i found this most precious and whimsical poem by maryann k. cusimano... perhaps the sweetest poem i've ever read... and i couldn't help but set it to these recent photos taken by my husband at the beach.

normally on this here blog, i like to post photos that have taken {and, thus, am not in}. but after reading this article that my friend tammi shared on her facebook page, mom whispers, i realized the importance of posting photos of myself as the mom that i am these days... even if i have not yet shed that twenty or so pounds that i had hoped to by now. i'm by no means a bikini babe on the beach. but that is not what my son cares about or expects. 

it's my quiet, my calm, my wings, my arms, dry towels, dinner, my voice in book or a song, his favorite giraffe at bedtime, my touch, a kiss, and a home that he's looking for in me.

and that he has.

LOVE.

These photos are amazing, G. You need to print these out with the poem on them and frame them as a series.. Totally brought tears to my eyes.

glad to hear it, nikki. you have to love cyberspace for the inspiration and encouragement that keeps flowing from person to person for this very reason. i'm so glad my post could inspire you to do that.

Well my goodness. Guess what? You commented on my blog back when I started and I finally have replied. (since May '12) I love your blog style and your photographs. Nikki(above)just joined me last week. I didn't recognize any of the fellow commenters here. Will you please follow me. I'd love it!!!! ok? Where do I join you? Just via email? Is that the only option? That's fine, but just wondering. Thank you in advance! :D
