn't going to change a thing.
You've gotta water it! You've gotta do something. Anything.
For me, on this busy day of motherhood/entreprenuership, that something is blogging this session that's been so patiently sitting on my hard drive for months and months. (How did I let that happen?! I mean, this family is just outta this world amazing in a million ways. And this session makes me smile so big!) No, this post won't change the world or turn me into the biggest, baddest, most famous photographer in the world, but it's something. And that's good enough for now! :)
Interested in seeing your family on my blog several months after our session? (Just kidding! Or am I?) CONTACT ME and we'll get started chatting about all the deets! And get the scoop on my family work HERE while you're at it!
