When I chose this week’s theme, I partly chose it to selfishly challenge myself to get my camera out and shoot this week. I also wanted it to be somewhat of a challenge.
I tried to think of things that bring me comfort … and the obvious came to mind. A cup of coffee in the morning. My daughter’s hugs and kisses. My husband’s hugs and kisses. A good book. Light summer rain. Waves on the beach. The scent of vanilla. Mom’s chicken and dumplings. Flip flops. Fresh sheets. Black and white chapstick (reminds me of my dad).
That beautiful light at the end of the day … or as my friend Kristin calls it, the day’s exhale. Oh yes.
My kiddo. I find comfort in the everyday. The things that make her her. Like wearing my glasses and “reading” the US Weekly.
I admit it. I love Tivo. At the end of the day when Emma’s asleep and hubby is teaching a night class, there’s nothing quite like sinking into the couch with a snack to catch up on my favorite shows.
Snuggled under the quilt my grandmother made.
So what brings you comfort? Or how did YOU interpret this week’s theme?
