We’ve had a pretty crazy couple of months. Really crazy, actually.
We moved. We photographed a couple of weddings. It’s the busy season for photography. We’re adjusting to life in a new community. We’re trying to find our life buried in the bottom of boxes. We have a seven year old. And a six year old. And a one year old. To name a few.
Many people could go through much more and not be phased by it. I admire those with “roll with the punches” personalities. I look up to those who thrive on busy-go-go-go-what’s-next lifestyles. I wish I could be more like “those” people.
But, I’m not.
Instead, I exist in survival mode and count the days, minutes, and hours until things slow down. Until we can breathe.
(Did I mention we have a one year old? Things aren’t likely to slow down anytime soon.)
However, there is one thing I have found that seems to remedy the chaos that often invades my mind. One thing. . .
I’m not talking about traveling over oceans or through mountains to escape the reality that is before me. And I’m not referring to a mental or emotional escape that requires extensive money or time or commitment. I’m just talking about one step away. . . for thirty minutes. (Give or take a few.)
My ever supportive husband was quick to answer. . . let’s go. . .
So we went. Chad, Charlie, Chanelle, Meadow and I loaded in the car and took a five minute drive to a place where we could feel the cool air against our faces and experience all the beauty that nature so graciously offers.
Thirty minutes. . . that all it takes.
I would love if you would take a moment to visit 30 minutes in the life of a most wonderful photographer, Kristi Burton. She is a Bountiful, Utah Photographer at Kristi Burton Photography.
