Simon: Monster face, complete with sound effects. Rawr!

Sorry about the week of no blogging. It was a very emotional week for me and despite having a list of posts I wanted to write, and photos to go with them, every time I sat at the computer to blog I would get a bit overwhelmed. A case of real life interfering with blog life. However, after a weekend break I am feeling a bit mentally refreshed and hope to be back on track this week.

I adore this portrait of Simon. We were playing outside the other day, and he was chasing a friend around the yard, pretending to be a monster. I convinced him to stand still just long enough for me to capture it. I love the muddy hands (with matching muddy legs, out of the photo’s frame). This portrait makes me smile so much that I have it as my background to make me smile whenever I log into my computer.

Today we are cleaning the house up, after taking the weekend off. Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
