My friend Sarah had this great idea to document her ‘real’ life in photographs everyday for one week and invited anyone who was interested to do the same. I thought it was a neat idea to post normal life pictures that capture (or expose) the mundane and the messy that tend to get skipped when people blog. I was planning on participating too, but kept waiting for ‘normal’ life to happen. My first excuse was that Ishaan was away at camp and that life without Ishaan just wasn’t real. Then our friend Sara (no H) was visiting from Brooklyn and that was tons of fun but not ‘normal’ and then we were planning a trip to Brooklyn etc. etc. But I realized that I was missing the whole point of the exercise. Things happen: blueberries ripen and you make pie, friends visit, county fairs go on, people travel, kids get sick, hurricanes hit and it is all the real stuff of life. Okay, so maybe hurricanes and power outages are not normal, but they happen and you deal with them.
Maybe sometime this fall I will participate in the everyday project because I like the idea, but for now here is a little glimpse into the last couple of weeks in our life.
