Tuesday thoughts...

Hi! I fell a little behind on Project Life. I used to order pictures every two to three weeks. Last night I was going through seven weeks of photos! A lot. But once again, I felt the beauty of this project and gratitude for what I have.
Love taking photos of these five! They are so fun and so happy when they are together. Praying their paths will always be side by side.
Yesterday, on Pinterest, I came across a link to a blog post about the birth of a little girl Nella. It was such a beautiful and emotional story. Welcoming new baby myself just four months ago, I really felt this story. It made me fall on my knees and pray for my blessings once again! When the blog post has over 3,500 comments - you know it's worth reading. If you have a few minutes go over and read it HERE. But make sure you have a box of tissues by your side. I needed two boxes.


Kinda need to catch up after a busy weekend. I hope to be back very soon though.

Have a great day!

  1. Anya, i read the littly bunny's story. When you read something like this you realize how blessed we are to have healthy, beautiful kids. The story really touched my heart. I can't believe it's been six months already since i gave birth to Slavic. When I think about that moment when I got to hold him for the first time still brings the tears of happiness. It was like yesterday.
    And I really like the pictures in her blog. They alone tell the whole story

  9. Ой Катенька, что с тобой случилось, ты случайно не простудилась:)))) Да,я на твоём месте тоже подумала бы что сама с собой разговариваю:)) Просто, понимаешь потеплело и все как букашки снова повылазили на улицу - это я вообще то о нас говорю. Жаль пропустить такую прекрасную погоду последних тёплых дней осени, вот и гуляем по улице...

  20. Katya what is the lense that you had on your camera? The one that you had at the wedding? I want to get it too. What do you like about it the most? Thanks. Inna K

  21. Wow, so many comments!!! Katya, I have to agree, you have to leave more comments, vidish kakoi response :) And to answer you question, it's actually maternity/postpartum and I love working there :)
    Anya, the story was so touching!!! And especially since it's so close to what I do as a maternity nurse. It's not often, but we do see loss and the anxiety and heartbreak of a family with a child that has a medical condition, syndrome or disorder. But I feel so privileged that God placed me there, at these times to be with these families, to pray with them and give them hope, and be a support. Now I know why Dimochka had to be in the NICU (although a minimal time and without complications) so that I can be a support and give guidance to others. This story reminds me again of how much more thankful I should be to God for the gift that He has given us, a healthy, beautiful boy! Thanks for that reminder! :)
    And also Anya, waiting for that 'hope to be back very soon' ;)

  22. Inna, I used 50 mm 1.4 lens at the wedding. Well not only at the wedding, this is my favorite lens now. I don't even take it off anymore. I love that I can take pictures without using flash. It makes the pictures a lot lighter than kit lens so you don't use the need to use the flash and get more natural looking pictures. I recommend it to everyone. You can come to my house and try it :)
