Shooting everyday has been a real challenge for me so I have to try really hard to find beauty in everything. There's a storage container at work and I guess it has been there a while since moss is growing around it. I've never seen or felt real moss before and I think it's absolutely breathtaking. I must've looked really weird crouching and petting the moss, and then making a photo of the moss (and my phone).

We spent the majority of the day working on the yard today and I brought out some chalk for the kids to play with. I drew the two hearts for my two hearts, and Ethan drew a picture of Mommy (green blob on the left). Initially, Mommy only had one eye (possibly from always being behind the camera with one eye open) and no mouth. I asked where my mouth is and he drew one that took over the entire face. This is his first picture of Mommy...and hopefully more to come.
