I almost didn't bother this month, due to aforementioned challenges, especially the illness that has left us exhausted and doped up. But I don't want to NOT be a part of this every month. These ladies let me celebrate with them, whine with them, laugh with them. I cannot slip away.
My photos represent my February, and are, as such, reminiscent of quiet, of coldness, of looking forward to warmer, healthier days. My snuggling children, the endless baths to amuse them, my husband as he tirelessly tends to their needs, the little spring tree we hope will brighten things. There is nothing earth-shattering here. Just longing. And, oddly, comfort.
