four years & three days

Four years and three days. I was looking again at the picture I took of Emma today (the second photo down). It hangs on my fridge in a beautiful 8x10 print. It was taken four years and three days ago. (One of these days I'm going to have a canvas done of it.) The time has gone by entirely too quickly. She's grown well over a foot since then, and her little features now look down on me by several inches. I still love the original most of all. Most of all I'm so thankful for all of these years of {project 365}. Having captured little freeze frame moments of life to treasure them everyday for years to come. In four years and three days from now, God willing, I will look back and be grateful for this magic moment captured in time.




"When we went hunting the Dragon
In the days when we were young,
We tossed the bright world over our shoulder
As bugle and baldrick slung;
Never was world so wild and fair
As what went by on the wind,
Never such fields of paradise
As the fields we left behind"

-G.K. Chesterton
'The Hunting of the Dragon'
